Summary: 2TB of storage on a raid1 (which means that the other 2TB drive is used to keep a copy of the 1st drive). Attached to a gigabit networklink it is fast. Webaccess can easily be setup. Users can easily be setup, but no setup is required.
Summary: Is a great device with dual gigabit LAN, great interface (but slow) and lot of features like how swap, raid 1, included HDDs, LCD display. Remember to setup the auto/manual sleep option in the back with the switch.
Summary: This has been a good tool for *slow* backups. Tried to do a longer file copy and the throughput was a little over 1 Mb/sec on a 1 Gb link with 1 hop on a 1Gb switch. The NAS was configured in Raid0, which I think is as fast as it can get.
Summary: I bought this Buffalo Terastation to connect via NFS to my AIX unix machine. If you like backups that are slightly faster than transcribing your data by hand with pen to paper, if you like very slow administrative web pages, if you like products where only 1/2 the advertised features actually work,...
Summary: I have installed shared disks before and have always had difficulty with my collection of legacy equipment (Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7) talking with the same disk. But the software that came with the TeraStation seamlessly integrated with all the different systems and all have no problem...
Quick, decent build quality, a little too locked down

Summary: Honestly, I'd not have bought this if I didn't get a heck of a deal from Amazon Warehouse deals. I'd probably have built a MiniITX machine and put Linux on it instead, which is essentially what this is -- a small Linux server but without the ability to do in-depth management.
Summary: I have tried a lot of NAS brands and have settled on Buffalo. The feature set is what I need, but be aware they are not perfect. This is a back up unit they will stay in the box to provide coverage for the same unit in service.
