Performance indicators? How to confirm the performance?

I'm getting very concerned by the speed of copy/transfer files to and from the Media Hub.  I bought it mainly as a NAS, but maybe it was my mistake, I thought not performance would be as slow as it sounds.   I've seen the other comments on the performance, some answers have been pointing users to check their networks.  I would like to know if there are some points of reference which can be published so that we can compare against them.  Publish the test script and the results, then we can run the same tests and compare the results.  I can withdraw from my network and connect directly to a switch isolated for testing if necessary, but I'd rather not have to disconnect things and go through that effort if I can test everything first and see how far off I am standard expectation.

If I can at least know what the performance of the target for this type of operation, it would help me to decide if I should invest several times in this or switch to a dedicated NAS.

In addition, one of the things that I suspect a little is the Twonky Media scanning server.  I have it turned off, but have not yet restarted to confirm that I am in the middle of a great copy that looks like it's going to be two days.  Are there other parameters of Twonky can I disable in order to minimize its impact, or can I disable Twonky completely?
