I am transfering between my to "old" (2007-2008) PCs with over 90MBytes /sec, that nearly 900mbits.

I'm sure the needle would move very close to the top.

Your math is horrible.

90 MBytes/sec = 720 Mbits/sec = 0.703 Gbits/sec

Classy. I for one really like the retro-analog designs, but it would be nice if they scaled one down for internet levels of bandwithd.

Go take a class in computing and stop using Google.

I guess you haven't done either. Yes, 1byte=8bits but there is something called 'overhead' in almost every kind of data transmission. That means that out of the 1Gbps 'moving' in the cable some are user data and some are protocol data. When you observe a copy progress, that only reports the user data. Ethernet protocol effective throughput is approximately 70%. Therefore a 90MB/s user data transfer is around 0.7Gbps (as user Regnar-Kon mentioned above) which is maxing out the effective throughput of a 1Gbps connection.

Why would one need to go to NASA or a "secret government facility" to access a gigabit network? They're actually quite common in the home anymore.

I have gigabit lan here at home(i would say it is very common now). But, with this thing being software driven over usb and not an actual hardware device that I would save connect between a system and network or 2 switches. I would have to pass on it. Still does look cool.

The advantage to this software device would be it can easily scale to internet speeds if that is what you want to use it for.

I'd like to see a toned down version of this (100mbit instead of 1gbit) so I can monitor the bandwidth I'm getting from my ISP in real time...with an old school analog meter.
