I don't know. Some possibilities:
1) They measured disk transfer speeds directly on the box, not over
2) They measured speed on a v.2 box that (I can only guess) has 1Gb/s
Ethernet, and they used a 1Gb/s network connection.
I could be overlooking something (corrections welcome!), but you can't
get more than 100Mb/s out of a 100-BaseT network!
