The box is pretty neat looking it wraps up on itself and has a unique design. Packaging alone does not a good product make, but we do notice the small things.

The box contents are pretty straight forward. both ends of the unit, 1 ft power cables (standard 2 prong), and 1 foot network cables.

You can see the package did come with registration material, and a quick setup guide.

  1. Oh, and unless you have a high speed disk setup, (SSDs or a fast raid setup) I also suggest using a test method that won’t bottleneck on disk write speed.

  2. Last time I checked 24Mbps =/= 20% of 1000Mbps.
    Judging from your straight Gig “control” speed test, I suggest investing in new Ethernet cables.

    • Thank you for your input, allow me to clarify the 1000Mbps that a router allows is a theoretical maximum transfer speed. The speed boasted by the manufacturers does not account for potential signal degradation given the distance between two devices, the read write capabilities of the two devices, or the other network traffic that the router is passing. The utility I have been using to test Network speeds is called “lan speed test”, and utilizes the windows networking functionality to transfer files. My associate used a client and server software made by passmark to perform his benchmarks, he received more accurate results. I will be performing these benchmarks and posting an update soon. I hope you will come back and see the more accurate results.

      • FYI “lan speed test” is also using client/server for testing. (SMB?) I think the delineation you are looking for is that passmark bypasses the need for a hard drive to be in the testing path. Lan Speed Test requires that the hard drive be in the testing path.

        Passmark would be a much better test than a file transfer. I look forward to seeing the results. Thanks
