I inherited an FCPX project on a QNAP TR-004 (16TB).
The client was complaining that this RAID unit beach balls on her Mac Mini Studio.
She is convinced her older iMac (not pro) was faster.
I did a BMD Disk Speed test and on M1 Pro MBP it did 160/180.
Sad compared to the local drive at 5600/5800.
I tested my OWC Envoy Pro and that did 2600/2900.
So no experience with these QNAPs but it does have it set to software control.
The drive is full so I wasn’t going to start changing the dip switches.
I have no idea how that works and if it’s something you do on the fly.
I have faith in the MBP M1s as far as future RAIDs.
Just give it time I guess.
