Not bad for 2.5" disks and even faster than my desktop's old sata 2 disk. At least for reading.
@Antony Leather: You said that you took noise and hard drive temperature into consideration. I miss those in your article. I would really like to hear about your DSM's CPU temp after load.
My DS ended up with 74°C CPU and ~40°C for the HDs (except the one next to the CPU with 45°C). I'm happy with the disks, but the CPU seems to be a bit hot.
Noise: The spin sound of the 2.5" disks is louder than the fan. So overall really quiet.

If I had this in a PC form factor, I would need a keyboard and monitor available wherever I was going or bring it with me.
