Pros: Small footprint, quick setup and so far flawless function with multiple laptops and smartphones. Inexpensive solution for home use with enough guts to support business print requirements.
Cons: Given its super lightweight construction I can only guess as to its long term durability. Not so much a Con as it is an observation.
Other Thoughts: This is working out as a great solution for printing from laptops, never did like using docking stations or USB cables in order to print. No print servers or hardwiring of the printer that would limit its placement, fits on a small bookshelf or any convenient location.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Central STCG2000100 2TB Cloud Storage System
Pros: Bare bones consumer NAS to store and backup data. Easily setup for basic access to content, and works as advertised.
Cons: The remote access "Tappin" is dreadful! Slow does not describe how awful this choice of sevrvice is. Despite my best efforts to stream content locally on a gigabyte hardwired connection the unit still buffers every 2 seconds. What's up with this?
Other Thoughts: This replaced a Buffalo unit that bricked on me, (I'd never give them another cent for their products) but when it worked, it performed. Seagate has some work to do on this product to make it the device people want / need.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO LS-V2.0TL 2TB LinkStation Pro LS-VL Network Storage
Pros: Sleek looking, easy setup, decent interface and ease of file access.
Cons: Sadly these thing are notorius for becoming bricks. Firmware fails leave the content unaccessible and unit "bricked" Buffalo has no support to speak of, and will not look at any unit outside of the warranty period. No way to reset the unit once it fails -
Other Thoughts: It's too bad that these drives fail at the rate they do, just look at their forums to confirm this, when it worked it was a great product, but when firmware fails there's no recovery. Will replace with a different manufacturer, a sad fact of how Buffalo supports their products.READ FULL REVIEW
