Before everyone attacks, I’ve done lots of searching and read 3 - 4 relevant threads on the whole transfer speeds not being upto Gigabit standards.
I agree with some of the posters that fitting a Gigabit port when the device cannot even get close to half of this speed is not acceptable and I don’t understand why some of the members here take the condoscending approach of trying to inform posters that a Gigabit specification does not mean Gigabit speeds. Fitting a Gigabit port and shouting about it on your tech specs / packaging clealry infers you will get decent speed. Nobody is expecting true Gigabit or NAS speeds - but what we have is pathetic.
I use a MacBook Pro with every device connected directly to a Gigabit router with Cat6 cable. I get very fast speeds to my NAS and a very fast net connection to the router. So the router, NAS and MacBook all transfer files at speeds that warrant a Gigabit port.
The WD TV is super slow. I have the latest firmware. Cat6 direct to router etc etc.
So - what have people heard from WD on this? Is this a permanent hardware limitation (5400rpm drive and small cache) or is it something they are just taking their time to look at firmware wise.
I don’t want to be the ■■■■■■ who just bought a good (but not great) product just before they uprated the hardware / HD to deliver decent speeds.
