Summary: This NAS unit is as advertisedand a great price for 2tb and a lot smaller than i thought it would be,hardly takes up any space on my desk. Its a little bigger than a hard drive,shiny black plastic case with some chrome effect trim looks very professional. It came brand new with instructions and cables,unfortunately i am having problems with my wifi so have yet to set up and test it.
Summary: This is my second Linkstation NAS box after my first Linkstation Live box. I needed to boost my NAS diskspace and after toying with buying a NAS unit and harddrive to fit in it I decided to to just buy this Linkstation Pro. The drive is nice and quiet (it sits in my entertainment centre under the TV in the living room) I have a gigabit router so the improved transfer speeds compared to the Live line was a noticeable boost.
Summary: This product has been nothing but trouble. Started off lovely then decided to give up working. Have spoken to buffalo and was told I needed to get an expert in computers in to help me! Updating the firmware is a nightmare and still unable to do it.
At last something that works with our Squeezebox Touch

Summary: At last something that works with our Squeezebox Touch...Instead of having to switch on the PC all the time!!! Have really struggled with getting a hard drive that would work with my Squeezebox Touch...as I have Thousands of Albums!!! Tried WD drives plugged into the back of it...no good...tried WD My book live 2tb cloud...wouldn't work either...had read online that the WD drive would work wireless with the Touch but couldn't manage to get them to communicate..
Summary: Buffalo Linkstation Pro 2TB is an awesome NAS with excellent performance, actually better than the others, especially WD. I have used the device for 18 months with no problem, and now it is dead instantly. The reason for giving 3 stars is not only to this NAS, but all of them with single bay. Since the NAS device will work all the day, even for weeks without switching off, the reliability is a problem.
Summary: Having used the a previous link station to stream to a PS3 and Sonos I needed extra room, and would buy one of these again if I needed to. Fast enough, reliable, easy to link and stream. The BitTorrent client is ok if a little ugly on the eye as is the web interface, the ony downside is that I have struggled to get the iPhone and iPad app to work. I work in an IT environment but found it a little cumbersome and eventually gave up as a bad job.
Summary: This is just great all my stuff in one place and a lot faster than the cheaper versions of Linkstation it is very easy to set up and can access all my files in one place from TV\different PC's just what I needed
