    Many thanks Romman, great test !!
    Now we know that ext4 will increase performances also in SataII box.

    The theoretical limit of the SATA II is 384 MB/s then the benefits of the bus SATA3 only be obtained with a solid state drive.
    With the normal hard drives there are not differences in performance between SATA2 and SATA3 box.

    Yes it's true.
    Anyway solo2 and duo2 seems to have better performances in hdd managment.

    Also the old Vu+ models (DUO-UNO-ULTIMO) have the SATAII bus, so if you use a normal disk (SATA2 o SATA3 NOT SSD) the performance will be the same as the SOLO2-DUO2.

    But to take advantage of the SATA3 speed necessarily need a solid state drive.

    No the hdd performances are better in solo2 and duo2 and much better on a desktop Pc.
    The hdd performances depend from many variables and the hardware of Duo2 and Solo2 is more powerful than previous models.

    The meaning of all your figures is uncertain. To test a SSD you should better use AS SSD Benchmark program for Windows.

    Filesystems differences:
    ext3: /dev/sda1 on /media/hdd type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=continue,barrier=1,data=writeback)
    ext4: /dev/sda1 on /media/hdd type ext4 (rw,relatime,barrier=1,data=ordered)

    Conversion Ext3-To-Ext4
    Unable to convert internal hdd, because internal command tune2fs (part of busybox) does not have implemented necessary features. Backup recordings and do hdd inicialization and re-mount. Ext4 preformance is better as Ext3.
