Not much luck with this. I was very excited to get one and went to set it up and it never could get recognized on my network. It could have been my router, but the documentation for the NAS was so limited, I couldn't effectively diagnose the problem. Called support, technician had an attitude. I told him the light on the front was solid blue. He said "Oh, then the unit is broken, the light should be green." After I got off the phone, I re-read the QuickStart guide and it indicated that everything is OK if the light is solid blue! Also, after reading the fine print, I noticed that the internal drives are not "user-replaceable". Forget it! I'm giving it a ranking of 2 because it looks cool.

-A customer quote

I purchased the Buffalo LinkStation for a client who wanted an inexpensive NAS unit and I found it meets their needs very well. I had no problems setting it up on their network. The software (included) discovered the unit right away and everything else was relatively automatic. I set it up as RAID 1 for redundancy and data security. If they had needed more storage I probably would have gone with a different unit other than use RAID 0. I would say this isn't the fastest of units but it does fine overnight backing up muliple PC's.
