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.

1TB of storage

Bruce J. Azzarito, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I know my way around NAS storage, so when the program did not install correctly on my iMac, I was able to correct it. The instructions and how it works are a bit different. Only time will tell if it holds up.

Not Reliable

Joshua Sedgwick, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: I received this product as a Christmas present in 2012. After about 10 months of it working perfectly fine without a single hiccup, it started to fall off the network. The only way to fix this was to do a manual reboot (i.e. pulling out the power and putting it back in).

NAS hardware is okay, be wary of loud clicking hard disks.

Brian Bailey, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: I'd like to rate this product higher, but first unit I received was damaged goods and probably a refurbished unit. Amazon took care of it right away. Second unit I received had a very loud hard disk (western digital) that would park the heads every seven minutes when sitting idle.

NAS... and only NAS

Vincent B., Newegg
20 October 2013
  • Summary: I thought i had trouble due to the structure and settings of my home network. After configuring the nas and router to the recommended settings, I quickly found that the instability is caused by the buffalo nas web interface.
  • Pros: The system is highly customizable and configurable for any type of network. Works very well for NAS and media streaming alike, easily streaming audio and video to 3 different devices without as much as a stutter.
  • Cons: 1st one died. Needed to RMA less than 2 months into ownership upon a reboot after a firmware upgrade. And although Buffalo was fast in their responses to my support ticket, they certainly use generic responses, asking me to push reset buttons that just do not exist on this particular model. The "...

It is not a Media Streaming Server!

J. L. Roberts, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: Allow me to preface this review by stating that the Buffalo LinkStation is first and foremost a NAS (Network Attached Storage) unit. After a year of fighting with this device trying to make it into a DLNA home network media server (as you would believe by the specs), I finally came to the conclusion...

Taylor Snow, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: The UI leaves much to be desired. Read and Write speeds seem to be fine however the web interface is way to slow. Hoping for an update soon.
