Worked fine for exactly one year then died

Nhatman, Amazon
13 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive to store all of my kids' movies so we can access them from anywhere in our house via DLNA. We would access it maybe 3-4 times a week, which isn't much at all. I had about 1TB worth of movies on it that I had ripped from the DVDs that we owned. Then almost exactly one year after buying this drive, it started to have problems connecting to the network. Then just recently, it went into Emergency Mode, whatever the hell that is.

Not happy

Henderson Enterprises, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: Initially I thought this drive was great, but just as the 1 year warranty expired it started giving me a error message, but was still working, called thier tech support, and did as instructed, and the unit failed completely, and they just tell me "sorry it's out of warranty" I said I understand but it was still working until your tech got hold of it, now I have no drive at all and all you can say is "sorry it's out of warranty".

Frustrating & Horrible NAS Drive

Stephane J., Newegg
1 May 2014
  • Pros: 2 TB is alot of space for the price.
  • Cons: You get what you pay for...I bought this NAS drive for my small business and it's been an extremely frustrating and horrible experience. For starters, the mobile application was built by a 3rd party developer and Buffalo couldnt provide any support. The design, UI and usability is horrible and very slow. I was happy WHEN and/or IF remote access was available. When traveling, I prefer to back up my files on DVD or flash drive rather than attempt to access. After countl...

Two dead in less than a year of use.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased a Buffalo LinkStation Live 2 TB to replace my book world that died. The reviews indicated that it would do the job of backing up the computers on our network. Unfortunately the first one we purchased was dead out of the box. They replaced that one. I had lost a lot of data with the demise of the book world. So I got busy backing up the pictures and files that I could find so that would not happen again.

  • Summary: I had to have the help of my son to make the connections with all of my computers(PC and Mac). But it looks like it will work great now. I will be able to store files and be able to access from anywhere.

Eady Peasy - Should be 4 star & not less than that

vivek lengade, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: I am not sure why this has been rated slow low on Amazon? I bought this device for media storing and accessing over the home and on phone via internet. I unpacked my NAS yesterday plugged and followed the simple steps mentioned in their quick installation guide and i was up and running in less than 15Mins. That was easy.
