Wow. What the hell am I doing then? I have a 100MBit connection and I can't max 2MB/s. It usually idles to about 1.5MB/s though. I stopped using FTP and just plug my hard drive into my PC and transfer manually and get about 25MB/s using USB2.0.
Here's my experience:
Hardware: Cat5e cables between PS3 Slim 250gb with stock HDD, Linux box and Win7 Box - gigabit switch tying it all.
Speeds with multiman ps3serv, with the ps3 grabbing from Win7 box: 1-6mb/s -- Meh
Speeds with multiman ftp: sending from win7 tp ps3 with Filezilla, 3 paralel transfers at once: total speed ~20mb/s -- Meh
Slightly better results with blackbox / linux. But not much. Thing is found out is that enabling paralel transfers slows things down considerably.
So I turned it off:
Speeds with blackbox ftp: sending from linux box with shell lftp: 1 transfers: ~80 - 90 mb/s -- Whoa!
Multiman ftp was about 50-60mbs from linux, and slightly slower with win7.
So to sum up my the tests, for my kit, it boiled down to:
- Blackbox is faster than multiman (shame really, cuz I frigging would have multiman's author's babies, but kudos to blackbox's author)
- Sending from lftp from linux is slightly better than from win7. Maybe ext4 is just better than NTFS, or linux networking stack is speedier.
- Do not use paralel transfers at all. It kills the total speed.
- pserv doesn't seemed to recognize the gigabit stack at all.
In the end, the theoretical max speed for a giagbit setup is 128mb/s. Chalk about 10% for overhead and noise (if you don\'t diffle with datagram sizes) and a more realistic 115ish mb/s. That is what I get with nfs between my linux boxes. With samba between the linux box and the win I peek at abround 105mb, wich is somewhat expected.
So, 80-90ish mb/s ftp considering that the cable I used is pretty teared up and the hdd was probably about to burst into flames, is pretty damn awesome.I Transfered Uncharted 2 (22gb) in less than 5 mins.

What if you don't ftp to the internal ps3 hd , but to an external attached one ? (fat32)
What speeds do you get then ?
what is the point of that? isnt the only reason to have an external drive is so you can just copy the files to it directly from your computer via usb and not deal with ftp at all?

To external drive :
Latest multiman 2.0 still doing 1.5mbyte/s
Latest openps3ftp 2.2 doing 2.5mbyte/s
To Internal drive gives normal gigabit speeds .
Ftp programs but more important, drivers on the ps3 need to be optimized to speed up transfer speed to external drives ..
Someone may try it then share of you ,it also pretty good!

those of you who are getting shit speeds, it is because of your router. I was getting slow speeds (like 5-8mbps) and when i took my router out of the equation via THIS GUIDE my ps3 gets a steady 32mbps+, you dont even need a crossover cable since the ps3's ethernet card can compensate for this. my router only had 10/100mbit ports so it was slowing the connection down, the next time i get a router i will definitely make sure it is gigabit capable.
depend on your internet speed lol
