Summary: I can honestly say, this is one of the single most useless pieces of kit I have bought. Slow beyond belief, constantly loses connection, causes huge amount of problems with software processing. DON'T BUY IT! EVER!!
Excerpt: Just got this last Friday. I set it up to be a RAID one & am going to use it to store family photos, documents & music. I plan on setting up so that I can share pictures with other family members & friends. I also will use it as an iTunes Server too.
Summary: Love this guy. I am running RAID 1 with 2, 3gig drives. I only use this as a media server. My TV sees it immediately. I have not experienced any trouble with buffering or anything when watching movies. Glad I picked this up.
Good price, decent speed, USB performance and support is horrible

Summary: I do like this unit. The xfer speeds on my LAN are better than the Nasduo v1 I had for years and years (doesn't look NEAR as nice tho). My Nasduo started disappearing from everything except Raidar, and after many, many hours of trouble shooting, drive swapping, etc, I gave up. I put the same two 2tb drives in the linkstation, and it just works. Now, the huge downfall of this unit for me after about 2 weeks of owning it, is the horrible USB support.
Summary: I used to use Microsoft Home Server 2005 but upgrading my server was going to be costly. The price of the new OS alone was prompting me to just test out a NAS enclosure. Didn't know if trans-coding video was an issue but seems to be fine with the HTPC wireless connection around the house. I'm running an AppleTV, HTPC, OUYA and Amazon TV with XBMC side loaded and all runs great. I'll order another one just to add more storage.
Summary: I bought this mainly to back up my CD collection.I use a MACbook Pro.I'm competent,but found the whole set up complicated.The manual has not been well thought out - the username and password for the device don't appear until over half way through, by which time I'd already contacted Buffalo Support twice.I found the user interface clunky and non inuitive.It might be the Mac but I found that tracks went missing during transfer and some lost their tags/track info etc.which...
Summary: I have two computers on my primary network and wanted an inexpensive yet reliable NAS to do a backup image for both machines, and regular document backups. There are many options in the way of a NAS. This one fit the bill for my particular purpose. The NovaBackup software that came with it is fairly intuitive and feature rich.
Summary: I have inherited three Buffalo Linkstations, This one in particular is going to the recycle center at my earliest convenience. We're running a CAT6 GB environment yet this device barely offers a 6MBps service. Worst, it came with Seagate 2TB drives which are failing after barely a year in service. I had to perform a RAID scan the other day and the device was completely unresponsive for three days.
Instructions are a little difficult, but a good product

Summary: Overall, a very good product and comes with a nice online interface for remote access. I did have some trouble removing the front faceplate to install the hard drives as the instructions are not very clear.
