Summary: I wanted something I could access from the internet but my PC won't automatically recognize this on my home network when the PC boots. I have to manually connect to it every time. I tried to contact support to find out how to do a low level format so I could try and sell it, no response. Lots of storage for a decent price, but doesn't suit my needs.
Summary: Good altogether. Love BitTorrent app, I use it all day long. Cons: sometimes it crashes, so I have to restart it, auto function doesn't seem to work,so I have to set on all day. Some months go, bt stopped working with one buffalo update, in the en, it worked by changing the trackers, but it to me a while to figure out.
Just a great addition to any PC setup or Netwrork Thank you Amazon

Summary: The device is quieter than I thought. It has worked well from day-1. It was simple to install and set up, and I have never looked back. I have backed up my files and, when I needed to, I restored them. I have not had one glitch with this 1 TB NAS. Great bargain @ this price. I could not be happier. I bought the 1TB to see how the device worked. If I ever buy another one, it will be a 2TB.
Summary: Though the model has been upgraded since I got one, this is a perfect network enabled drive for home use, one of the best functions setting it apart is the Bittorrent integration which allows for remote downloading as well.
Summary: Had it for a few months now. Couldn't be more satisfied. Hooked it up to my router, popped the CD into my laptop and it did all the work. It can be loud, easily heard from across the room. Doesn't bother me in the slightest, but this could be a con to some. Also, it can't be brought out of sleep mode unless the program is running. So my PS3 can't wake it up.
Summary: Buffalo tech makes good NAS units. However, pay attention to the advertising of the bundled software. They no longer ship with Memeo backup software. They're using Novastor. Memeo will monitor an entire sub-directory, directory or entire drive for changes and backup the changes transparently in the background. A feature I like. I have 4 laptops and 2 desktops and all but one run Memeo. Novastor runs like conventional backup software with scheduled backup jobs.
Summary: This thing worked great until a power outage. It rebooted in emergency mode an you practically need a degree in programming to get the thing back online. Heaven forbid you're on Mac OS, because that means you're SOL. You need to hook it up to a PC to have a hope of getting it working again.
