I may take a look at those as well. :)

Would you say it was reasonable that syncing 125,000 files @ ~18Gb would take just under 4 hours from a laptop with a SATAII disk (5,400rpm) over Gigabit ethernet direct to the DNS-323 with 2 500Gb 7,200rpm drives in RAID1 configuration? No jumbo frames.

Much slower than doing the same over USB2 to a NTFS disk and USB is presumably capable of only 300Mbps.

1.25mbytes/sec?  Unless they're really small files, that seems pretty slow.  I know this thing is pretty slow with small files...

I noticed a slow down backing up my laptop after I started using SVN repos on it. Now I've got lots of small files/folders (.svn) in every folder I'm backing up. So that fits with what is being said.

Copying large files is generally very quick.

I thought it might have been because I was doing it over wireless with a 2.5Ghz adapter (150Mbps) rather than the 5Ghz (300Mbps) one I was using previously. Don't think so though, still slow using a direct gigabit ethernet connection.

Well, SMB protocol over wireless connections is very slow anyway, there's a lot of back traffic, and the link is half-duplex.  I never expect any decent file sharing speed from a wireless connection.

It wasn't too bad over wireless n before all these small files appeared :)

I take it you would rate your Synology... looks good. Bit expensive though. I like my DNS-323, just a bit slow to backup my laptop. Perhaps I should look at an alternative method for doing it. The appeal of running robocopy every now and then is that the drives in the NAS aren't on all the time mirroring what's on the laptop. Anyway, sorry for hi-jacking your post OP.

Love the Synology DS209, it has blazing network speeds and tons of options.  Of course, it's also twice the price of the DNS-323 for an empty case.  I see the DNS-323 for at little as $134, the Synology DS209 set me back $299.

I'm waiting for the synology since the beg of the year to go on sale, but they never do.
I love the fact you can use it with IP Cameras.

The DNS-321/323 are slow.  I get between 8-18MB/s.

I recommend the Synology DS209, you won't be disappointed. :)  I also wished for a sale, but never got one.

A driveless Synology DS210J comes in at 159.89 vs. 144.43 for a DNS-323

Different model to yours?

It's apparently a newer but lower performance model from the info I have.  Still a lot faster than the DNS-323... :)

From this review: http://www.geek.com/articles/chips/review-synology-ds210j-network-attached-storage-device-2010028/

Quote
Dont forget though that the j models are not just a follow-up to the previous offerings, they are a budget-friendly consumer version. This means that relative to the older DS209 the DS210j has half the RAM (128MB vs. 256MB) and a slower clock speed (800MHz vs. 1.2GHz) which means slower performance and limitations on features like the number of supported surveillance cameras and maximum user accounts.

It does look good, but to be honest I probably would use a fraction of the features. I don't use most on the DNS-323 (print server, bit torrent, etc.)

I see it has a few USB ports and an ability to copy data FROM a source TO the NAS -- I'd want that the other way round...

Well, with the Synology DS209, you can connect USB drives and access them for read/write.  It will also handle NTFS USB drives, but the writing is pretty slow, about 6mbytes/sec.

You presumably can't copy data from NAS to USB without going via the network then.

Actually, I believe you can do backups to it, but I haven't explored those options yet.
