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. I feel like the people who are complaining about how it's not great at downloading torrents while streaming video to three locations and backing up their 5 TB picture collection really need to look for something beyond an...
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.
Summary: I purchased two of the Buffalo LS-X1.0TL (Oct 2012 and Jan 2013). I have used one on a daily basis since Oct 2012 and could not be much happier. It does everything I need it to. I have the NAS power up every morning and then power itself down late in the evening. I use is as a back-up location for several laptops on the network (via SyncToy running on a Window's hourly scheduled task). The second NAS purchased in Jan 2013 is only used to back-up the primary NAS.
Great storage device. Really need someone in IT to setup advanced features.

Summary: Great features, works great with the online remote access. I can imagine the setup being really difficult for someone that's not Tech Savvy. I work in IT though so it wasn't too big of a learning curve to get this working as I wanted.
Summary: I bought one of these some eight months ago. You plug it into the router with an Ethernet cord (or plug it into a switch), plug it into the power supply, connect to its IP address with Firefox, log on to it, then assign it a name on your workgroup, create any root folders, and unless you add or remove root folders that will be the last time you ever have to do anything to it.
Summary: I wanted a solution to stream movies to my DLNA enabled tv (Panasonic p55st50). Previously, I would either connect my laptop via HDMI OR I would copy the movie I wanted to watch to a USB drive. This process took too much time, especially for impromptu situations. Ideally, I wanted a HTPC, but considering the price, size, power efficiency, etc., I decided to get a smart NAS device. I can setup torrents for it to download 24/7 without needing a PC draining power all day.
Summary: I have had mine since February (2013) and I haven't had any problems with it. The web interface is a bit clunky but that isn't the main function of the device so I am not worried about it. It was the best nas for the price at the time and I was in need of making backups and wanted the functionality of accessing it across the network. You can set up any amount of users with any permissions which makes it nice if you want share a folder with someone else.
Summary: I was looking for a backup device and NAS to support all of the PC's and tablet's in my house. I have their commercial units at work, so I thought I would try one at home. Worked like a charm. I was up and running and backing up in a matter of minutes. The web interface makes it easy to manage as well.
