Easy to install

Fred B. Bookhardt, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: Very fast and easy to install.By the time you've finished installing it, it has already copied your hard drive. I also copied an old external hard drive to another Buffalo. So much smaller and easy to carry.

Never worked

Penny S. from N.Y., Amazon
1 September 2013
  • Summary: Aside from not receiving any cord with it and had to order one (no biggie) by the time I realized that the whole hard drive didn't turn on, my warranty was expired. I called a techno geek to figure out if it was on my part I couldn't get it to work- he said no, he took it apart, it was already missing one screw from the housing unit and that screw hole thread was stripped.

Look Elsewhere for Long-Term Storage!

Amazon Customer "Purestar", Amazon
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Buffalo MiniStation Stealth 500 GB USB 2 through Amazon in summer 2011. I loved it. The software was cool, the drive is small, sleek and silent. I filled it with back-up's of my photos. For the past year at least, I've hardly turned it on, considering it an archive for preserving files as it was basically full.

Not as advertised or incorrect information in description

James Morningstar, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: I found thyis while specificly looking for a USB hard drive that said preformatted FAT32, to use for backup of game console data. The description says that these are FAT32 preformatted, but they are NTFS like most others and not compatible with game consoles and older (not NTFS) PCs. This hard drive is also preloaded with software which I find to be useless and unwanted "clutterware".

BUFFALO MiniStation Stealth 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive - HD...

Dan M, Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: Photography is what I do. So keeping my digital photos in a safe place is very important to me. I have used zip drives, cds, and dvds. But you still had to store the hard copies. So I went to a online service that backed up my photos every day. Guess what, they went down and is not fixed after 7 weeks. So I started to buy more external hard drives so I can make backups of my backups. I have a Iomega 160 GB, WD Passport 1T, and Buffalo MiniStation Stealth 500 GB.
