I'm a new owner of a DS211. I've currently got one of the Seagate LP 2TB 5900RPM drives inside. There is nothing in the other bay currently.
On the initial boot up and install, I had the DS211 do the scan of the drive to identify bad sectors. Nothing exciting turned up.
Since then, I've been able to access the DS211, but am having extremely slow transfer speeds to and from it. I understand there is a little loss of top end speed by not using a 7200RPM HD, but I'm getting 200-300k per second transfers between the DS211 and an external HD that is plugged into the USB drive in the front of it.
I've regularly get similar speeds over the ethernet connection it has to an N speed wireless router.
When I plug an ethernet cable between my laptop and the DS211, I've seen it as high as 2-4MB per second, but no where near the 50MB per second I've seen on some review sites.
I really want to love the server, but it is cripplingly slow. Any ideas on what I should look for to troubleshoot?
