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.

Great NAS Solution as File and Media Storage and Server

Carsten Cumbrowski, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I also have the LinkStation Live model, which is a bit cheaper and as some flaws that I was not very happy about. The Pro Duo does not have the same flaws like its sister and also has a few additional features, such as the Media Server. The Media Server feature was a positive surprise for me and something I am going to play around with more. The setup was easy, even within my not so simple network environment. Administration was simple and straight forward as well.

Fast and quiet

Alan R., Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I replaced an old Snapserver with this guy. I changed the RAID settings to disk mirroring of 500GB -- the default was RAID0 giving 1TB of storage. Pros: * Quiet, very quiet. * Fast. However, I'm not running videos or other really large files. Music, pictures, and office files mostly. I have not noticed any slowness compared to local drives. My network is 100Mbps; it should even be faster if running 1000. * FTP server over the internet.

Easy set up and whisper-quiet operation

P. McAllister, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I researched NAS options and read countless reviews on various products for months before taking the plunge and buying this device. I was somewhat apprehensive about what might be involved with the technical setup. I am somewhat tech-savvy, but by no means an IT expert. I wanted a NAS that I could configure to support two computers via a Linksys router. Due to limited desk space, I was forced to place this unit right beside me rather than across the room as I had hoped.

Large storage with small footprint

SCUBAsabre, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: What a little trooper. My husband and I call it the baby-buffalo as it is tiny (roughly 5" x 3.5" x 8") so has a tiny foot print that is only limited by the size of the drives you select. We use this to RAID backup our home network of data, photos, music and movies. So far it's working like a champ (6-months). We access it via an iPad to play music on a tower speaker on the patio without having to move media around.

Great basic NAS

Godwin, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: This is a reliable, basic NAS storage. Its not very fast, but gives me a lot of storage for my movies. I have had this for a very very long time now (over 2 years now) and its on 24x7. I queue movie downloads via the torrent client in it, and my XBMC setup streams music/movies from it over the network. Its small and quiet, I plugged it in, set it up and forgot about it. I do run firmware upgrades once in a while.

Great features, good price

Jim Valerio, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this because years ago I bought a Buffalo Linkstation for a home backup server for our computers, and it has worked flawlessly all this time. So now we need more space and an automated backup solution. I am hopeful the reliability is a good now as it was when I previously bought it. Time will tell. I love the ease-of-use of the NAS configuration. Plug it in and use a browswer to configure.

great storage for little money

Andrey Kravchenko, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought because I needed a storage device with gigabit interface to see HD movies on my TV and increase the speed of file sharing. You also need gigabit router. I recommend it.
