Nice small unit easy to conceal and really quiet.

Software loads easily and initial setup getting started for administrator rights are easy too. Setting the unit to RAID 1 was straight forward but took an age to complete. Once the RAID is set, user accounts and folder set up also nice and easy. The most troublesome bit was setting up the web access with my Virgin Superhub. The Buffalo instructions wasn't too helpful here, I had to google and troubleshoot the problems I had. With another router it may connect ok I don't know. Once connected having given my Linkstation a name it worked beautifully. The speed of the connection is good and loading music and documents are pretty quick too.
The good: Linkstation is easy to access and transfer speeds via Windows 7 are generally very good.
The bad : RAID takes ages to setup. Uploading files over the web particularly films are slow, not easy to get it to work with the Superhub.
Overall a good unit which is compact and quiet and reasonably priced.
