  • Summary: No tech support, Buffalo agents know nothing and just take your info. A tech is supposed to call you back and never does.

No tech support, second one also defective, junk

  • Summary: Update, after the first one was left unplugged for a day, the battery was dead. After charging until the battery light turned green (overnight), the wifi light would not illuminate. And when I unplugged the drive from the charger, the drive was dead. I returned the drive for a replacement. The replacement cam yesterday. I let it charge overnight. The wifi light is not lit. The drive is recognized by my MacBook Pro but not in Disk Utility. I reset the drive.

  • Excerpt: Super slick design, though it is a bit bigger than most of my 1TB drives, but it doesn't bother me. Very fast. Very happy with it.
