Not worth it

Pros: It'll work for warranty period, and works pretty well too

Cons: I was expecting something that would last. As long as at least my computer, but a pair of headsets used by wrestlers seems to have more of a lifespan than this. Just bugged out one day and doesn't register anymore. Took really good care of it too, and now its just a $150 paperweight. Not happy whatsoever, was under the impression I could trust this product with old photos, backups, videos. If your looking for a long term solution or storage for those things, DON'T USE THIS.

Died with no warning after 22 months, can't recommend it

Pros: -Decent price

Cons: -Short warranty
-Out of nowhere died after 22 months

Other Thoughts: Luckily I had my important data on 2 of my internal drives, not just this external. I just plugged in a 7 year old Western Digital external to copy my important data over (since this one failed) and the drive booted up fine and still works flawlessly (after 7 YEARS). I was under the impression BUFFALO was high quality but only lasting 22 months is totally unacceptable. Will avoid brand in the future.

Mine lasted 2 months past the 1 year warranty before having errors. Buffalo support told me that I was on my own since the warranty had expired.

Pros: It lasted up to the warranty expiration (1 year)

Cons: It wont work any longer after the expiration period (1 year)

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend Buffalo drive stations. I am surprised that they wouldn't make a (2 month) after warranty exception, and repair mine... but they didn't. I've learned a good lesson today.

Was good, died right before a year.

Pros: Works when it does. Small form factor for such a large drive.

Cons: I've been using this as an external backup drive for my QNAP NAS system. It starting getting write errors after maybe 9 months or so, so I reformatted and they went away. Then they appeared again - I should have been more aggressive in returning it under warranty and now it's too late.

Other Thoughts: All hardware has some % of failed units so maybe I was just unlucky. I like the Buffalo brand but bought another brand for a replacement.

Buffalo Drive

Pros: It worked when I installed it. Can't remember If I put much data on it.

Cons: It died after hardly any use. Unplug when not used. This is not an archival quality hard drive. It can be used to block your truck on the driveway. Other than that, don't buy this product. I hope that I can save the data. It was never moved except for install.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend. A waste of $150.00. Maybe I have been lucky, but I have never had a drive go out and is dead dead like this one is.

Doesn't Work Work With XP

Pros: None

Cons: Despite Buffalo's email & phone reps telling me they were still using the XP chip set AND the box stating XP compatible; they are now using the non-XP chipset & XP will only recognize it with partitioning software to create multiple small partitions.

Worked great. Then Died

Pros: Fast data transfers

Cons: Other than becoming a doorstop none.

Other Thoughts: This drive worked for about a year but after relocating it must have gotten damaged in the move. It was packed very securely and I moved all my own property so I know it was handled properly. The drive would not power up at all after the move. I may buy another one as it worked great at the time.
