BUFFALO TeraStation ES 4-Bay 4 TB (4 x 1 TB) RAID Network Attached Storage (NAS) - TS-XE4.0TL/R5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs TeraStation looses connectivity often 08/31/2012

This review is from: BUFFALO TeraStation ES 4-Bay 4 TB (4 x 1 TB) RAID Network Attached Storage (NAS) - TS-XE4.0TL/R5

Pros: Has four (4) Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive in a RAID5. This was the primary reason I bought this unit. I wanted fast (SATAIII) HDDs in a RAID 5 at a reasonable cost. I have worked with and recommended to dozens of my customers the Buffalo LinkStation as a NAS backup solution. I even wrote a Linux based backup script that works very well for doing ftp transfers from a Fedora and CentOS based server to NAS. So I know the Buffalo Web based interface very well. I received this BUFFALO TS-XE4.0TL/R5 4TB TeraStation ES NAS 8/29/12. I installed software on my WINXP PC and I also was able to access the unit via Web browser on my CentOS server. I set it up like I have done for my customers. Turned power button on back of unit to 'manual'. I went to 'System' then 'Power Management' and made sure 'Sleep Timer' was disabled and 'HDD Spindown' was disabled. So essentially I didnt want it to go into sleep mode or spin down the hard drives

Cons: The problem has been since day 1 that I lose Web based connectivity to the NAS device and I have to restart it often while in in there working on settings or looking around in Web interface. So it's not like the there is inactivity that is causing my connection to get lost. I have an external 2TB HDD with only 130GB of data that I need to copy to the Terastation. I started copying the data the same day (8/29/12) and to this day (8/31/12) I still have only been able to copy 58GB of data. The problem is I keep losing network connectivity. Getting a 'resource is no longer available' pop up error message often. At that point the Web based connection is lost too. If I try to reconnect then I get nothing. Usually I have to wait from a few minutes to 10 minutes before I can reaccess the NAS device then resume copying data from my USB drive to the NAS device. Note that the USB drive is connected to a WINXP PC and not directly to the NAS USB port.

Other Thoughts: I was really excited to get this unit and show it off to my Linux sys-admin co-workers. I was very happy to learn Buffalo uses Linux.I work for a pharmacy software development company with 3800 pharmacies we support using Linux servers. So I work with a bunch of Linux geeks.I have the unit in the office on a Gigabit network. It has the latest firmware v1.57. Buffalo forums no help with the constant connectivity dropping problem. Any helpful solutions? Buffalo people, you reading this...???

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I swaped out my IDE DVD burner for this SATA burner. Reading a DVD movie for analysis went from 2-3 minutes (IDE) to less than 30 seconds for the SATA DVD burner. Creating an image went from 30-45 minutes (IDE) to less than 10 minutes for the SATA DVD drive. Burning a DVD with Nero went from 15 minutes (IDE) to less than 8 minutes with the SATA DVD burner. Installation was easy. I'm glad I installed 2. This is a great DVD burner.

Cons: None.
