Yawn... Wake me up when off-the shelf NAS boxes either maximise Gigabit bandwidth or are cheap enough to justify the slow speed.

Agreed, they could be cheaper but then don't forget they offer other advantages some of us need i.e. easy of setup and low power consumption.

Bit-tech, any chance you could update your performance charts in this review or future storage reviews to show baselines Win7PC-2-Win7PC transfers, or Linux for that matter on similar storage (green drives) and network (1GbE) hardware? This would allow us to view NAS storage performance in the context that most of us are familiar with i.e. peer to peer Windows shares. The added context would be very helpful, you could use two "Affordable" build machines perhaps....

I don't see why not - will try to get the numbers in the next week or two using our test gear!

certainly doesn't meet the first criteria, but you can get the netgear stora for 50 for a (empty) 2 drive NAS. Top speed is only about 20MB/s on large sequential files, but the speeds are at least above the truly bottom of the barrel "gigabit" equipped NAS's that can't even max out a 100Mbit connection.

The Stora isn't fast, but it is low power and it is cheap (which is reflected in it's software....) I had been holding out on NAS's as I always thought they were overpriced for what they were - 50 got me the functionality of a NAS without thinking I'd have been better to build myself a low power pc.

quick one - not sure if it's mentioned in the review (and I just missed it), but I'm assuming that drive spindown is present?

reason I ask is because I've read on other sites that a lot of the cheaper NAS boxes don't really offer it...

Given that the DS210+ got a recommended award I'd say the answer to that question is pretty clear, even if this is half the price.

Was this not tested with iSCSI and maybe also with different Jumbo frame types? Jumbo frames will most properly not used as a plug and play option for most users and the lack to adjust MTU sizes on unmanaged switches is also not helping here. Eitherway it would be cool to see the difference what iSCSI/Jumbo Frames does to the performance of this unit.
