2 out of 5 eggsOn Second Thought...

Pros: (As mentioned in my previous review)

Cons: Just like the other reviewer, the power supply in one Buffalo hard drives failed as well. I am fairly certain that the hard drives still work, but I will have to check later. This drive is way too expensive to have reliability issues like this. This drive started off great (6TB, RAID 0/1, USB 3.0), but only lasted a few months. I might be going back to my 'other brand' for externals now, the more reliable one.

Other Thoughts: Great drive when it works.

3 out of 5 eggs3 months later . failed Power Supply failed

Pros: USB 3.0, Large Capacity

Cons: After less than 3 months, the power supply inside the hard drive case case failed!? I now have to send it back for warranty service and find another 3 TB enclosure so I can transfer the data off my Buffalo drive.

I own 5 different external hard drive cases (4 Western Digital, 1 Adaptec) and I haven't every had a failure like this before. Maybe I got a bad one, but beware.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive!

Pros: Great storage amount - 6 TB (2x 3 TB)
USB 3.0
Multiple RAID options
Included RAID management software (BUFFALO Tools)

Cons: Price (compared to bare internal drives)

Other Thoughts: This is a great drive! Although buying 2 3TB internal HDDs would be cheaper, I needed an external drive to backup games and movies. I have had this drive for several weeks and have had no issues so far. I have not used all of the RAID options, only RAID 0 (data striping), which suits my needs just fine. I have also purchased the BUFFALO USB 3.0 PCI Exress Interface Card, which enables my computer to fully utilize USB 3.0 speeds. This drive is 5 stars in my book, a definite buy!
