I brought this product purely for data backup as I have a number of PC's with different user accounts, and a Mac, and I wanted all data on them backed up centrally.

Summary: Overall it's a very good product. I have a number of minor (ish) gripes which if you are looking to do what I wanted to do, you will find annoying.

So, plus points:
It's nice and quiet
Basic operations simple to set up
It has lots of nice features such as web access and FTP
It works out of the box with no fuss. I did update the firmware as soon as I got it though just to ensure I had the latest
The in-built print server (works great with a Canon i865)
The concept behind Memeo's backup software (which comes with it) is really neat. See below though

So what I don't like:
The web admin is rather clunky. It does the job, but isn't pretty and is painfully slow to navigate around it
The only browsers supported today are IE and Firefox. I learnt the hard way using Google Chrome that some vital options simply don't work under Chrome. For example you cannot change read only access to read write/access with it
The idea of being able to access files via a browser appealed. The web access is really really basic and not nice to use. Again, it works, but lacks any kind of polish. Really silly things like no Logout button on the web access once you are authenticated. If you the close the browser down, and then re-start another it simply logs you back in with no authentication. Not good if you want to use on a public browser.
I have not been able to change the admin port of the buffalo off port 80. That means to access your data via the web you need to add a port number (e.g.

What I use it for

As well as storing data files (word documents, visual studio projects, etc) I wanted a NAS with good media serving features. I have an Xbox 360, a Playstation 3 and a Roku Soundbridge that I wanted to be able to stream music, videos and photos to.

My music is an iTunes library of Apple Lossless files (around 30mb a track). I have currently loaded about a third of my CDs into the library which is now approx. 4,000 tracks/102GB. This NAS serves this library flawlessly - I've never had it skip or respond in a slow manor. You can get a momentary pause while loading the track listing for the first time (I tend to find all 4000 tracks take around 3/4 seconds).

I have around 60,000 photos which stream to my Playstation 3 no problem. Many of the photos were taken on my Digital SLR (high quality JPEGs - often around 8/9mb a file). There is a delay (few seconds) when loading these files, but my PS3 is currently operating over wireless, so this is likely to be a big contributor - the JPEGs load quickly on my wired desktop (100Mbit) from the file share.

Videos I don't have many of. The aim is to put a lot of the kids films/tv programmes on here so they don't ruin the original discs! I have yet to do this, but I have put a few test videos in the form of divX files and a couple of high definition camcorder clips. These worked fine on the PS3.

Speed

Being a software developer and IT/gadget geek my family have 3 desktops, a laptop, a Soundbridge, a 360, a PS3 and an iPhone all using this NAS. It seems to manage without problem with the very basic tests I've performed (making all devices stream music, browse shares, etc, at the same time).

Decided to make the purchase after taking a long hard look at the market, and I am very pleased with it.

It's way smaller than I imagined, and very quiet in operation. The 1TB drive space is much bigger than I need, but as the years go by, I'm always finding new excuses to fill drive space... mainly because I hoard downloads.

Super easy setup, and software included is not bad. I'm using it on a home network and plan to open up the full software package to allow other family members to be able to share over the net. It has an easy to use web interface for admin duties, and isn't too technical. User interface is well laid out, and all the setting changes are where you might expect them to be.

It might be a little pricey for some people, but I'm looking at it as a long term investment. I'm often working away from home, and like the fact that I can access my media from anywhere. To be honest, there's loads more an experienced user will get from one of these, but I'm happy with what I bought it for.

My only warning would be not to fiddle too much with the settings. Of course, I did and found myself having to wind-back and reinstall a few features before it worked the way I wanted, but I suppose that's the same with anything of this nature. So, if you do decide to get one of these, just follow the setup instructions and don't go crazy trying to work out what it does before reading the manual.

Overall, I'm very happy with this product, and I'm sure I'll get loads of use from it over the next few years.
