Slow Transfer Speed on DS916+ newbie

Postby eziggy3 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 1:40 am

My first NAS. Just installed the DS916+ Boy do I wish I read this forum before I splurged for the 916. All the reviews were glowing.

Transfer speeds are about 45/44 MB/s using the Blackmagic test app. Should be around 100+ correct?

Here is the setup:
iMac 27" with OS X Sierra
Wired gigabit connection with the supplied CAT5 cables bonded. 2000MBs Full Duplex.
Router is Time Capsule (Gigabit)
Internet speed is 150/150
Running 4x6TB WD Red 7200 rpm

I would greatly appreciate any advice on what I can do to get some speed out of this thing. Bought it for my Plex server but having second thoughts now.
