Basic Network storage only.

Summary: For really basic home NAS, this is we decent choice. However, the unit is a bit finicky. The buffalo OS works but too basic in telling you what is going on with the unit. The. One thing I did like about it is that it is compact and quiet.
Excerpt: This product is used for storage and backup. Setup is simple and fast, without problems. The quick manual delivered with the package is too simple for an entire setup. You have to downlaod the manual on Buffalo website to discover how this item is powerful and manage a complete setup.
Summary: This unit's USB ports will not recognize any USB hard drive that isn't Buffalo. On their own support forum, the topic "LS421DE cannot mount USB hard disk!" has 4,233 views at the time of this review (Fri, May 29th, 2015).
Excerpt: I purchased my Buffalo 4TB Drive over a year ago from B&H. I have a lot of large files from my Nikon D800 and wanted to be able to safely store my pictures as well as having them available securely on my home network. A NAS Storage was the answer.

Summary: AMAZING NAS BUT GET IT FROM MICROCENTER ITS 20.00 CHEAPER PULLING 60mb/sec with this nas. Thats right MB's & not mb's. Its advertised that you're able to pull 80 megs,but im pulling 60 megs consistently, which is about 20% within range because you get up to 80 MEGS, meaning 80 megs is the most you...
Summary: My wife and I have owned many Buffalo products over the years and when I decided to by my own network storage device,,, it just made sense to me to get one from Buffalo. Man do I regret that. Let me say that I have called their tech support 4 times. Each time,, got right in,, no wait. great I say.
Summary: I like this product. Setup was a little confusing though. Manual could be a whole lot better. - once setup works as expected - lookup reviews online they are pretty accurate. - Ended up putting in to WD drives hint - look up other reviews posted to use green drives *thank you* all previous posters.
Summary: If your looking for fast performance then you'll have to pay more and get a dual processor but if your needs are basic storage and retrieval then You'll love it as much as we do. We had a Segregate that was a dog and returned it. We also have a fast dual core Qnap.
Pros: The Nas set up was easy and flawless. I have to say they have the best Tech Support I've ever experienced in the computer product world. Every call answered and handled fast. I called to better understand some of the system functions.
Cons: The processor in this unit is not the fastest but it's plenty fast for file storage and retrieval. We use it in a 2-user environment with Photoshop editing.
