I bought the 3TB version of this NAS drive and have been very disappointed with it, when it worked the drive was very slow at copying data to it, the web interface was poor, complicated and very slow.

After copying most of my video files to it so I could stream them using the inbuilt DLNA server it was mostly fine however you could not rewind or fast forward unless you changed the client type, this would reset back to default each time the unit would switch off which was a pain.

After about 2 months of ownership it asked to do a firmware update, I started of the update and it failed part way through, this slowed the drive down to a crawl when trying to copy data over.

I rebooted it 3 or 4 times and then although it was on the network I could not detect the drive and it went into Emergency Mode which means it is booting of the flash drive not the hard drive.

I rang up Buffalo support who were less then helpful and said to download the manual updater from their website and reflash it, I tried doing this and now the drive will not even boot into Emergency Mode.

I rang up Buffalo support again who advised to switch the unit of and on at least 20 times to simulate a power cut and it should go into Emergency Mode, I have tried this and it will not go into Emergency Mode, after consulting the forums I have tried one or two things but it appears as if the drive is now bricked and un-recoverable due to a failed firmware update.

I have used other network drives before and never had these kinds of problems, it is cheap but its the age old saying you pay for what you get.

I would seriously recommend spending that bit extra and looking at a different manufacturer as I have been very disappointed with this drive and lost a lot of data that was on it which is un-recoverable.

This product works well as a simple NAS with LAN access. However, remote access and timer control are beset with problems.
There is no remote power on for this model. This restricts the timer control to save and restore power; it can be set to power down at a chosen time, but must be manually powered up again.

There is bug (firmware 1.57) that causes port 9000 used by web access to disappear after a few accesses in quick succession which causes all remote access to fail. This problem can also cause the 'registration' process with buffalonas.com to constantly fail during setup. I discovered this problem by using a port scanner on the NAS IP address. If port 9000 is absent after a port scan, apply a software reset or shutdown, followed of course by a manual power cycle.

It is an entry level product, it is clearly flawed and there are still bugs. Until Buffalo address its problems its role may be limited to LAN access only.

The only good thing about this NAS is that Technical Support are easy to get hold of. But by gosh do you need them.

I have now had this for three months and am having to return it, as despite 20-30 phone calls to Tech Support taking hours of my time, they have admitted that they can't get the Web Access feature to work. The guy I spoke to at Buffalo just recommended I return it, and send them a complaint for having kept me hanging for 3 months until admitting less than a week before Christmas that they can't find a fix after all. VERY VERY BAD!

Have had this for a while now, and while it did work quite well with Mac OS 10.6 it is mostly incompatible with Mac OS 10.7 Lion. You can access the NAS but transfer speeds are less than 500k per second, making it unusable in everyday situations. I wouldn't recommend any m0Mac user buy this product until Buffalo sort out the problems.

I've owned this product for about a month, and like other reviewers I have had a few problems with the system becoming unresponsive (the politically-correct term for 'crashed'). The new version of the firmware (1.61) appears not to have improved things. I now understand why Buffalo supply an an on-off switch that can be daisy-chained to the power lead.

The "power management" feature appears not to manage power. The web pages are confusing. To be specific, by default, the system is ON, so one would expect the power management events to specify when the system goes Off. But they specify when the system comes ON. My confusion is this: what would be the behaviour of a single-day power management event, say set for Tuesday, that wakes at 22:00, and begins sleep at 25:00 ? Does the system commence sleep at 00:00 on Tuesday, and only wake at 22:00? Or what time does sleep start prior to me setting the wake time? And what does that imply for Wednesday's sleep time? Does the system sleep for the whole of Wednesday, or how else will the setting "begin sleep at Tuesday 25:00" be interpreted?

The disk does not spin down. This should be the main thing that power management does, but instead the power management just stops the system responding. Having the disks spin down after some (configurable) minutes of inactivity would be useful and eco-friendly, and with my usage patterns, probably good for disk life. Having them spin down at specific, configurable times would be tolerable. This NAS doesn't do it.

There is no wake-on-lan. You have to switch the whole unit off then on again if it happens to be sleeping when you want to use it. (By 'sleeping' I mean being unresponsive but with the disk still spinning.) And so you have to wait for the system to boot up after that.
