LinkStation 421 Raid 1 3TB

F. Emery, Amazon
5 days ago
  • Summary: I assembled the Link Station 421 easily using 2 WD Red NAS 3TB drives and reconfigured them to be Raid 1. Be aware that the time to do this is about 10 hours per terabyte. I plan to back-up my three computers to this NAS and then back-up the NAS monthly to one of two 3TB hard disks; storing these sequentially in our bank safety-deposit box as off site storage. My trouble has been "finding" the 3TB hard drives.

This device is NOT plug and play. If you have data on your hard drives, it will get WIPED CLEAN!!

  • Summary: I'm pretty tech savvy and was really hopeful that I would have a good experience despite all the bad reviews but unfortunately, I too have had a bad experience with this Buffalo LinkStation product. My previous iOmega enclosure failed after 7 years and I was purchasing this enclosure as a replacement. The two HDDs were still good and I was expecting to just plug and play the HDDs into the new Buffalo enclosure.

  • Excerpt: Only issue I had was viewing the directories and folders from ie. But used shortcuts that I dragged into the root folder as a work around. USB drive worked as advertised too. Not like the older Buffalo LS-120 I have that the USB drive is not found by Buffalo Liknstation.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy Setup, Fast, Quiet

Buy it as a simple dual drive, good value NAS, ignore the USB ports and be aware that web access may take effort to set up

  • Summary: The good news is that this is good value for money, is easy to set up in a basic form, and works well as a relatively fast NAS. Because its from a big brand these is also quite a lot of support online and discussions. The bad news is that like others I've had problems with getting the USB drives to recognize any form of external HD - tried Seagate, Western Digital, and a Plextor SSD on a Plextor SATA to USB 3 adapter (apparently Buffalo external drives work).

  • Summary: Been with this for about 6 months now, and still loving it. I stream all my media from it, save all my documents to it. At the time I am using the usb device server function for my laser printer and it is working nicely. I recommend this highly.

Great for Backup and DLNA Streaming

Chris, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: This device pretty highly ranked among affordable NASs on a popular router ranking site. We were looking for a solution that wouldn't break the bank and settled on this one. With drives, the setup came in at around $300, which is lower than the cost of some empty NASs. We use this as one of our backups for home movies. I only really cared about using it to back up files, but we actually use the DLNA server functionality a lot.

A Nice Affordable NAS

  • Summary: This is a very affordable NAS. There's of other brands of NAS out there like, Synology, Qnap, Drobo, but they are higher priced. It works fine with my Macbook Pro, iPads.
