Slow Access to File Directory

When I access my NAS through my LAN on my Mac (selecting from Finder not DSM portal), there is a noticeable lag until files show in Finder.  I currently have 3 x 3TB WD Reds in Synology’s SHR (RAID 5 equivalent). DSM is loaded on a USB 3.0 thumb drive connected to a USB 3.0 port. Gigabit connection. Any idea what’s going on?

CPU:  Intel i3-4170
Motherboard:  GIGABYTE GA-H97N-WIFI
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 4GB 1600MHz DDR3
HDDs: WD Red 3TB x 3
USB Drive: SanDisk Ultra Fit 16GB USB 3.0

Are you still having this issue?
Are you using a switch or are you plugged directly into a router?

Other than that try running a check on your disks. I have heard that some have SMART status showing “OK” but then they run a full scan and there is an issue which is making things run slow.
