    I have a Synology 212J NAS with 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 hard drives and a PC with Gigabit LAN. Both are connected to an ASUS RT-N56U router and I am very happy with the set-up.

    The data transfer speeds from the PC to the NAS are between 35-45 MB/ps and from the NAS to the PC between 70-75 MB/ps.

    Are these transfer speeds about right or should they be higher ?

    I'm certainly not complaining but would like to know if I'm getting the optimum perfoemance and, if not, how I could improve it !

    Thank you.

    Sounds nice and quick to me. File transfer speeds depend on file sizes as well as speed. Try copying a big directory full of tiny clip art files and watch that speed bomb!

    OK, thanks for that Noiseboy.

    Just wasn't sure as I've seen posts on other threads from people with higher transfer speeds and so I wondered if mine were ok !

    Yhanks again :smashin:
