One power outage ruins it

JR W., Newegg
4 December 2015
  • Summary: Bad design flaw on Buffalo's part, I would not trust this product.
  • Pros: Easy Web Interface to use, fast. I setup iSCSI between the TeraStation and my company server, that was easy to do and had no issues there.
  • Cons: Every time there is a power outage, it doesn't come back on. The OS partition that the machine creates itself when you first set it up fails and you can't start it back up. I contacted Buffalo support, they were no help, the online forums confirmed what had happened to me. No fix. There's a reset...

Huge oversight

Michael S., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Summary: Huge oversight by Buffalo.
  • Pros: NAS works fine as expected
  • Cons: FAILS to restart on power outage. I researched the Buffalo user forums and confirmed this. The forums alluded to using a compatible UPS, but does not list what UPS models are "compatible" in the manual or the Buffalo website.

Good drive lacking most basic feature

Michael S., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Summary: Researching Buffalo's website to see what they have to say.
  • Pros: Excellent NAS. It was relatively easy to set up, and the iSCSI. It worked just fine with my VEEAM ware back up software. I have had it operating for a year now.
  • Cons: It will not restart on power failure. I am shocked that this most basic feature is not part of the firmware. There doesn't seem to be a setting in the GUI that addresses this either.

Buffalo's Tech Support Is Stellar

SimonB, Amazon
16 June 2015
  • Summary: This is a revised review. I previously complained bitterly about this NAS not replicating as advertised (see below). After several calls to Tech Support, they in fact issued a new firmware version that fixed the problem. So I have to give them very high marks for responsiveness.

Easy setup; Easy connection

  • Excerpt: The setup wizard made it easy to create video server directories and data directories. Gigabit speed with my wired desktop computer enables FAST connection and upload of files. Auto-SLEEP features allows for server to shutdown at bedtime and wake-up prior to our wake-up in the morning.
