I have two Buffalo drives and they do the job. No problems.

Summary: .A good Desktop hard drive. I have one. It holds a world of information. I bought it for good friends that will be putting many slides of the trips they took around the world. The may need another one in the future to hold all the pictures they have taken.
Summary: I got this several years ago to help provide some redundancy to my backups. Hard drives are poor backup devices but you do what you have to do. It worked great and I traveled with it quite a bit.
Summary: So far this device has performed without issue. I bought it because it has so many interface options. The prices doubled during the HDD shortage last year preventing me from buying another one. However, the prices have come back down. I think it came with some backup software that I did not like.
Summary: The first time I used this drive I thought, wow, that is loud. That's gonna take some getting used to. Three months later, I'm still not used to it. Time to move on. When the drive powers up there's a nauseating, explosive whine like a puppy being kicked. Still makes me jump.
Summary: Wow, I am so surprised that so many people have had issues with their version of this drive :( I've had my 1TB unit for about 4 years now and I love the thing...I also love the fact that it has FW 400, USB 2 and FW 800 all together (I have some older equipment).
Summary: Bought this drive from Fry's Electronics thinking I was getting a great deal for a 1TB Firewire 800 external HDD, boy was I wrong! This drive after less than a year would constantly choose not to show up as readable on any of my macs.
Summary: When starting up, it makes lots of noise. Afterwards, it makes a continuous humming noise. This at 10cm away. When you are 1.5 meters away, its not audible, and when a TV or PC sound is running, the drive noise fades away into the background. Regarding the design, its really beautiful.
Summary: This is my first Amazon product review and the only reason I'm writing this is because I hope to warn people away from this terrible product! I bought four of these drives and they all failed! And failed quickly.
