Neither the first or the replacement will charge

David F., Newegg
7 December 2014
  • Summary: No tech support, Buffalo agents know nothing and just take your info. A tech is supposed to call you back and never does.
  • Pros: None, they don't work. After charging for two days, the wifi light never comes on and the charge light goes back to red.
  • Cons: These drives seem like such a great idea, if they only worked. They will not hold a charge and the wifi light never comes on and the drive's network is not visible .

worse materials and outright lying in their advertising

R. Suzuki, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: DON'T believe that this thing can take a 2m drop!! I accidentally dropped mine a mere **1 foot** and the thing COMPLETELY died. The cable won't go into the slot without effort now and I can't access any of my data even when I get the USB cable plugged in.

Dead unit, manufacturer is unresponsive while unit still under warranty

S. Strand "Johnny Regular Boy", Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased 3 of these at one time on June 15, 2013, and put all of them to use in (2) client and (1) showroom audio/video system applications. One has worked great so far (6 months, no issues). Another had a bad USB cable supplied by the manufacturer, which I replaced, and have had no issues since.
