Inferior product and service.

Steevuk, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased two of these units several months ago and I truly, truly regret it. On extracting one of the drives, I found that the circuit board was fraying and splitting. I contacted Buffalo technology and at the same time supplied photographs of the said damage. An investigation then followed by the Manager, the engineer and team leader of the help desk, and without physically inspecting the drive, they concluded that I had caused the damage, because of the way I...

Good NAS for reasonable price

Sarah JC, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had the 2TB Linkstation Pro Duo for about two months now. I went for this as it was reasonably priced, with good features and supported RAID and USB printers. You have to work through the web interface to get it all setup how you want it, but once done, it's pretty easy. I also wanted a NAS that I could share a USB printer.

Good NAS drive

G. Noakes, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: I've used a 500GB Linkstation for over 2 years with no problems until I knocked it off the shelf and it caused a failure on the motherboard. I purchased this 4TB unit as an upgrade, sticking with Buffalo for its reliability and familiarity. RAID was easy to configure and didn't take long to create.

Surprised....in negative!

David+E, Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: I've never returned an item like this, normally my purchases are thoughtful and I do not make mistakes. Not this time. This is a product very well advertised but practically very LIMITED, despite all the nice misleading features. One for all is the almost useless USB port. CAREFUL!!! It's not a normal Hard Disk, easy to connect to your PC or MAC. You can only use it as NAS (via web) therefore, if you have over 300GB of data to backup...forget it.

Buffalo LinkStation Pro Duo 2 Tb

wmscott, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: great unit, we use this as a remote backup unit for the family buisness/home storage, have it installed at home and using it as a file store for the family (films music etc) set this up i a couple of hours. still to set up the remote backup link between offic and home looks a little more involved ie having the business set up fully functional to start with, might take a few weeks yet.

very good but needs configuration

  • Summary: have had this for just under a month and it has worked perfectly so far. but: a warning to potential buyers it will require a little setup to work exactly how you want it too, all very simple stuff but its not quite plug and play in my opinion

Wrong Name For This Product

v6nelson, Amazon
7 November 2011
  • Summary: I am giving this product the lowest rating because given by its product title, i.e. Pro & High Speed, I am deeply disppointed by its poor performance. Here are some figures for your consideration: - I have 41 files in a folder, a mixture of JPG, and large TIF files. Size = 1.01 GB. Three of the largest TIFs > 100 MB each. - I use Canon's DPP software to process image files.

Quick Setup

Andy, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: Overall I'm very happy with the Buffalo LinkStation Pro Duo. Setup was a piece of cake and unlike the other reviewers I haven't found the drive to be noisy when in standby or in use. The Web Access works well as does the "sleep" function where the drive will automatically shut-down between certain hours of the day.

Great product design and features, but poor build quality

MC David "4tharu", Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: Really like the design and features of this product. However at 31 days it had a catastrophic failure and would not recognise hard drives. Note the HDD are Western Digital Eco Green and were perfectly functional - the problem was with the actual NAS unit. Amazon were great and issued a refund and arranged collection, despite being just out of the 30 day window.
