Nextodi 2700 - slow USB-connexion

I just bought a Nextodi 2700.
I use this drive to backup SDHC-cards but also to backup my PC at home.
I'm surprised to see that the USB-speed is really slow compared with my old VOSONIC XS-DRIVE PRO VP300 (to backup files from my PC on the Nexto).
It looks like the very small files (some Kb) take a long time to be copied.
Is it a consequence of the H/W-Verifiy function?
Could the transfer speed from PC to Nexto be higher if I would use an eSata connexion?

If you use eSATA connection, it shall be more than 40MB/s.
For USB connection, it should be at least 25MB/s with proper PC connection. It means, copying 1GB to PC through USB takes about 1 minute.
Connect USB cable to the back side of PC. Front side USB port is not good for high speed USB device.
Also check your USB cable.

Also, to get high speed USB your computer needs to be USB 2.0 and not USB 1.1.
