Not bad. could be better

Amir A., Newegg
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I use this for media storage, so I am not very concerned with the issues that I have, except for the HDD LEDs (see CONS)
  • Pros: Small footprint. doesn't have those floodlight LED's that light up an entire room. Has the normal applications that most NAS devices have. Pretty fast transfer speeds. Quiet
  • Cons: a bunch: 1- Not very easy to set up. I have a RAID-5 system with 3 after I had some HDD rearrangement, but not it's been giving me an error on disk 4 (which isn't there and not even set up with RAID5) and for the life of me can't see how to get rid of it. 2- Firwmare update is VERY buggy.

  • 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.

Everything it is supposed to be

Billy Horton, Amazon

  • 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.

LinkStation Pro is a good RAID System

Whitham D. Reeve, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • 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.

Reasonable RAID solution for home server

Young, Amazon
30 January 2009
  • 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.
