True I guess, on a lightly loaded network.

It's just getting pretty stupid. "Gigabit" network can't actually 
approach that speed, USB can't come close to the advertised speed, 
"54Mhz." wireless can't come close to that...

Why can't manufacturers tell the truth about hardware capabilities?

I guess once one outfit starts lying and getting away with it all the 
rest have to follow suit or get "out marketed".
