Reasonable RAID solution for home server

Young, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Good product for the price (paid $404 from Amazon). The price attracted me to this, since the "real" RAID 5 solution w/o performance issues are around ~$600~$800 w/o the hard drives. Bought it to protect my distributed data around 5 computers, and enough performance to keep all the files from the computers on the networked NAS drive, and protected.

Great Media Device - IMO - Even A little Better than HP Media Smart Server

Larry Joe, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I initially bought the NAS to use for additional storage and for the RAID capabilities. I currently also have an HP Media Smart EX470 Home Server that I use to backup my home PC's and as a Media Server to stream audio and video through XBOX. I wanted a backup of the server so that I would not have to spend countless hours re-ripping my entire DVD and CD collection in the event of a Server crash.

Slower than a big $$$ NAS, but excellent value for the money

Micahel Thomas, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I'm using this as a 450GB RAID 10 (mirrored/striped)array. If you are curious as to why RAID 10 rather than 5, take a look here: [...] Unit was up and running 10 min after it came out of the box. It took about 2min to break down the the factory array configuration, around 6 min to rebuild as a RAID 10 array, around 85 min.

LinkStation Pro is a good RAID System

Whitham D. Reeve "Program User", Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: I currently operate four identical LinkStations and they work well. However, when there is a problem other than a simple hard drive failure, I have had zero success recovering and end up replacing the failed unit. I have had individual drives fail and have recovered by replacing the drive. The same was true of the TeraStations. Support is through Buffalo's forum, and it is not that great. I continue to use the LinkStations because they have a nice backup feature.

Everything it is supposed to be

Billy Horton, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: I've had nothing but good experiences with Buffalo. I bought my first NAS, a 4-drive Terastation, about 5 years ago. In that time it ran mostly non-stop and all I had to do was replace a few drives. However, it suddenly developed a glitch a little while back and I was unable to access any of the files. Tech support was very helpful and was able to help me find a way to get the Terastation limping along enough to copy all the files from it.

Good so far.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: The other reviews on here are pretty bad. I've run this thing 16+ hrs./day since June with great success. I edit HD video and the transfer speed has been fine - via CAT 5. Let's hope only the unhappy people have been posting.

Bra

hultin, Prisjakt
11 January 2014
  • Summary: För pengarna helt ok. Det är inte lika snyggt, eller smidigt gränssnitt som Synologys DSM. Men för den dryga tusenlapp det handlar om för skalet är det helt ok.
