Pros: Dual NIC
Cons: The unit is unreliable. My unit has eaten up two drives in about 3 months. Warranty process with Buffalo takes 1 month for advance RMA, so don't use in heavy production environment. The unit doesn't seem to auto power-on after a power failure (there's a toggle switch on the back, but that doesn't seem to change anything).

Good NAS, but not great
Pros: Good price, over a year of uptime with no issues, quiet, audible alarms for disk failure and high temperature, easy to install and configure, dual gigabit LAN, great performance, and AD integration
Cons: Unable to set NTFS/AD permissions on shares and sub-folders, firmware cannot be updated easily as on a router and requires you to run a special program on a PC with administrative privileges, the firmware update utility only auto-scans for the NAS and fails if any little thing is not perfect and does not allow you to manually enter the NAS IP address, and poor English and grammar in some areas
Other Thoughts: Despite being joined to our AD domain, the unit does not allow me to set NTFS permissions on the shared folders and files. You can log into the NAS and assign an AD group or users to a share, but the only permissions are read-only or read and write. This populates down through everything on the share. Attempting to change any permissions, even as the domain admin, fails. This makes it impossible to use for a redirected documents setup on the domain, which is why it was purchased. For the past year however, it has served only to hold ISO images and backup data due to the insane limitation on permissions. If you do not need to restrict access to your shares, this is a great box. It has little pplace in a production environment however.
