SLOW!!! Expect 7.9 MB/sec

by Robert on 11/2/2012

With a gigabit interface I was expecting much more but after unpacking and running several tests I found that in a RAID 5 setup using the 4 supplied 500mb drives the device bogged down at 7.9 MB/sec. This compared to my other network server which averages 78.7 MB/sec, nearly ten times the speed!!! In RAID 0 (should be NO overhead on the processor) the performance goes up to a whopping 13.9 MB/sec. Still nothing to write home about since one lost drive and you can say goodbye to your data. FWIW, The reason for this poor performance is due to the measly 300mhz processor. Sorry, but even at $170 this NAS is over priced. Based on other reviews the extra functionality of this device is iffy at best so I didn't bother testing and when a drive fails (assuming you used RAID 5) the device goes offline until a replacement drive is installed and the array is rebuilt. I couldn't imagine how long that would take.... In the end, If performance is at all a consideration then STAY FAR AWAY from the CM404. I only wish someone had warned me before I ordered this from Ant-online, looks like I have to pay a 15% restocking fee IF they even let me return it. :(
