When I unpacked this unit I could hear loose parts rolling around inside it. I went ahead and set it up and copied data from the Buffalo Linkstation that I was using previously on to it. The copying was straightforward to set up and worked well. Only after doing that did I read a message on Buffalo's user forum where someone reported that his Duo had arrived with a loose screw inside it and that this had caused a short circuit after about a week. He advised anyone who received a unit with loose parts to return it immediately. I couldn't do that, having copied data on to it. Instead I opened the unit, handling it very carefully, and found three loose screws inside. I removed these and tried to remove the discs (they should just slide out) to see it there were any other loose screws but one of the discs was jammed, I suspect from a fourth screw, and could not be removed. On the basis that the unit was working and "if it isn't broken don't fix it" I re-installed the disc I had removed and connected the Duo to my network again. It continues to work satisfactorily after about a month.

From the point of view of being an easily used and easy to set up network storage and media server I would recommend this unit, but I would urge people to return it before installing it if there is any sign of poor manufacture.

I should add that, when I replied on the Buffalo user forum that I also had a unit with loose screws inside it, a Buffalo representative asked for the serial number of the unit so that they could check their manufacturing, so they did appear to take the report of poor quality seriously, and may have improved their quality control by now.

Would have been 5 stars except for the fact (It's on T'Web) it takes over 6 hrs PER Terrabyte to create a RAID 1 Array. The drive comes as RAID 0 as standard out of the box. Changing to RAID 1 (mirrored)and creating the 3TB Array, formatting and checking the drives took nearly 18 hrs. Read the manual and learn to decipher what the "Info/Error" flashing light means. It will save you scratching your head wondering what the drive is doing.I eventually left it overnight and into the next day until it had finished and reported "Normal". Then it is dead easy to use, add users and map drive letters to. iTunes server works well and anyone with a Squeezebox or Sonos wireless HiFi will have no trouble setting up and streaming around the house.

Almost all NAS get mixed reviews - some professional reviwers like this one, some don't.

Yes it's slower than some. If this is your first NAS and you have a lot of files to load then you might want to think about gigabit for at least 1 computer on your network and transfer files to that computer by external hdd. If not, allow a few days for loading the NAS.

For me, now that's done I'm well chuffed. What I want to move to, or from, the NAS comes fast enough on 100megabit ethernet.

It appears there is some question about reliability over the longer term and I might come back at some point with a tale of woe.

For now........highly recommended!

Update 17/1/12
Bought a recertified one four months ago. Apart from a couple of hard resets I've had no problems with it. Took an age to load it initially but I don't have gigabit.
Running it in raid 1 for peace of mind. 10gb Acronis image transfers in about an hour over wireless N. Streams video seamlessly.
This is my first NAS so can't compare it to higher priced units which may well be much, much better in every way. But I paid less than £100 and wouldn't have shelled out any more for a purchase which was not strictly necessary given I back up my critical files online.
Still highly recommended.

Noise: This does have a fan but I find it is generally very quiet and no problem on my desk in front of me.
Automatic power up and down: generally this works. When the last laptop on the network is closed down, the NAS powers down, and generally it restarts when we reboot in the morning. Occassionally it fails to restart automatically but cycling the power switch soon solves that.
Admin aplication: The admin tool works but takes a bit of trial and error, for instance setting up shares, as the manual is limited. It is probably best to assign a fixed IP address on your router. Then you can happily map a Windows network drive to the ip address, and don't necessarily need the NAS Navigator application which is blocked by the firewall on my work laptop.
Back up application: The supplied back up application works but I am not yet sure if it is any better than a DOS batch file and xcopy. There is also the RichCopy tool free from Microsoft that is worth investigating. I think I prefer to have straight file copy back ups rather than compressed files. The compressed files seem to be more suitable for spreading a backup across cdroms, or dvd.
RAID: This is the main reason for buying. I have configured the two discs to be mirrored, and I am relying on this to store my family photo album and music. I will also do a separate back up to another USB drive that can be connected direct to the NAS.
Music: I have found that Windows Media Player works very well. No trouble including NAS folders in the library. I-Player is a bit more complicated.
Overall: I am very pleased with this NAS. It provides a secure mirrored network storage that we can all access off the home LAN for a reasonable price. It is reasonably easy to set up if you have a bit of home pc knowledge.
