Excerpt: We have been using Buffalo servers for years. they are reliable and trouble free. Theses new 16TB units are replacing older 4TB units. The software is easy to use and there are no hidden expenses (licensing fees. Highly recommend this product.
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.
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.
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

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.
