Summary: I owe 2 terastations, after 2 years of doing my backups here the 1st went bad, error message on the front screen, called buffalo, obviosly out of warranty, so they pretty much said the terastation itself was bad, not the actual hard drives and that basically my only option was to throw them to the...
Summary: This particular unit is very troublesome for a novice. I love Buffalo products, but this one is not for beginners. Lucky for me I've setup multiple buffalo products so when it failed ootb, i knew exactly what to do. I didn't need to send it back to buffalo, it just needed to be reinitialized.
Summary: Terrible product and terrible support. After having this "Backup" device for 3 weeks it all of a sudden decided to start failing jobs. After about a month of fighting with tech support over the issue. A hard drive failed on the device. So no big deal send the hard drive back.
Been Satisfied and Tech Support has been Awesome for me and my experiences.

Summary: These are great. A lot of bad reviews, but I have been very happy with mine. It has had a few problems here and there, but I have found great tech support. I bought other products from Buffalo because their support. Experience has been great for me.
Summary: Nice unit for the money. For the most part, Buffalo makes quality products.
Pros: Very easy to setup up out of the box. Up and running in about 30 minutes. Also runs very quite.
Cons: This is the third Buffalo unit that I have owned. The problem is that I have never been able to get the web access to work. I have contacted tech support but they were less than helpful. It would be a nice feature if you could actually get it to work.

Summary: Compares very poorly with much less expensive NAS devices. Couldn't use it for shared files because it throws major write permission problems with every folder. After we upgraded every computer to Windows 7, we can't use it for backups anymore either. Everything about this thing is unexplainable.
Very easy setup out of the box and reliable little system

Summary: I would definitely buy a Buffalo product again and would recommend this to someone looking for a Home/Home Office NAS system. I do not use any streaming connectivity or try to use it for publicly hosting any files for others to access. I cannot give feedback on its performance in those roles.
Pros: I bought this to replace a dying HP Home Server that was primarily just being used as a NAS anyway. I have this for central storage for home and work, mapped as multiple drive segments, accessed by a Windows Desktop, a MacBook Pro (using Time Machine), an iPad, and two Android phones. It also ser...
Cons: I've had no issues with the system over this first year. (Knocks on wood).
