1 out of 5 eggsMy first Buffalo failure.

Pros: My 3 previous Buffalo NASs have been great through the years.

Cons: 1 of the 4 drives failed within 2 weeks of use.

Other Thoughts: No response from Buffalo tech support regarding a drive replacement/RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

Seattleman, did you call Tech Support? 866-752-6210. If it is a simple drive failure then you can just RMA the drive. If you have to RMA the whole unit then I suggest you do the RMA with Newegg (as long as you have not owned it longer than 30days). Otherwise you chance getting a refurbished unit sent to you.

If you have any questions or concerns please email me

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible product

Pros: Device was easy to configure. Web interface is nice. Notifications work and file transfer quick.

Cons: The only one, and the biggest one. Drive 3 failed after 3 weeks of use.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully got a bad one, but our data is too important to try this model again. RMA'd for a refund and we'll try another manufacturer.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat so far.

Pros: Lots of space, good speed, quiet.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this in June 2011 to run/back-up HD video projects. So far things have gone well. It's nice to have everything usable, accessible from multiple locations and backed-up, all in one.

There were some really bad reviews for this on another site recently, which kind of made me nervous, but so far I have no complaints. I'm hoping it was just the bad-experience-people who took the time to post and not the general overview.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: Very easy to setup! Directions are more than enough for any experienced tech guy. I get transfer speeds of 1GB a minute! everything on it works that I have tested (TimeMachine, iTunes Server, SFTP, Web GUI). The web GUI works with iPhone very well! BEST NAS for the PRICE!

Cons: Media server has changed to squeeze box and I don't like it compared to the original "easy" media server that worked great XBOX & PS3 etc.....

Other Thoughts: You MUST update the firmware before using to ensure best performance and functionality with MAC computers!!!
