Summary: Plugged the NAS into my router, turned it on, went and grabbed a soda from the fridge. Went back to my computer and did a network search, and there was the NAS unit. Connection was easy as pie, setup was easy as well. I also did not use the included ethernet cable. The included cable is a flat ribbon cable and is not good for high speed data. Best to replace it with a Cat 6 or at a minimum Cat5e cable.
Summary: I bought 2 of these, one for my home network and one for a friends business. They work perfect, 55+Mbps transfer rate. Web accessible, multi-user from outside of the local network. Amazing device, the only problem is that if your not comp savvy, you're dead in the water. You have to port forward to get them to work properly.
Summary: I purchased a Buffalo Linkstation Pro model LS-V2.0LT this week end. I followed the exact instruction to set up the drive with my Acer Windows 7 system. Once all of the software was loaded I set the backup to do a complete backup. A message was shown that the computer had to be restarted before the backup could be completed.
Summary: I bought this unit Shipped on April 17, 2011 from Amazon for $819.34. I had it about 2 weeks then booted it up one morning to an E07 error message, which translates to a Logic Board Failure. I RMA'd the unit and all was good. Now on August 01, 2011 I went to boot up the unit one morning and again got the E07 error message Logic Board Failure. In speaking with tech support I suggested there may be a known issue with these units that Buffalo is not yet aware of.
Pros: I bought my first unit April 19 2011, May 04 I booted it up one morning and received an E07 error bad logic board or logic board failure.
Summary: network card hard disk is so much more than a usb hard disk. I have all my data on the hard disk, not on my computer, mapped as a network drive I can work on my images like as fast as on images on my PC. I back up this hard disk to another one and have no problem when changing my computer, since the data sits on my "file server" external hard disk
