Poor qualify product - Buffalo LinkStation Live 2 TB

J Johnson "J Johnson", Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I would not buy this Buffalo LinkStation again. After a year and a half, the NAS drive stopped working. My friend tried to see if he could get this NAS drive working again. He noted that the operating system on this unit was Linux.

"86% of Buffalo Drives Failed within 2 years"

Alisa Daniel "Alisa", Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: Over the years I have purchased 7 of these NAS Drives, no more than 2 bought at a time, at this point 6 of 7 of these drives have completely failed losing all my data. Countless hours spent with tech support, 2 fell within the warranty period, which I still had to pay to ship the item back to them,...

OK for Very Lightweight Use

lebowitzit, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: In general, I'm a fan of Buffalo NAS drives, but I've become disenchanted with this particular model over time. Buffalo claims that this drive can integrate with Active Directory on networks with Windows 2xxx servers, but I've never managed to get that integration to work.

Want to lose your money? Buy from this company...

Rick L, Amazon
21 August 2014
  • Summary: ...actually, DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM BUFFALLO. This drive stopped working within 3 months. Contacted BUFFALLO for warranty. Was offered a replacement for a $30 "handling fee." Are you kidding me? That's almost 50% of the original cost. Contacted support to discuss.

Matt Brenton, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: This is a cheap single drive NAS. For the price this thing is awesome. I use it as it was intended to be used, to store and access files from my home network. It claims to have built in streaming and torrent services, but I've never used them.

Flashing BLue Light Death

D. OBRIEN, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: Made it maybe a year and a half, and then the dreaded flashing blue light of death. You can hear the drive spin up and the heads move but my guess is the processor or firmware is failing. There are no reset options or anything. It is just dead . . . a brick.

Absolutely awful support for a mediocre product

Elias Ghosn, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this LinkStation as my first home NAS and it worked okay for awhile. I was happy with it. After about a year of use it just went dead. It disappeared from my network and there is absolutely no way to find it again.

Not reliable

humbleconsumer, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this for a small office for archiving files from employees and sharing files. Worked fine for about 1 year and then poof, stopped working (without any symptoms or waring). With the help of manufacturer support we found it is in an "endless boot loop" - what ever that means.

Quiet worker

27 May 2014
  • Summary: Running it 24/7 for several month now. No issues; all seems ok. Even a number of sudden power outages did not upset anything.
