Invest in bricks

Maxum "Maxum Xaxum, LLC", Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Terrible. This thing was expensive, we did get a discount so it was bought around $600. Unfortunately, we bought this product based on Huntington Technologies (Southfield, Mi) suggestion, and it...along with a other few electronic devices suggested by them failed or just weren't the right fit for our company. On to the buffalo... From day one, for the price...this device wasn't great. The interface was convoluted and clunky, but it seemed to function.

It has many great features that we don't use like DLNA

amanda griffin, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • Summary: This device is simple to use, reliable, and works with all of our Devices with ease. Very quiet fan allows me to place by my desk. Speeds are descent, we use Western Digital black 1TB drives in raid 1. Our Macs backup via timemachine without issue so no more portable hd now that it runs on the network. It has many great features that we don't use like DLNA, Bittorrent, web access, etc all built in.

One of the Best Additions to a Home Network

Carl Nagy, Amazon
30 December 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this device to create a shared network drive for our home computers. Has been great for that. All our Windows computers map "My Documents" to this drive so that documents created on one computer can be accessed on any other computer. Pros: Has worked flawlessly for years. Starts up automatically when first computer boots up, and shuts down automatically when last computer shuts down. (Requires installation of software on computer.

Six weeks of use and I have a new paperweight.

D. Norman, Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: If I could give this thing zero stars, I would. 6 weeks after purchase it crashed and I lost all of my data. It's giving me an emergency message to update the firmware because the firmware is corrupt, but when I go to update it, it says the most current firmware is installed. Now I'm forced to buy software to recover my data or install Ubuntu on my laptop to recover my data so it won't be a total loss.

Don't use for sensitive data

Brian R. Schuster "The Engineer", Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: 1.5 years in and it's dead. It's past warranty so I'm just out of luck. The setup was easy, the interface was functional but clunky. The transfer speeds were pretty good at around 50MB/s. Up to 72MB/s for short bursts. The 18 months or I got out of this makes it a bad buy, when I replace this I'll just spend a bit more on a higher quality product. Retrieving all the data from this thing was a time consuming and frustrating process, as it always is.

Very satisfied. Very reliable

knightdragon89, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Very satisfied. Very reliable. I have several, some backing up others. I found out the hard way that large numbers of drives in one enclosure does not make for a very good backup strategy. If the enclosure fries, that's it, regardless of the condition of the drives. So far, having multiple of these units have proven to be a better solution.
