Died Young, No Replacement

Comments: A perfect case in how to treat a customer poorly. The drive only cost us $189, but we spent thousands in recovery, time, effort and frustration. Spent over a year trying to get event the original broken device back from their RMA department with no luck.
We've since had an LG which was exceptional, and upgraded to a 4TB NetGear which is also exceptional.

The Buffalo is a beast

Comments: I wish I would have bought a bigger one, but I don't think any are available.

Surprisingly slow

Comments: I only have USB 2.0 right now, but I bought this figuring that my next PC would have USB 3.0 and I would already have a drive to take advantage of it. Perhaps someone who has used it with USB 3.0 could correct me if I am mistaken, but I have a tough time believing that transfers would be any faster with USB 3.0. This drive is easily the slowest external USB drive that I own (5 others dating back 5 years), and doesn't come close to saturating a USB 3.0 connection. I have used it to transfer data between two new Alienware desktops and 2 Dell Precision laptops and it is slow on all of them. Maybe the problem is just that the 2 TB drive inside is slow, but I didn't buy this with 2 TB just to swap it out and use the enclosure.

Manufacturer Response:
Rory, please contact me to troubleshoot your drive. Refusing to power up while other drives are connected does not make sense since the unit has its own power supply and is not pulling power from the USB port. Also the speed should be normal 2.0 throughput it the power light is green. If the power light is Blue then it means that it is connected using the USB3.0 speeds and should be much faster.

Thanks

Great Drive

Pros: Fast and quiet.

Cons: Would have liked a power button. I don't like having it run all the time, but it does go to sleep when my computer does

Other Thoughts: Did not buy this from Newegg because they did not have it when I wanted it a couple of months ago. Glad to see they have it now.
