Don't buy it.

tnewton, Amazon
14 June 2014
  • Summary: Don't bother. It's a physically robust device, I've been attempting to keep it running for a long time. ATTEMPTED. The instructions are manageable, but obtuse. There are also SEVERAL undocumented 'gotchas' that will have you scouring forums wondering what you did wrong, only to find the problem is...

Working fine.... but seems slow. (SEE EDIT)

NDA "s5nda", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a mini device, roughly the size of six packs of ciggies, 3 on top of 3 (if I'm allowed such an analogy). Sometimes small doesn't inspire confidence if you have 50,000 MP3's and 15 years of DNG photos to store, you kind of want something a bit beefier looking. However.....

Makes great little NAS Server!

H. Linzey-Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the white version from Amazon.co.uk, excellent service as always. I needed a simple standalone Upnp NAS to stream HQ 24/192 music around the house. The Linkstation mini certainly delivers and is near silent in operation.

Buffalo Linkstation Min 1Tb

Amazon Customer "Rabbiteer", Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Very attractive idea. I bought two as backups. I set then up as 500Gb Raid 1. Both failed within 6 months. One had a motherboard problem. The other had a recurrent disk error which was resolved by reformatting twice but not the third time.

Bad Sectors

P, Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: Seemed to work for a while, but the day after I put some data on it, the NAS drive stopped working. Moreover, it took quite a while to figure out that there were bad sectors on the disk that caused this. Am returning it for a refund. Will add review comments on how quickly I get my refund.

Swift6, Amazon

very complete package - just works

Dr. Patrick M. Martin "Il Dottore", Amazon
24 September 2009
  • Summary: I do have experience with the linkstation line, and having a moderate size home network. So take the assertion that it just works with a pinch of salt, as I have already tweaked to get good reliability. Nevertheless, this is a box you can unplug, plug in and start using straight away.
