I thought one of the selling points of the My Book Live over the older My Book World was speed. A much faster processor?
I’m becoming increasingly frustrated with my MBL so I did some simple tests, up and downloading files to both by FTP. Both NAS drives are plugged into the same router.
Apart from in one test, the MBL was considerably slower:
30mb file - MBL 31.58 secs, MBW 21.17 secs
55mb folder - MBL 32.20 secs MBW 14.07 secs
55mb folder - MBL 21.93 secs MBW 27.45 secs
8.3 mb file - MBL 4.14 secs MBW 2.6s secs
I’m unimpressed with this and think it’s going to be sent back.
One thing I have noticed though is the green light on the MBL in constantly flashing, even though no devices are reading or writing to / from it.
