lol

its even nasty to look at.... til you pile them ontop of each other cable-tie all the cables really really neatly, hide them around the back and have the LEDs facing all the same way with the hub sitting on top with wires out the back and lights on the front and you turn them on by flipping the socket switch that powers the 6way wall extention... its light a fecking Xmas tree lol


If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

I got myself a Zyxel nsa-325 last week and am very impressed with it so far, transfer speeds etc are pretty quick, just ordering myself a kingston usb3.0 stick though as I am yet to experience the speeds of 3.0

180mb/s is not that fast.. It's good don't get me wrong

My Intel ssd has a write speed of 450mb/s and the top speed of a good quality usb3.0 cable is around 5gb/s.

It's probs as your file was only small only at 150gb, dident give it time to run up to speed.

Btw I'm an ICT and computing Student and training hardware technician so I do know what I'm on about.

Really????

LOLLOLLOLLOLLOL


I suspect your SSD may benchmark @ over 400, but try a real-world I/O operation, I struggle to hit 800MB/S copying large files (1GB+) from my workstation to my SAN, 180MBs realworld is not too shabby over USB x
