    When downloading a file at high speeds, it seems the system becomes a little less responsive. Assuming the IO is hogging resources. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I did notice this the other night when downloaded a 2 GB file.

    When syncing DropBox it was very fast for maybe 20 minutes and it then slowed way down. Nothing I could do would speed it up except stop syncing and wait a while, at which point it would download quickly again only to drop in speed 15 minutes later.

    I am convinced the MB was throttling itself. It took over night to sync all of my neighbors files where it should have been done in a couple of hours at the most.
