I am considering the WD My Cloud EX4, but I’ve seen many posts about the slow transfer speed. I attribute most of those to some other bottle neck in the system. I am wondering if one connects a computer via a LAN connection to this and the LAN is not limiting, how fast can data be streamed to this device? Lets assume that it is configured in RAID 5 and that the hard drives are the standard 3 TB models sold today. How fast can data be transferred from the device as well (uploaded?) .
If the interface is a Gigabit ethernet, I assume then the rate could be as high as 125 Megabytes per second. That would be great. Is that speed attainable?
