Good while lasts...

Evgueni Tchirkov, Amazon

  • Summary: I have purchased this unit 2 years ago, and I must say I was happy with it, until now: Everything worked just fine, easy to setup, easy to use. great features for a unit of this price range. The performance is good as well.... Some days ago, the device started making strange noise... so I suspect the worst: HDD is dead. it wasn't far from truth: after powering on, hhd only worked normally for about 10 minutes, after that, started making "bad" sounds...

Great NAS drive, works awesome as PS3 media server

gelwood, Amazon

  • Summary: The Buffalo Nas 1.0 T is a great network drive for your average techy. I wanted a drive to store movies and music for easy access from my PS3 and it works perfectly for that task. Setting up the drive was easy, even with the MAC software. I havn't used the Memeo software to backup my computer files because I use a different drive for that. The only issue I have had with the product is having to reflash the firmware which took me a while to figure out.

  • Summary: I researched NAS drive quite a bit before buying and found the features on the Buffalo drives to be highly regarded. It took literally minutes to set up before I was on line and using the drive for backup. A wonderful product, I have already recommended this to many people.

Works as advertised - is quiet

iconkatz, Amazon

  • Summary: I Bought a Buffalo Technology LinkStation Pro 1 TB two months ago as a music server for my Sonos. Setup was pretty straightforward. It is in the same room as my sound system, so the fact that it is so quiet is a big plus. Wired to my D-Link router and transferred my 40GB iTunes to it wirelessly (at a few MB/sec). It's been on ever since and working flawlessly. If it didn't have blue LED's, I wouldn't know it was there.

Starts up but doesn't proceed well enough

  • Summary: Link station is easy to set up. But that is the most it can go upto. Throws up errors while mapping and it didn't proceed further at all.

Can't beat it for the price

EncinoGrande, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had 2 of these for about 15 months. They both, work pretty much flawlessly. The only hardware problem I've had is one of them wouldn't switch off one time. But after I pulled the plug on it, it started behaving. I use the second solely as a backup for the 1st. They have a wake-on-LAN capability so they power up and down automatically. Caveat: only a computer with the NAS software installed will wake it up.

Could be better, could be worse, not for everyone

Tanja Lessner, Amazon
15 August 2010
  • Summary: My needs were pretty simple -- central storage for photos and video that are too big to keep on every laptop in the house. I also wanted to keep backups of non-media files on the NAS, not the only archive copy of them, but duplicate backups that can be accessed conveniently. Setup went OK, but only after I downloaded the updated version of NAS Navigator (the software you have to run on each computer on the network to let it connect to the NAS).

Buffalo NAS Review

A. D. Sharp "A.D. Sharp", Amazon
13 July 2010
  • Summary: This was easy to setup. I purchased two of these units one as the primary backup and one as the secondary. I unpacked and installed both on my network in about 30 minutes. Next I configured a backup which I struggled with. I called tech support and sat on hold less than a minute. The support walked me through setting up a backup in about 5 minutes. I set one backup to run immediately (backup the primary to the secondary) and another to run daily at 1AM.

I'm happy - after some start-up challenges

Walt Marston, Amazon
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Impressive list of features for a low-cost device. I selected the LinkStation Pro primarily for native Time Machine backup support, DLNS media server capabilities and the "direct copy" feature from a USB device. I also planned to use the file-sharing capability that NAS provides within my home network and liked the fact that it included Gigabit Ethernet.
