Summary: It's a very inexpensive NAS solution for home that works. Very slow write with two 5400 RPM WD RED 3TB drives in RAID1 mirror. About 35-40MB/s over 1 gigabit ethernet. These drives should do at least twice that despite being 5400 RPM and 1 gig ethernet should do around 100-110MB/s after overhead.
Summary: It's a shame Buffalo can't be consistent with their compatibilities across their product line.
Pros: Low cost network storage
Cons: Limited Windows functionality. If you use a usb connected drive for backup, be aware that you can not connect that drive (if the NAS fails) to a Windows machine to retrieve your data. It does not use a file system that works in Windows. Also, if you use RoboCopy (built into Windows) for backup, i...
Cons: I am on my second one of these drives. Both have failed in a little over a little over one year of use. I purchased the extended warranty on the second unit and now it appears that I am getting the run around to replace it.
Summary: Some sort of status of RAID sync process/progress would be invaluable instead of guessing. The product overall reflects its low-cost in the lack of features and true anywhere-on-the-web-access.
Pros: Configuration was relatively easy in as much as it is generally counter- intuitive.
Cons: Web access is not as easy as is implied. The fact is they require port 9000 which is blocked in many circumstances rendering the type of "anywhere over the web access" as a pipe dream.
Summary: If you are looking for a quick and dirty way to setup a NAS for some serious storage, this isn't a bad device. It has some redeeming features but for the most part it's a security nightmare waiting to happen.
Pros: Easy setup and administration. Small footprint, whisper quiet. It works with little trouble and stores my data well.
Cons: Not able to protect data at rest with any level of encryption on the device itself. Contacted support and they said this is a limitation since it's for home/small business use. Sorry, encryption in 2014 should be for all ,not just enterprise products. For this reason I took off 1 egg. External ne...
Summary: Works great with Windows and Apple. Doesn't work via SMB scan from Konica BizHub-362 to Nas Drive. Also by default Buffalo ships the unit using a Radio 0 not a Raid 1 must reconfigure Raid or not.
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.
Summary: I decided to keep this product with the following reservations: Pros: Reasonably priced Web interface & USB interface for management Small size. Looks and feels well built/sturdy A good amount of features Cons: Web interface is choppy and slow (load times lag/can be cumbersome to some folks) Does...
Summary: When receiving, the software was outdated, pretty typical you say. I needed help in discerning the serial number of the unit, which is required to download some required files from their website.Though, I do have to say the telephone support was excellent and stayed with me through every step of the...
