There is a lot of noise about how slow the NSLU2 is. The real question is, Is it fast enough to do the things you want to do? I present as an example that the NSLU2 is “fast enough” this situation:
- One of my computers was downloading some large files to the NSLU2′s drives taking up my full DSL bandwidth.
- Simultaneously, on another computer I was watching a video that had been previously stored on the NSLU2. It was a 42 minute video, at roughly 350MB. There were no hiccups or interruptions.
What is the total bandwidth of these two activities? Who cares!?! The point is that it did what I needed it to do.
