Do not purchase this product!

  • Summary: My unit is toast and still under warranty but that means nothing because the replacement unit that I received from Buffalo was also defective. I lost data that I could not recover simply because the unit locked up on me. The company was completely unhelpful. The amount of time that was wasted on trying to fix this and deal with the Buffalo tech support is the worst part.

Terrible experience

  • Summary: I bought this product from Frys. The first unit failed after I changed the configuration to RAID5, I returned it after technical support gave up. I got another also from Frys, this one failed also after changing the configuration to RAID 5 , in a different way and technical support gave up again. In both cases I had not data on the drives, attempting to change to RAID5 was the first thing I did.

  • Excerpt: 1)There is only 1 nic not 2 as both Buffalo's website and B&Hs web site state 2)Media server worked for a day now I can't get it working again on my Macs. 3)Appliance seemed to be working at first glance. Set up shares moved a bunch of data over, tried to access the shares from different machine no data. Tried a windows machine and same thing can mount the share and see directories but not all of the end data.

  • Conclusion: Dont buy the drive!
  • Pros: When it works you can share files over a network that are already on the drive or copy to the drive.
  • Cons: Buggy firmware constantly has to dealt with like updating the date and time which is never right no matter how many times you call tech support and try to fix it. Also doesnt work with any printers. One of the features was that you could plug a printer into the back of the buffalo drive and use the printer across the network. This used to work on my system untill they came out with a new firmware to fix the date and time bug now my printer doesnt work and tech support...
