Look Elsewhere - Consumer Grade At Best

Clint G., Newegg
16 May 2015
  • Summary: Buffalo advertises a 3 year warranty on this device. Mine threw three drives in that timeframe. Their policy seems to be to try to "wait you out" with byzantine "diagnostics" procedures designed to waste your time not identify an issue. So it's a 3 year warranty in name only.
  • Pros: Big, economical
  • Cons: Slow, fragile, and seems "not quite done" as most functions only partially work.

  • Summary: I knew not to expect much from a NAS at this price point. However, the experience has been worse than my wildest dreams. We purchase a significant amount of hardware and I've never dealt with a vendor this uninformed and unresponsive. Buyer beware!
  • Pros: Cheap, large amount of storage
  • Cons: LDAP integration does not work even after spending days on the phone with support trying to get things to work, HDD failed within warranty period and it's been weeks since RMA request was submitted and I can't get any feedback at all from BuffaloTech.

It is a great server but somewhat difficult to configure advanced features

Kindle Customer, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: I have had terastation servers in my photography studios for several years now and am continually running out of space for my images.
