Cons: I've had this product since September 2014 and it just doesn't cut it. The actual speeds are nowhere near 80mb/s. Buffalo's fix was to use a recommended HDD which is insane but I bought into it and took the opportunity to upgrade so I got a WD Red 3TB drive. Exact same speeds with this drive. Decided I would try SSD Raid to really test the speed, still nowhere close to 80mb/s (on a direct gigabit ethernet connection).
Firmware out of box was garbage and made the EWS unbearably slow and the integrated DLNA server never worked. Buffalo's fix was to offer a replacement which I opted out of because I needed the storage and couldn't afford the down time. I managed to resolve the issues myself noticing a new firmware update was available on the website that the EWS did not find on it's own, nor did the tech from Buffalo suggest.
Shortly after I fixed the speed issues with the firmware the device put itself into Emergency Mode. The only way to resolve the issue was to set up the drive again and rewrite the firmware to it.. causing a loss of all data on the drive. (Yes, I know how to back things up.) Wrote it off as a one-shot and continued using it.
This week the device entered into Emergency Mode itself again, yet again causing a loss of all data. I keep backups of important information but having to go through all of these issues in only a few months is a huge waste of my time, even as a home user.
Other Thoughts: My previous review was far more favorable to the product and I wish I could retract it. I got this on sale for $119.99 CAD and feel incredibly bad for anybody who spends the full price which is now listed at $239.99 CAD.
I reached out to Newegg for help. Their idea of a resolution was to tell me to sell it on e Bay and buy a new one.
This review is from: SYBA SD-CM-UAUD USB 2.0 External Stereo Audio Adapter
Pros: Works great for my PS3. Sound quality is great.
Cons: None at the moment.
Other Thoughts: For anyone else planning to purchase this for the PS3 that has not set up a USB headset before: You need to go into your Settings under Accessory Settings and switch the input and output devices to your USB headset.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy setup. New firmware fixed extremely sluggish embedded web server. Decently priced at time of purchase (got this on sale for $119.99 a while ago).
Cons: Flimsy plastic drive bays and front door. Extremely slow transfer rates (11.3MB/s consistently) when using recommended internal drives (WD RED 3TB). Original firmware had an extremely slow EWS. Built in firmware check stated no available firmware but website showed new version was available. The built in DLNA server was a nightmare and could never get it to work. EWS would crash every time I enabled it and customer service could not help. Ended up saying screw it and going without it. Have not tried other built in services like print server or Bit Torrent yet.
Other Thoughts: Overall not extremely happy with the product but works well enough for what I need.
Biggest issue for me is the slow speeds when advertised as able to support up to 80MB per second.
