    Seagate BlackArmor

    I've had my ReadyNAS NV+ for a while, and it's fairly slow and noisy, and the interface to LMS is painfully slow (and yes, I've reduced the interface to the bare minimum). I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the Seagate BlackArmor NAS products. Are they any faster/quieter?

    I don't have experience with Seagate BlackArmor, but thought it worth pointing out that the LMS web interface is surprisingly demanding of server resources, which is why it's so slow on an underpowered server. A NAS upgrade is fine, but you could also get a much faster interface by using _any_ of the other available SB interfaces, including, depending on your SB model(s): infrared remote, SB Controller, iDevice, Android device, SB front panel controls.
