From the Qnap site under Software Spec:

Dual Gigabit NICs with Jumbo Frame
Multi-IP Settings
Port Trunking/NIC Teaming (Modes: Balance-rr, Active Backup, Balance XOR, Broadcast, IEEE 802.3ad/Link Aggregation, Balance-tlb and Balance-alb)

BTW: This is a screenshot of the BMD Speed Test run from our iMac (core 2 duo with jumbo) taken while another editor is working on an FCP project on the same server, the Thecus N7700Pro. Don't know what this proves, but we really don't have any dropped frame issues, even when we have the same project open on two machines. I will admit that even though we may have 3 or even 4 computers connected to the server at the same time, we rarely would work on a project from more than 2 machines at the same time:

With the Qnap and link aggregation, I'm guessing we would get even better throughput.
