    I have previous experience with using the Buffalo drive, there are very reliable and the customer service is always very helpful even when the product is out of warrenty.

    Great Product and Works Like It Should

    I had never owned a Buffalo product, so I was a little reluctant to try them out. I'm glad I did. This works well and integrated into my network nicely. While the software is a bit clunky, the LinkStation works well once it is set up and accessible.

    It does what it says it will... It's a little tricky to get set up but once you do, it performs as described... I'm using it for a home Cloud/Storage center & for the price, well worth it...

    Unreliable, clunky, and not recommended

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    Backups to this device failed more often than the succeded. Normally I'd return a device that was a failure, but I can't fully destroy the data on the drive, so it potentially could cost me far more than the purchase price if someone was able to recover data I wrote to it. The software that you get with it is limited and very clumsy to use. I do *NOT* recommend this device.

    This is a very nicely made unit. Does not get hot like others I have had in the past. Set up is not too lengthy. Access speed is very fast. For the price this is the best drive out there.

    What's not to like, plug it in, works fine. Happens to be just what I wanted, save files from anything on my network. No problems, easy to install. Nothing negative found to date. Fast enough for me but I don't back up my entire computer!

    Because Microsoft keeps screwing with windows networking I needed a reliable way to share files with other computers on my network at home and this works just fine. I can access anywhere in my home and also remotely as long as I have WiFi. I have it hooked up as a LAN drive so if a device has access to the LAN it can see the drive. Love it and wish I had done this years ago.

    Nice drive

    Posted .

    I had a Seagate network drive that was dying. I was torn between a WD drive and this as a replacement. After reading the comments about setting up WD drives I went with this. It was easy to set up and has been working fine. Windows had troubles with the Seagate drive when referencing recent files. I've had no troubles with this drive. I set up backups with Carbonite and they've been working fine.
