Cons: I haven't yet run into a con - but only had them for a few weeks too. I've been very happy so far.
Other Thoughts: I'm now sold on BenQ monitors. This is my first one and I'll buy this brand again. Impressed by the solid quality and thought put into the feature set and construction.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BUFFALO HD-QL8TU3R5 8TB (4 x 2TB) DriveStation Quad USB 3.0 Four-drive storage
Cons: Always goes to sleep and takes about 3 seconds to spin back up.
Bundled software is supposed to control if the drive sleeps or not and when, but it has no effect on the device.
Devices freezes all the time - unable to wake up or access without physically restarting
Bundled backup software is old, poorly designed and very hard to use.
No updates from the company - seems they are abandoning fixing any issues with the software or drive.
Other Thoughts: Purchased this hoping it would be of equal quality and usefulness as my older Buffalo Terastation (latter is a NAS not USB). As it turns out, the greatest flaw is the one thing it lists as a plus - green. This is NOT a drive for daily or frequent use. The drive is only useful if you only plan to do occasional backups. For daily use, it is worthless junk.READ FULL REVIEW
