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.

Password reset? Good luck!

Sarah S., Newegg
2 March 2015
  • Pros: Works great. Easy setup & access is very usable.
  • Cons: One of the peeps here changed the default password. and guess what there is not a way for the user to reset it. According to Buffalo you have to send it in to them and hopefully you don't have sensitive data on it like us. The HDD must be in it when you send it back.

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.

Quiet worker

Peter Rafeiner, Amazon
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.
