The key difference to QNAP TS-119PII and QNAP TS-112 and are processor speed (Marvell 88F6282 at 2.0GHz and Marvell 88F6281 at 1.2GHz) and RAM size (512MB, 512MB, and 256MB). Buffalo HD-LX2TU3 has a Seagate Desktop HDD aka Barracuda (ST2000DM001) inside.
I connect NAS to computer directly, use the same test sample in File Transmission with Different Sharing Solution on NAS, and use Linux command mount for better performance.
- Buffalo HD-LX2TU3 is Seagate Desktop HDD 2TB aka Barracuda (ST2000DM001). with USB 3.0 but connects to USB 2.0 on Lenovo: ThinkCentre Edge 72z.
In QNAP TS-112 with OCZ SSD Performance Report, I think the Marvell 88F6281 in QNAP TS-112 is the bottleneck. With a faster processor, QNAP TS-119PII has about 5% decrease on reading but 25% increase on writing.
When compared WD10EFRX to OCZ Vertex on QNAP TS-119PII, about 1% increase on reading and 14% increase on writing. It seems traditional hard drive has write advantage than SSD. Maybe it is related to the Trim issue on SSD.
