Summary: The Big Disk delivered acceptable speeds, but not anything to cheer about. The device lies squarely in third place in this roundup of four, but speeds are irrelevant if you can’t transfer files to or from the device using Network Neighborhood. Since many network boxes can connect just fine 100 percent of the time, we believe the Big Disk has a Big Fault.
Pros: If you drag files to the folders, they copy over, giving you a speedy network backup solution.
Cons: Where to begin? You'll spend as much time transferring files as you will trying to get the Ethernet Big Disk to work.
