Well worth the purchase

by Joe on 4/1/2012

I did my research and picked the Buffalo LinkStation Duo for my NAS choice and I have not been disappointed. There were some minor issues getting it all set up the way I wanted but Buffalo's tech support is great and very helpful. I would recommend this if you need a quality and reliable NAS.
