We plugged in the Eminent HD Media Player via the USB 3.0 connection and transferred files across.
We then thought we’d test a more realistic transfer of a collection of over 50 large .AVI files – similar to that of a ‘movie collection’ – totaling over 53 GB of data.
53.6 GB in 9 mins 13 seconds. When transferring music you will find the average speed drops closer to around 70-80 MB/s, due to lots of smaller files – but this is still pretty impressive.
Certainly these are quick speeds and we are fairly impressed with the data transfer rate via USB 3.0. The data transfer rate via Gigabit Ethernet is still more than capable of streaming HD movies, from a computer or other network attached storage.
