More about : speed usb ethernet sminlal a c 415 G Storage March 3, 2010 11:07:51 PM USB 2.0 would be the slowest. USB 2.0 has a theoretical speed of 60MByte/sec, but in practice it's pretty much limited to about 30-35MByte/sec for external disks. Gigabit Ethernet should be capable of up to about 100MByte/sec, although I don't have any personal experience with drive performance using it. USB 3.0 would be even faster. m 0 l soundefx March 4, 2010 12:11:16 AM I believe the ethernet NAS storage would be faster as in some cases, you will/should be able to get around 70 - 90 MB/s. Also, you have one central area for all your storage. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
