Do No Buy This Short-Lived Drive

C. S. Jennings "children's illustrator & author", Amazon
15 July 2015
  • Summary: I have owned a series of external drives over the years. (As my data amount increases, I need more storage.) Among all of the drives I've owned, I've never had one die on me. This drive lasted less than two years and then died, taking my precious data with it. (Thank the maker for Time Machine.

Crazy fast!!!

  • Summary: Installation was as simple as plugging in the drive and hooking up a USB cable. After about 30 seconds my drive was ready to use. After I installed the included TruboBooster software, transferring files was blazingly fast. I transfered 32gb in a matter of minutes.

With product like this, just like it's namesake, BUFFALO will soon go extinct.

Fast but not Reliable

Bryan Spaulding, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: Purchased two units new in August 2013. One unit failed in the first few months of operation and the other unit failed several months after the first. Both were replaced by the factory in an easy process. Then the two replacement units eventually failed in almost the same timeline as the first two.
