I am just started with a MyBook WorldEditionII (1,5 TB) and I am quit frustrated because of transfer speed. I tested on 100mbit and 1000mbit LAN, and I have to say that there is NO difference between. The box is so slow that I am really angry about WD.
I logged in via SSH and checked the share dev (md4). the hdparm performance tool gives the following:
[root@MyBookWorld /]# hdparm -t /dev/md4
Timing buffered disk reads: 46 MB in 3.13 seconds = 14.70 MB/sec
what the hell is that??? these WD harddrive should give a result of 70 MB/sec. so it´s quite clear that the network performance is also so bad.
Anyone around who can confirm this? is there any other system around giving a better performance?
