4 out of 5 eggsBuffalo Drivestation backup drive

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 2TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC2.0U3

Pros: Easy to install, quiet, small foot print, fast USB 3.0 connection. The drive is working well.

Cons: Included backup software is very basic only allowing for full backup. No choices at all. I took off one egg for the lack luster backup software.

Other Thoughts: This is a nice backup drive, however the included backup software is bare basic and only allows for one backup type and that is a full backup. There is a continues setting but it does not allow for any custom settings. The only other choice is to set up a timed backup. You can set multiple times but this software really needs to have more options.

The drive deserves 5 eggs but the lack of a better backup program removes one egg making this review a 4 egg rating.

Most people will more than likely have a backup program they like and by pass the included program.

I do recommend this drive as it looks and feels well built.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints, Faster Than my Samsunmg D3 Station

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 2TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC2.0U3

Pros: The case was smaller than I expected. I recently bought a Samsung D3 Station and expected it to be about the same size, but the BUFFALO (HD-LC2.0U3) was more compact. The read/write speed was about 15% higher than my D3 Station too, but that was not a true concern, because I use them as external backups, but faster is better, right?

Cons: I didn't really have any cons with this item. It has been a couple months, with no issues, so for me, no complaints.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it to other people. I think the price of the drive is starting to get out-dated in comparison to many other options, but I am sure the smaller form factor and higher speed attributes to the higher cost variance.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent gear for the price

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 2TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC2.0U3

Pros: Compact and quiet. Okay build quality. Decent price. Does the job. Bada boop. Bada beep. Bada bip.

Cons: Can't easily open the unit. I tried, but it put up too much of a fight so I let sleeping dogs lie. One egg deduction from the Russian judge for that.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it so far

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 2TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC2.0U3

Pros: I got it for my xbox one because I ran out of space and it worked perfectly. My xbone recognized it and formatted it without any problems and i was able to transfer games over to free up some space on the internal hard drive. it transferred pretty quick too. much quicker than the actual installing of the game. I also like that it lays flat vs. standing upright like the WDHD's do.

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsGreat external backup drive

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 2TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC2.0U3

Pros: Small, easy to connect, fast, USB 3.0, looks good, good price (I snagged one while it was on sale)

Cons: I wish I would have bought this last year _before_ my hard drive died. :-(

Other Thoughts: It does what it says it will, and I now have fully automatic backups of my machine. Other reviews cover lots of good details. for the price, this is a great unit.

Fast
Lots of storage space (2 TBs)

Cons: I can only think of one small issue. Power cord is short (For my desk area)
