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 . (No, the drive is not connected to my computer when checking for wifi) There is either a battery or a charging problem with these d...
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.
Summary: I work in customer support for a software development company so I'm pretty technical, but this thing is the hardest to configure. I still cannot get it to work. It took me hours to figure out how to get the files from my laptop to the ministation and once I did, i tried to play them on my ipad and...
worse materials and outright lying in their advertising

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.
Summary: Story time: I bought this drive for a family member so he could perform time machine backups to make sure his macbook pro was backed up. I noticed it was a well built drive and seemed to have decent speeds.
Summary: Dont store any valuable data on these they are junk. I had to return the first.HD-PCT1U2/BK because it stopped working. In return they sent a refurbished one which died with no warrantee and most of my important data. Dont trust these with anything valuable.

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.
