Summary: Two years into use and this NAS turns out to be defective. I bought this NAS back in February 2013. The feature set is good, and the set up not terribly difficult for a non-techie. But starting a few months ago, the unit stopped appearing on my home network.
Summary: DO NOT BUY!!!!! Does NOT work in RAID 1. Buffalo blames this on firmware. Isn't that their job to give us working software!?!?!? In other words you cannot mirror your data. For the price of this you could more cheaply get 6TB stand alone. The point of the device is to replicate and run in RAID 1!
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..
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.
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.
Summary: Pros: Raid 1, Network attached, small size. Cons: Raid controller failed within 1 month. Buffalo replaced a Hard drive after a week of troubleshooting. Less than a month after replacement of the HD the unit failed again and Buffallo sent out a new Revision 3 unit.
Summary: In the past I had been buying the cheap Linkstations with only one drive and they seemed to last about 14-18 months before they gave up and fired themselves. Luckily I am quite good at keeping a second back up.
Summary: Would not recommend to others. Very disappointed.
Cons: Failed after 1 month. Buffalo Tech support will not respond. Tried everything I could find online to fix. Stuck in Emergency mode. Lost a brand new 3TB drive. Could not recover even with new drive and firmware reinstalled. $300 wasted and no help available.
Pros: Stores files. Works with SMB/CIFS, can join a domain.
Cons: I'm having a hard time finding a use for this device. It has no support for r-sync, iscsi or anything else I would need a NAS to support. Sure you can hack the firmware and turn these features on, but I don't need/want that level of effort for a $120 device. Look elsewhere if you need any other f...
