Don't buy it.

  • 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 some tidbit of information the manufacturer neglected to mention. The main problem is dropouts.

Buffalo Linkstation Min 1Tb

Amazon Customer "Rabbiteer", Amazon

  • 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. Being non user serviceable you cannot replace a failed drive yourself so anything on them is lost. If you have a power cut while they are on they may well need their bios reinstalling. Not difficult but a pain.

Manque de fiabilité

Régis, Amazon

  • Summary: Sur le papier cette petite machine est séduisante. Au bout de 6 mois, j'ai des soucis de secteurs défectueux. Or il semble impossible de changer un disque. Ne convient donc pas à mon avis pour une solution de sauvegarde et de partage si la fiabilité et la pérennité de l'investissement font partie de vos critères importants.
