This is my final attempt to get some resolution on this issue.
I have the best computer in the world, a Mac Mini running Lion 10.8.3… I was so excited to buy a cheap NAS from my fav HD manufacturer, 3tb with the promise of time machine capability.
For the record, time machine backups work (sonmetimes they corrupt, not sure if WD or Mac issue here).
I get decent transfer rates, both upload and download (after I removed all the non-essential services).
BUT, when I try to use the device to browse folders for photos, files, etc. It is just way to SLOW! To the point that the preview application will CRASH! This really gets my jimmies rustled.
From a Windows 7 VM on my Mac, the NAS performance is PERFECT! Browsing folders and opening pics is perfect.
This is all running over a wired 1GB network.
So disappointed with the Mac OS X support from WD on this one.
PLEASE come out with a fix ASAP WD! I’ll be waiting…
