Excellent Media backup and sharing solution

PostedJanuary 26, 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
I purchased the linkstation to store my music, home videos, movies and even some college lectures. Setup was quick and easy. Setting up my firewall to access the linkstation was also easy. While I admin transferring the 800+ gig of multimedia files to the NAS was not fast at sub gigabit speeds but it was reliable with no dropped connections or overt packet loss. Where the unit shines was file delivery over the internet. I've got a an IP dedicated to a server I used to keep all my stuff on. The server died and I bought the Buffalo Linkstation to replace. Much easier than configuring multiple apps to do what I needed. The NAS has an explorer-like interface which gives me instant access to all my stuff and I've got a diverse range of files. The NAS never fails to deliver and in 6 months of daily streaming, uploading/downloading.. no failures.
Pros:streaming video, streaming audio, mobile backups

NAS Drive

This is the perfect solution to sharing your media with all your devices in the house. No longer do I have to leave my computer turned on to access my music on my PS3. It was easy to setup and is working great. I can even connect with my driod and steam music. Can also access my personal cloud from any where outside my house over the internet
Pros:streaming music

Setup was a litle tricky with my Dlink router, but kept searching forums and found fix. I couldn't be more pleased with it. Definately recommend.

Good value

PostedMay 11, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
This NAS is a good value for the home user or small business as long you are willing to be patient. While it has a great amount of storage space it does take a while to accomplish any task. Previous reviewers had mentioned the speed issues and I agree with them. I am very happy with the value and features of the unit.
Pros:data storage, data security

Easiest installation I have experienced.

PostedFebruary 27, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
I don't usually write reviews,but this device is the easiest thing I have ever installed. I changed the 2TB device to a 1TB device with full RAID protection and everything worked smoothly. If I need another device, this is the one I will buy. For the cost is great! Don't buy this at Best Buy. The device they had was the same price, but for a 1TB storage configuration. The Dell box had 2 1TB disks installed.
Pros:software development, home media storage

Silent but deadly!

PostedJune 2, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
This NAS is the quietest and most inconspicuous I've had to date. Set up was a breeze and was immediately recognized by (and conversed with) my Mac, PC and every computer that joined my network. I'm able to seamlessly transfer data to add to it's utility it has a built in print server that allows me to print wirelessly from the ocmputers on the network.
PROS: 2TB, Easy setup, Mac/PC compatibility, Memeo backup software included, small footprint, print server, whisper quiet, automatic shut-off (in auto mode).
CONS: Price, only 1 USB port
Pros:print server, data storage, itunes server
