Jon Ruiz, Amazon

  • Summary: My drive failed shortly after the 1 year warranty expired. It just flashes it's status light red and won't mount with any kind of disk utility. I'm very disappointed and will not by from Buffalo again.

Don't waste your money

chet, Amazon
7 November 2014
  • Summary: Bought this external storage iin July 13'. It's been making funny sounds (like it's dead) and I can't get it to connect for 2 months now. So basically this drive which I hardly ever used lasted just long enough to not be covered under the warranty. I'd save my money and buy a better quality product if I had to do it again.

Novastor's solution is for me to go down to best buy tonight

Kevin carson, Amazon
27 October 2014
  • Summary: Hi all. Here's my story and here's why you should not buy a Linkstation if you intend to use it to backup a network. I use a Linkstation Pro to backup the pcs on our home network. A hard drive recently crashed on my PC. After installing a new hard drive, loading windows, etc., I went to restore my PC's data off of my linkstation. I could not get any of the data to "import" to Novastor, the backup software that Buffalo sells with the Linkstation.

Not a good product!

Bobby M., Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: I've had this product just less than a year and it already broke. It seems to been a problem with the firmware on the device because it would freeze up and wouldn't let me connect to it. All my files were still there (the hard drive was fine) but I just couldn't access them. It doesn't help that it uses SGI XFS file system (which you can only access from a Linux OS).

A boost to our overly taxed network

NYC Charter, Amazon
21 April 2014
  • Summary: This is a great value! We purchased the LinkStation to relieve the stress on our overly taxed network and use it for photo storage. It was a quick and simple setup to install on our server resulting in extra storage on our regular network.

My media server and storage

CK "CK", Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: All my movies, songs, pictures are stored here, all in one place. It connects to my router, Yamaha receiver, WD box, Ipad. I can watch different movies simultaneously. One movie on the Ipad, another on my TV via the WD box, another movie on my laptop. Simultaneously. Good stuff.

Death at 18 months

Cityzen X "alejo", Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Considering the concept of NAS, theses devices should be designed to last as a server. Must recognize that I enjoyed this toy, specialy accesing my files from the internet through the FTP server, but reliabitliy should be a must. Bougth in october 2012, "red light of death", as another reviewer posted, in march 2014, means 18 months lifespan: disapointing. DO NOT TRUST YOUR FILES TO THIS DEVICE ONLY, if you already have one. If you don't, save your bucks.
