It just works,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buffalo LinkStation 420 LS420D0202-EU 6TB (2 x 3TB) 2 Bay Desktop NAS (Accessory)
This is the first NAS drive I have ever bought, and I hate hardware problems so I did quite a bit of research first.
I ended up buying two. One for my business network, and one for the home network.
This unit is absolutely brilliant. The admin control panel which comes installed is logically laid-out and simple to use. Configure users & passwords, and assign which folders each user (or all users) can access.
Just put a DLNA app on your phone(s) or tablet(s), and instantly, everything on a network just sees the drive straight away (subject to the permissions you set already set up).
The first evening I was streaming a movie from the NAS drive, wirelessly, to my Android phone.
DLNA SmartTVs etc see it straight away.
The admin control panel contains a back-up facility - this item's best feature. It backs-up either to itself, or online, or to another Buffalo unit.
Opens up all kinds of possibilities.
