The feature set is surprisingly bare-bones, although there is a USB printer server. RAID 0, 0+1, 5 and JBOD modes are supported with hot-swappable drives.

Performance, however, is excellent, in part due to the Intel Celeron D 352 @ 3.2GHz CPU and 512 MB of DDR2 memory. Our iozone-based tests had the 200rL topping the 1000 Mbps LAN, RAID 5 charts with slightly over 38 MBytes/s write throughput and in the top 5 for all other modes tested. Since only 9K jumbo frames are supported and our jumbo frame charts use 4K, we didn’t run jumbo frame tests.
