There's a reason it's cheap !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buffalo LS-X3.0TL-EU 3TB LinkStation Live Desktop NAS (Personal Computers)
It's bad enough that the drive is slow when copying files across and the interface was obviously designed by someone on work experience who'd never seen a computer before. I only wanted to use it as a drive for storing my DVD and CD rips, so I can use them from every device in the apartment, so it wasn't in for a hard life.
The first drive failed and after much to-ing and fro-ing, Amazon replaced it with a new drive, which has just failed again !
It isn't run for 24 hours a day and I don't 'cane' it when I do use it. Looking around the various forums, it would seem it's an all too common fault. Buy cheap, get cheap :/
Luckily, after the first failure and subsequent re-rips, I bought a backup USB drive, but it's still going to be a hassle trying to engage Buffalo and get it replaced again. Maybe it's better to just give up and use it as an ugly paperweight instead.
