Summary: I realized recently that my entire LIFE is on my two computers--my laptop and my desktop...and that my old backup hard drive was full and I was totally left unprotected. So, a network back up drive sounds good, doesn't it? But I had no idea how to set that up...
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.
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.
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.
Pros: I bought this after looking for a NAS that would work with the 360, without any third party software, or having to use extender, It does just that. Their support was quick to answer my questions before I bought. It's quite. And the Price isn’t too bad. I’ll post more after I’ve had it for longer.
Cons: None to speak of for me, but I can see if you wanted to use it for a ftp server where the software would be limiting.
Summary: I haven't tried the bitTorrent function so I can't comment on it. Overall, this NAS works flawlessly on my network for serving my media to my PS3 (without using tversity to do it!). Also serves as a great central backup location if you have multiple computers on a network.
Pros: Faster than expected transfer speeds. Serves music, photos and video to my PS3 very well. Also serves mac and pc's on my network with good streaming speeds. Memeo backup software included is a million times better than the outdated retrospect garbage that was included with my last ext. hard drive...
Cons: Time machine doesn't work as I hoped with my snow leopard mac. I haven't tried the Memeo for mac yet, but I expect that it works well. I didn't realize that you can't hook the nas directly to a computer by pc. This thing has to be hooked to your router by ethernet (this hasn't been a problem, but...
