This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

1 out of 5 eggsFrustrating

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No "function" button very frustrating if you have to restore to factory defaults. Buffalo NAS Navigator can find it, but can't actually talk to it. Perhaps there is a way to restore it, but if you can't find it after a few hours of googling then the product is bad.

Other Thoughts: cheap, but what you get is cheap

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Work initially. Software was easy to set up, including the backup software.

Cons: Became unrecognized after about 2 months.

Unfortunately I let it just sit for several months and it passed its warranty period. So no RMA for me. Thankfully I never set up too much to be backup or use this drive.

Save your money and/or buy another unit!

3 out of 5 eggsNAS... and only NAS

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: The system is highly customizable and configurable for any type of network. Works very well for NAS and media streaming alike, easily streaming audio and video to 3 different devices without as much as a stutter.

Cons: 1st one died. Needed to RMA less than 2 months into ownership upon a reboot after a firmware upgrade. And although Buffalo was fast in their responses to my support ticket, they certainly use generic responses, asking me to push reset buttons that just do not exist on this particular model. The "cloud" function is extremely unreliable. At best I Am able to access it for an hour or so before the interface becomes so unstable it will start to time-out so frequently that the web access is entirely unusable.

Other Thoughts: I thought i had trouble due to the structure and settings of my home network. After configuring the nas and router to the recommended settings, I quickly found that the instability is caused by the buffalo nas web interface. The communication between the unit and the buffalo web portal become so saturated that the nas interface becomes slow and unusable, DLNA becomes unstable through the ps3, although the mapped network drives do not slow down at all. While the web access is enabled, even logging in directly to the buffalo's interface locally via IP is painfully slow. The only remedy was to disable the web access all together. Once that was done, all of the remaining features exceeded my expectations of operability. (I'm probably more surprised than you are!)

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: none

Cons: Stopped working at about 6 months, fast blinking blue light and 3 emails to tech support went unanswered. I am now using a synology ds213j with two wd red drives and so far is working great, user interface is much better too, no software to install on your computer unlike the buffalo.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Product

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I purchased 2 units. First one failed 3 months ago. Second unit failed 1 week ago. Technical support made me repeat troubleshooting steps several times. RMA issue was a hassle, it took more than 6 weeks for repaired unit to arrive, . I won't send second unit for repair. I was responsible for paying shipping for their faulty unit.Very unreliable device. My client was very displeased with this purchase. I would not recommend this product. This is my first experience with Buffalo Tech and for sure the last.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Product Poor Service Don't buy!

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Inexpensive NAS device.

Cons: The unit I purchased suffers from either a firmware or hardware problem. It will sit on the network fine for days, but start copping files to it and it will drop it's connection and require power cycling to get it back up and running.

Tech support responded to the first email I sent them with a suggestion that didn't work and has ignored me since.

Manufacturer Response:

Please send me an email with your conact info so we could trouble shoot the device. You should also check your connections, it is possible that a loose cable could be the culprit.

thanks

2 out of 5 eggsGreat while it worked...

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Cheap, good features, easy to use

Cons: Unit bricked less than 6 months after use. Unit is just blinking a blue light and despite having tried the TFPT and other suggestions online I still can't access the unit. I'll be RMA'ing the device, but unfortunately will be stuck with the same HDD after it comes back. Very disappointed to say the least

2 out of 5 eggsProblems If You Forget Admin Password

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Reliable so far.

Cons: No way to to a factory reset if you forget your Admin password !
The instructions say there is a reset button - there is not. I am
an engineer, I disassembled the entire thing and there is no
button.

Manufacturer Response:

I can help you if you forgot your setup password. Send me an email so we can trouble shoot.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage (NAS) - LS-X2.0TL

Pros: Easy to do basic setup and use.
Buffalo's Tech Support is mostly hassle free and responsive.
Cost.

Cons: System is a bit antiquated in my opinion, and has some really stupid password requirements for users.
GUI is a poorly built and confusing for more advanced settings.
The whole thing failed on me in the first 4 months. (Multiple reboots, never acquired an IP address).

Other Thoughts: Cost is good, but think twice about Buffalo warranty. While they're RMA'ing my unit, I'm responsible to pay for shipping to them on THEIR failed unit. That's really annoying. It's unfortunate that this unit failed so quickly, and I really hope it's just a fluke, since I'll be up a creek if the next one dies shortly after my original warranty expires.
