Summary: Good price for a NAS and you can connect a USB drive to it also, but I just don't like the delay before I can use the drive.
Pros: NAS drive!
Cons: I am used to NAS drives at work that are ready when I am. I turn my computer off after most uses and then when I restart my computer the NAS drive isn't available right away about 50% of the time. I've poked around the settings but can't find out why this happens.
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.
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...
Pros: Looks good. I can probably part-out the harddrive that it came with.
Cons: First , the unit wouldnt boot or initiate after installing per instructions. I emailed Buffalo tech support, and after 3 days they told me that the firmware needed an update. after doing so it worked. Extremely complicated to make work for internet sharing and iPhone sharing; Never could get it t...
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.
Summary: Drive can be upgrade, but warranty could be void. Could not use this device has is, to work Music/Photo/Video Windows 7 librairies and Media Player/Zune, because of the Non-Indexed content, but using mklink command line tool, I've mange to make it work
Pros: bought it as a Shell Shocker for 73.49$. For that price it is a good device. Was very easy to configure, exception for WebAccess.
Cons: WebAccess did not work, and documentation is very poor about it. Device Web Interface is slow to react.
Summary: This fit in perfectly, but is a little noisy. Also, after letting a hardware tech friend of mine look at it, he believes I could have simply replaced the fan by going to Frys for the fan and re-using the mount, which would have cost only a few dollars and a few minutes.
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.
