I have now 7 drives HDS5C4040 and the transfer rate increases to 120MB/sec from my i7 pc running windows 7/64 (same HDD) to a 3COM 4500 Giga switch connected to the DS1812+.
I did not do any fine tuning (all default on the Synology, PC and 3Com switch.
Very happy with my NAS. The unit came with DSM 3.2 installed and I noticed I could not add disc number 6 to the volume. DSM 3.2 storage manager only gave me the option to remove but not manage the volume. The same day DSM 4 was released and I installed and here we go ... I could increase the volume and have disc 7 now in and on my way to increase to over 22 TB.
