DLink DNS-321

Anyone have any experience with the DNS-312 two drive NAS from Dlink?

It is working, but it is very slow copying files to it.

After getting Jumbo Frames (9000) enabled I was able to get it up to
6-9MB/s transfer speed on a gigiabit LAN, which seems awfully slow to
me.

And sometimes it is under 5MB/s, though not very often now.

Those sound like Fast Ethernet (100Mbps) speeds. Are you sure it's
negotiating Gigabit successfully?

There is a table here, of NAS performance over GbE. This is one
way to shop for a NAS.

The reviews on Newegg for your purchase, aren't stellar.
A lot of reports of slow transfer performance. It sounds
like it might be a Linux box inside, but I don't know if
that makes it a candidate for some hacking.

You could try reading the part number off whatever passes
for an embedded processor in there, and see if there are
any technical comments about it. Maybe the main chip, is
a "known dog".

Ah, thank you for this. Filling it is annoying, but it should be fast
enough, once full, for what I bought it for (serving xdiv or h.264 DVD
rips on the LAN).

I bought it as a stop-gap before I invest in a really good 4 drive NAS
and, hopefully, 4x4TB drives sometime next year. Set it up as a RAID-5
and offload ALL the video onto it for now and for a while into the
future.

Yes, I relied on a recommendation and didn't do proper research. I am
tempted to return it, but it already has >2TB of data on it... and I
think it will work, albeit annoyingly.
