I must say that I'm very pleased with the V4 and the latest firmware.
Mostly all is working nicely.
The screen size of 960x540 is OK for me, though some applications usability could gain from a higher screen size.
Many games and applications work nicely.

The V4Net driver though seems to be a bit unstable. I use a AmigaOS 3 ROM with a custom build and collected OS with Roadshow. DHCP works alright. I have this all startup on boot. But download is slow with speeds ranging from a few kB to ~500kB with a lot of variation. Sometimes the V4Net driver crashes.
Upload speed seems to be able to use the full bandwidth and is much higher than download.

Hallo Manfred,
This doesn't sound right.
With network benchmark we get over 1 MB/sec .. nearly 2 MB/sec
I like to help you test this...
Are you aware that we also have a live online channel where we provide support?
In my experience this live channel makes debug much faster and easier.
Are you on our discord channel?
