Pros: First off, if you're looking for a simply plug and play router to upgrade your old one for the house, keep moving. This definitely can fill that space, however it offers a lot more options in order to make your experience as a router tech nerd perfect.
As with any other simple router, this comes pre-setup with a password ready to go for plug and play.
I've never had an issue with Buffalo prudtcs in the past, so I don't imagine I will any time soon with this either.
As far as an N300 router goes, this is at the top of it's class, however you're still buying an N300. This means shorter ranges and less data transmissions. I'd say the signal is relatively strong up to about 65ft. Subtract some if the signal needs to go through a floor or wall.
The router is meant for only 1 or 2 computers and a tablet. Not tons of traffic.
Cons: The price and the fact that it is now out of stock, most likely because it is an N300 which is now very obsolete in our new AC world.
I don't like the price because I can go out and get an N300 Netgear router from staples for 40$ and the only difference is the lack of customizations, which is why I state again, do not buy this unless customizing and learning are your goals.
This review is from: BUFFALO MiniStation Air 1TB Wireless Mobile Storage
Pros: What an amazing device. This is my first hard drive of this type and I love it. I have owned portable hard drives from buffalo in the past and they have not failed me yet. They also happen to be a bit cheaper than others, maybe because their name is more obscure, but thats not important.
First off, 1000 gigabytes is more than enough for even the most avid movie watcher. Hundreds of movies can fit on this device, same with TV shows. As far as ebook storage for an ereader or tablet, the number that can be stored is in the hundreds of thousands. Plus this device can be accessed from absolutely any device, not just portable devices like tablets or more specifically, ipads.
Mac, iphone, ipad, android, and windows all work perfectly with this product. Linux also most likely works, but I didn't have a version of it set up at the time to check.
The form of this HD is super thin and light which means leaving this in your purse or car and accessing it whenever you need to, say through your ipod to get some extra music for the day, it is always there.
Easily access all of your files and organize them from any device with a screen, and even easier through a laptop computer.
Cons: The price 100%. I completely understand that the price is justified since it's a new type of product which is extremely useful and combines old ideas to make new ones, which all costs money, but not many people are willing to drop over 150$ on a 1TB hard drive when they can just spend 80 and drop the wi-fi feature.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast speeds as far as regular hard drives go, reading and writing was smooth going both ways.
Easy installation as with all hard drives, just one power cable and a SATA cable to insert.
Plenty of space for any average user. If your idea of fun is downloading thousands of movies and video games, then you'll need a bigger hard drive. However, if your the average user that uses a computer for typing for school, email, social networking and the like, then this is perfect.
A great upgrade to any 320gb laptop hd. This one is faster than most and even comes with a little extra oomph to attempt to set itself apart from other hard drives.
Thinner than usual, though not by all that much, and it's not like you see it once its in the computer.
Cons: The price tag is the only con. I see where the money is going, but the matter comes down to the fact that once the hard drive is in the computer, a 2mm smaller design isn't going to make a difference, especially with upgrades. Because the casing the hd is inserted in to is already made for a larger hard drive, so obviously a smaller one can fit. Im sure other drives, cheaper ones, can complete the job nearly as well.
Other Thoughts: Ive tested this hard drive on two systems, my main desktop, as well as a 2 year old samsung laptop. As far as normal hard drives go, this is probably the best you can ever hope for. If you want the absolute best out of your computer, to squeeze every teeny bit of performance from it, this is the drive for you.READ FULL REVIEW
