**bleep** it. A 1g nic in the product feature list was a ( very ) major selling point in my priority list when I made the purchase. I didn’t read anywhere in the product description about it being a gimmick or flat-out lie. It’s the same concept as buying a supposed super car and then finding out it’s got a 4-banger under the hood. That’s false advertising. Pretty sure that’s still a crime in some countries…
The official specs from here:
" Gigabit Ethernet , USB 2.0, HDMI, Composite A/V, Component video, Optical audio"
were used during my decision. Soooo … ?
Noone (except novice or just stupid) should expect an actual 1000mbps rate due to many variables in the equation, unless you’ve spent many thousands system wide. However, 50MB/s +/- is a normal reality in a true 1G LAN with good equipment (including drives). I get 60MB/s+ consistently to my NAS from my main rig and that’s with the drives in slowest redundancy XR2 mode.
