Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what I wanted and packed with features that I am still working on. With several old and new machines and laptops this has made an idea place of all to sit and be accessed. It has a lot going for it and I bought it based on a good review in a PC magazine, they were not wrong. 08 August 2014

I have had issues before with equipment not meeting advertising performance or at least not without extensive OS tuning etc.

Can you tell me:
1. What OS you used to achieve this performance?
2. Did you have to make any custom tweaks? e.g. large packets or registry tweaks.

Thanks!
