Benchmarks: File Copy and NASPT

There are trade-offs to a budget NAS and performance is one of them. The LinkStation 520 isn't a match for the pricier units in our line up, but the numbers are respectable and expectations should be kept in check - Buffalo's unit is by some distance the cheapest two-bay solution on show and the only one to include disks as part of the price tag.

Our File Copy Test, which entails transferring a mixed assortment of files totalling 8.83GB from our client to the server, shows the LS520 averaging a speed of 74MB/s.
