  • 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.

Horrible product

Greg W., Newegg

  • Pros: Device was easy to configure. Web interface is nice. Notifications work and file transfer quick.

OK until it breaks - then replaced with refurbished unit

richardajh, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought my Buffalo in November 2010 and reasonably happy with it. Shortly before the warranty period ended the drive failed. I returned it to Buffalo who sent a replacement. The replacement was a refurbished drive and during the process of copying my files onto it this replacement exhibited an error. At this point the warranty period had expired and Buffalo would do nothing further for me.

Don't Buy this Product

Bluebell, Amazon
14 April 2012
  • Summary: I rarely write reviews of products. So the fact that I have taken the time here shows how strongly I feel about this product. I have had it for about at a year now. It worked ok, I was not in love with the interfaces but it worked. However recently it has moved into emergency mode rendering it un usable. Buffalo support suggest that I need to update the firmware.

Not compatible with Mac OS Lion

Grunt, Amazon
29 October 2011
  • Summary: This NAS is not compatible with Mac OS Lion, and there is no upgrade. So if you want to use Time Machine, don't buy it. I bought one less that a year ago and now it's no longer fit for purpose.

Money down the drain

Borimard, Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: At first, I thought this piece of kit worked really well. I then upgraded to Mac OS Lion - now the damn thing doesn't work and the manufacturer is less than helpful. All in all - save time, money, and stress and buy something else!

Useless Network Drive

David Toffer, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: It does what it says, but you need to be careful with macs and networked printers. The printer server doesn't work with all printers, luckily my printer already has a network function and as for mac function the NAS programme seems unable to work on mac and find the drive. So I've had to use network function native to the mac. It is ok if like me you run windows and macs in the same house. As for reliability i've only had it for just over a month.
