Bob and Mark,

This is a timely discussion however, I am already down the road a bit as I have already purchased the TS-813x. Here are the details:

TS-831x 4GB ($799)
QNLAN10G1TA 10GBe network card ($139)
8 x 4TB HGST 7200 drives in Raid 6
iMac Pro w/ 10GBe

The iMac Pro is directly attached the the network card in the QNAP via Cat6. I am getting pretty slow speeds, or so it seems to me, <300 write / 480 read. Seems that with 8 drives (N-2), 6 drives after the Raid 6 that I should be getting 600-700 read/write? Bob, is this because as you said the 831x is extremely slow?

If I return the 831x and upgrade to the TVS-831e (couldn't find this on QNAP's site so maybe you meany the 871e?) and the different QNAP QXG-10G1T network card, will I see better speeds via direct connection to the iMac Pro's 10GBe?

I am looking to use this as a NAS located in a different room about 60 feet away via Cat 6 and want to use it to both store and edit video from.
