    No significant reason why not, I'd just rather a 'native' network solution.

    That's a bit pants! To repeat gwendes' question, "Is that all on gigabit?"
    No, on 100Mb I get around 6MB/s write. When I tested with gigabit and jumbo frames with an intel card I was closer to 9MB/s. It is just a simple storage processor in a soho nas. If you want a nas thats fast then you are going to have to spend more money. You might be able to get closer to 10-12 with the nv+. I just wouldn't count on it being very fast.

    I can hook my nv+ at work up again and run a few tests. I'm using it to store copies of my vmware disk files, so its not too time critical as I only use them for disaster recovery for the base images. data is backed up to tape still.

    Re: Backup options (again!)

    That is indeed pants. Must be something wrong... I wouldn't expect USB 2.0 speeds but at least faster than my XBOX can write data on a T100 (10-12MBps)

    How about an XBOX?
