I like QNAP TS-119PII‘s flexible hard disk tray which can fix any 3.5″ or 2.5″ drive and swap easily. This time, I am going to test with my Seagate Laptop SSHD and Kingston SSDNow V+100. Let’s see the performance different compared to WD NAS 1TB WD10EFRX and OCZ Vertex 120GB SSD.
Seagate Laptop SSHD and WD NAS are both 1TB at 5400rpm with 64MB buffer. But Seagate Laptop SSHD is two plate while WD NAS is single, story density are different. Also, Seagate Laptop SSHD has an extra 8GB MLC as read-cache.
Kingston SSDNow V+100 is known for its aggressive garbage collection. More stroy may be found in Upgrade my iBook G4 with a SSD. OCZ Vertex 120GB SSD supports trim and QTS 4.0.2 which is based on Linux kernel 184.108.40.206 also support trim, too. But you must use wiper.sh to TRIM SSDs in QNAP storage device, I haven’t work it out on my device, yet. Both of them have 64MB ram cache.
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.
QNAP TS-119PII is configured with one of the storage device each time.
According to my MTU test, I keep it to use default 1500.
I also add test result from following as reference:
Seagate Laptop SSHD is still not as fast as WD NAS. Even I have test for more than 3 times, I didn’t see the benefit from SSD cache on Seagate Laptop SSHD. The different is about 10% on both read and write with both protocols.
Kingston SSDNow V+100 is about 10% faster on reading while 2% slower on writing with both protocols. I didn’t see performance benefit with its aggressive garbage collection in test.
SSD is still faster on reading while slower on writing compared to traditional hard disk or SSHD. It’s very similar result as in QNAP TS-119PII with OCZ SSD Performance Report and QNAP TS-112 with OCZ SSD Performance Report.
