  • Pros: Easy setup, the settings using the NAS Navigator2 are easy to navigate, great customer support, and I love the double NIC configuration.

I don't think they are the best drives out there

John smith, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: My first drive worked for almost 6 months very well, so I purchased another one. the second drive died after one month, the first one died almost a week after the second. I have tried every possible, with tech support, on line articles but could not fix them.

worst support ever

  • Summary: disk failed after 30 some days and the only response you get is their automated email. don't know if Synology is any better, but they can't possibly have worse support.

Works as promised but extremely loud

David Cohen, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: This terra station was the best deal I could find with existing drives. I had my IT vendor set it up as a local backup NAS for my server. It has a web interface that I haven't taken the time to figure out.

Excellent Tech Support

Billy R. Inmon, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: I was extremely pleased with the product but most of all with the support I received from Kerry at Buffalo Tech Support. He was extremely patient and made sure he answered all of my questions. I received a response within thirty minutes (if not immediately) if I contacted tech support.

Great for a home network storage device, but not super reliable

Long Beach Native, Amazon
16 January 2014
  • Summary: I've had quite a few TeraStations over the years, including a couple of this 16TB model. We back up all of our photos and videos, but always keep at least one other copy somewhere. Even though these will preserve data if one drive fails, you can't really count on that.
