Excerpt: This device has exceeded my expectations on the iSCSI connection side. I have connected to a VM running server 2008 R2 and it is performing very well. Was a little disappointed when only saw 2.6 TB available, but then felt better once I realized it was due to the built RAID array configuration. This is a very good investment and very versatile device. I am strongly considering recommending this for use at my church to store the video surveillance on.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, inexpensive, Quality Construction, Reliable
Advised by Buffalo that this is a mid range product and not reliable as a storage solution for important information
16 April 2014
Summary: received 2 of these, both broke,= as did multiple drives within them. lost information and after lots of phone calls to the buffalo help desk advised that this is a mid range product and not reliable as a storage solution for important information, and that if i was serious about my digital storage I would have spent more money. So not recommended if you want to retrieve any data . . . . . . . .
