A little risky for backup, a little slow for performance

FipC, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Not getting the concept of this product. It is fast.

Ok..... After the 3rd one.

Tim Thames, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Purchased the Buffalo Drive Station which had great reviews. Received the 1st one...did not work. Sent the first one back & ordered another. The 2nd one did not work. Called the company & was told it may have been a bad batch & something the engineers will need to look at.

Did not work to clone another drive using Macrium Reflect

Cathleen C, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: I had intended to use this drive to clone another drive (running win 7). When I tried to clone the drive to the Buffalo 3T, I received an incompatability message dealing with sector sizes, source 512 v target 4096. This is a non-supported situation.

Watch out for 0x8078002A

CJL "CJL", Amazon

  • Summary: I am sure this is a good product and it is top rated, but I am writing to alert consumers to compatibility issues (hence the 3 star rating from me). I wanted this external hard drive for my aging Dell computer with Windows 7. The PC works well in every other respect.
