I only wish I could have afforded the Quad!
Pros: Fast Performance. Media server. Time Machine compatible.
Cons: Takes a long time to format and verify the RAID array after reconfiguring it.
Other Thoughts: This is my second Buffalo NAS device and I am even more thrilled than I am with my first one. I have recommended these to friends who all love them also. The built-in media server works great with my Blu-Ray player, even though both are wireless. I use Time Machine with it--again wireless--to back up multiple MacBooks. I reconfigured the RAID array to do mirroring for the ultimate in redundancy for my backups. I haven't tried music yet with iTunes but hear from a friend that it works well. My other Buffalo NAS is an old Terastation 1TB that after a few years I upgraded to 2TB by myself. I replaced all the drives and also upgraded the firmware. I have not had any problems with it after 5 years or so. The only con was formatting and verifying the array after I replaced the disks.

Pros: Newegg's customer service is top notch, getting full refund including payed shipping. I love Newegg
Cons: Shipped DOA, I will now never trust anything made by a Buffalo.
Other Thoughts: can't understand how something like this could happen. I checked Buffalo's web site for the error code it was flashing. It would seem they shipped it with a Corrupted firmware that would never work.
