1 out of 5 eggsBuffalo HD-QL8TU3R5

Pros: 8TB

Cons: Always goes to sleep and takes about 3 seconds to spin back up.
Bundled software is supposed to control if the drive sleeps or not and when, but it has no effect on the device.
Devices freezes all the time - unable to wake up or access without physically restarting
Bundled backup software is old, poorly designed and very hard to use.
No updates from the company - seems they are abandoning fixing any issues with the software or drive.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this hoping it would be of equal quality and usefulness as my older Buffalo Terastation (latter is a NAS not USB). As it turns out, the greatest flaw is the one thing it lists as a plus - green. This is NOT a drive for daily or frequent use. The drive is only useful if you only plan to do occasional backups. For daily use, it is worthless junk.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great Price, Setup, Reliability, tool and utility maint apps included are decent also. Have many 4-12TB drivestations installed for 1yr+ and have yet to have a failure.

Cons: comes with Western Digital Green Drives, but after 8 months of 24/7 usage not one failure or issue

Other Thoughts: for what it is, cost/price buffalo has made me a lifelong buyer of this quality product.
