    Hi All. We have been using many Ki Pro decks for some time now but there always seems to be disagreements as to how long it takes to transfer files off the KiStore onto another external FW drive. Allowing for most new Mac Book Pro laptops to be more than capable of handling with ease the FW800 max speeds via it’s bus, I tell my clients to allow 30 mins per 100GB of data as a realistic transfer speed. If you do the maths allowing FW to run at 780Mbps it should be possible to do 100GB in under 18 mins but it just does not seem to work like that! I would really appreciate anybodies comments as to the sort speeds they have achieved. Many thanks Phil.

    We have a similar issue. Our experience is that 350 GB of KiStor content takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to copy to another firewire 800 device. Copy time to Mac internal HD is considerably quicker, so the FW800 appears to be the bottleneck
