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...
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.
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.
Summary: Review written after 4 1/2 Months of Use Pros: 1. Works as specified in Manufacturer's Data Sheet. 2. Fast access to files. Reading and writing speed is close to that on your local drive. 3. Numerous features and settings. Can be customized to most computing environments. 4.
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.
