Network Attached Units, what transfer speeds are you getting?


I asked this NAS question differently the last time. I would like to know what you are getting in transfer speeds on a good business ready NAS unit. Any NAS unit. I would buy it online. Synology is a good product, sometimes. Wanted to know what else is out there. I know I can build one, someone on this site recommended a good choice.

What RAID are you using? What type of hard drives? What brand should I look at?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
