5 out of 5 eggsEasy setup, fast drive

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation 420 2 TB 2-Drive (2 x 1 TB) High Performance RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server - LS420D0202

Pros: No problem to set up. Two TB of shared drive.

Cons: I've heard setting it up for outside access on a U-verse router is difficult.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews I read on another popular website complained about difficulties making it work with a U-verse router and that worried me. But all those problems rose from trying to set it up to be a private file server accessed from outside the home network. All we wanted was a shared drive everyone in the house could access. If we want access from outside, we'll spring for something a little more expensive. We wanted a nice fast central storage setup for the local network at a reasonable cost. We got it. We like it.

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation 420 2 TB 2-Drive (2 x 1 TB) High Performance RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server - LS420D0202

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome piece of hardware

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation 420 2 TB 2-Drive (2 x 1 TB) High Performance RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server - LS420D0202

Pros: Sits in my basement away from everything, Acts as it's own little cloud based system that I and others (who I give permission to) can access anytime, anywhere and from any device. It was relatively easy to setup, has an android app and has hot swap capabilities

Cons: Even though its a Raid system it has moving hard drives which can be a weakness for the long term. Other than that I really can't find any other cons...

Other Thoughts: Get this device or one like it if you want to control and manage your own stuff in the Cloud.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast

This review is from: BUFFALO LinkStation 420 2 TB 2-Drive (2 x 1 TB) High Performance RAID NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server - LS420D0202

Pros: Super CPU for the price: It is Armada 370 with FPU. Other machine with the same CPU is Synology 213J; it is $199 WITHOUT HDD at all; remember the brand new 1TBx2 is about $$129.
I had Qnap TS Turbo and Netgear with similar price but all speeds are slower than this 420.

Cons: The software is basic; there is no whistle and bell.
It is USB2. (however, it is NOT all hardware compatible with USB3). So, it is not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: If you want the basic NAS with Very powerful CPU in the class and price, this Linkstation 420 is the ONLY option available on the market.
