Meh this rather sucks.
Perhaps USB-attached magnetic disk or USB-attached SSD would help with USB performance.

I unfortunately don't have any of those, nor really the money to get one. I'll see whether NetBSD does better once I can manage a download of that size again (maybe early next month or so), but if it doesn't I guess I'll have to revert to Linux again...

Sometimes I've installed NetBSD (often a beta version) on a USB flash drive for easy testing on several computers. These are all older machines, 2000 --- 2011 vintage. I can report that there are often quite noticeable delays when bigger things need to be read off the drive. But give it a try when you can as YMMV.
