BUFFALO LinkStation Duo 2-Bay 2 TB (2 x 1 TB) RAID Network Attached Storage (NAS) -  LS-WX2.0TL/R1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: My intended use: Local back up of photos, music, and documents from both Windows 7 based PC and Mac Book Pro connected via my router

It supports both Apple and Windows including TimeMachine. I like the fact that I can have a separate directories for Windows based files, Apple based files and or a combination of both.

Looks great and is quiet.

Cons: This is not Buffalo's issue so much but getting TimeMachine to work with my MacBook Pro took some digging and flipping of many switches. Getting TimeMachine to work with a non Apple HDD is not without a head ache or two.

Any file set over 10Gb you would be better off being connected to the router. Wireless transfer for large files is very slow. My initial TimeMachine back up is 300GB in size and would take over 2 days via wireless.

It auto updated the firmware 1.52 to 1.54 automatically and rebooted. Only by looking on Buffalo's website did I realize ,accidentally, there is firmware update 1.64 which was not automatically recognized. I had to manually download and install. Not a big deal but it should have updated to the latest version.

Other Thoughts: I like the fact that you can switch HDD easily, mounts like a normal directory. I have no need to use this as a personal cloud device but rather a back up my images and music for my home computers.

Just because you create a new shared folder doesn't mean the local admin account automatically gets Read & Write access. You have to explicitly define permissions to newly created shared folders outside of the default 'share' that comes already created.

The device takes a minute or so to wake up from sleep when in Automode. I first thought it was broken but one has to be patient.

Pros: My wife's HDD crashed. It was a 120GB 5400RPM HDD. I replaced it with this HDD and reloaded Windows 7. The installation process took half the time. I would never go back to a 5400 RPM HDD.

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: My mitre saw is Hitachi and now my HDD in my wife's laptop is Hitachi clever Japanese!!!
