So do you. The source and target file systems don't particularly matter to transfer speeds. However, Samba is just reverse engineered from Microsoft technology and performance is pretty crappy particularly on old versions.

It's still an OS. It's a very customized/cut-down *nix based distribution geared towards NAS duties and it might work crappy for you but it's still an OS, nonetheless. You can make FreeNAS do more but that would probably require installing packages via command line, etc.

FYI, FreeNAS is FreeBSD based, not linux based.

Why would you throw so much money into a FreeNAS box OP?
I just threw together some old Dell hardware and made it a FreeNAS box & it performs just fine.

Ok nit pick if you want.... it is an OS... The source and target file systems do matter.... that is called overhead. Your file will take longer to be available from the time you copy it until it is done copying with freenas (say it anyway you want). You can say that that isn't part of the transfer rate but to me, the total time it takes to copy over and be useable again is important. I used FreeNAS for years and it was cool, but slow and when FreeNAS craps out, i hope you have a back up... 'cause your stuff be gone....
i'm so much happier with my ubuntu server. It is command line only and have the 2 gigabit nics bonded (called teaming in windows). Transfer rates or as i call it "being able to use the file after copying" is much, much faster.

@mbudden: Exactly.... it works fine on low end hardware and i'm sorry to all who claim different, but it isn't gonna get much faster (or any faster) with higher end hardware.
@XyXyll: Yes true, development was halted and was going to go to Debian based but that was changed and iXsystems agreed to continue development (according to "what i've read"..heh,heh)

You guys were SUPER HELPFUL!!
I have to agree that is a good processor for the job it is being used for.
