4.0 out of 5 stars works well. bright lights, 24 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as a little present for my 'now ex'. So she never got it at Christmas. Great job, only good thing I got out of the relationship. :)

Works well. Bright lights. You've two led lights in it, one for low, and the other on for high. Bit bulky though.

I know you could download these online, but I don't think you can go wrong for the money. Worth it to have it on one CD. Take it out every Christmas! The man makes Christmas...legend.

4.0 out of 5 stars still a classic, 24 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reservoir Dogs (Blu-ray)
Looks great on Blu-Ray, I was expecting worse for an old-ish movie. Still such a classic film with some of the best one-liners ever. And the soundtrack in the movie is just brill under Dolby Digital. It's such a raw and involving movie. Watching it on b-ray, really makes the difference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great job., 10 Oct. 2010
I bought the 2TB, but it's the exact same system.
It's my first NAS, so can't truely compare, but it seems an excellent piece of kit.
It's much smaller than I thought, about same size as a 3.5" external H'drive. it looks very neat.
It's very quiet too. You even get extra little rubber feet to stick on the bottom to reduce possible vibrations.
Manufacture date on the box was Sept '10, so I knew I was getting the latest rev'd device from Amazon.

Just to put the record straight, it does work with Win7. The set-up is easy and flawless with all the systems I installed on (XP, Win7, PS3).
Although with the PS3, you have to go in to the Buffalo interweb software settings that comes with it, and "enable" media server for it to work. The PS3 doesn't pick it up otherwise. It's all in the manual, which is long, but thorough.

It says in the manual, Printer-server feature won't work woth 3-1 Printers, but it found my Canon 3-1 Printer and works fine. Great having this function to print from anywhere in the house. May not work with yours though.

Also, with this latest rev, the "auto power" funtion does work well. The NAS goes in to sleep mode when no PC's are detected on the router. When you power on your laptop/PC, the NAS powers up automatically.
Only problem is, if you only turn on your PS3, the NAS can't detect this, so you have to set the power switch to "on" for the PS3 to pick up the media server. Takes about a minute to boot up and be seen on the network.

On the read speed, I ran a High-Res 3gig movie wirelessly (54mb/sec) from the NAS to my netbook, and there were no problems at all. Didn't pause or freeze once.
I've got my PS3 hard wired, with a 100M router, all seems perfect for streaming. No buffering or pausing seen.
I'm going to upgrade to a GIG Router and run Cat6 cables, for full HD streaming and faster transfer speeds.

As for the transfer speeds, it's slow, but what I expected, averaging about 8mb/sec through the 100mb network on large files. Transfered about 200gig of movies overnight no problems.
Speaking of which, don't use the flat cable in the box. It's meant to be used just to download the software, nothing more. Invest in a Cat5e cable for regular use.

Haven't tried the USB transfer speed yet, or using the device as a external h'drive for that matter.
Have the printer attached to the USB port, makes printing easy, and the manual is well laid out on how to do it right.

Can't think of anything else to praise it on. I just hope it stands the tests of time. I only have it a week.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great job., 10 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have this NAS nearly 2 years now. Still working fine. Even survived a drop from the window sill recently. Cover came apart, but snapped back in to place, and it kept on working. It's small and neat, about same size as a 3.5" external H'drive.

It does work with Win7. The set-up is easy and flawless with all the systems I installed on (XP, Win7, PS3).
Although you have to go in to the Buffalo interweb software, and "enable" media server for the PS3 to work. The PS3 doesn't pick it up otherwise. The Webserver is very slow to read and update from page to page, and it could be laid out better. But it's still handy.

It says in the manual, Printer-server feature won't work woth 3-1 Printers, but it found my Canon 3-1 Printer and works fine. The "auto power" funtion does work well. The NAS goes in to sleep mode when no PC's are detected on the router. When you power on your laptop/PC, the NAS powers up automatically. It can't auto-detect your PS3 though, so you have to physically turn on the NAS for the PS3 to pick up the media server, or turn on a laptop.

I stream movies wirelessly (54mb/sec) from the NAS to my netbook, with no problems at all. Doesn't pause or freeze once. If hard wiring, it's perfect for streaming full HD movies. No buffering or pausing seen. Transfer speeds via PC aren't too fast. Transfered 400gig of movies overnight with no problems though.
Don't use the flat cable in the box. It's meant to be used just to download the software, nothing more. Invest in a Cat5e patch cable for regular use.


Sony Wireless Headset (PS3)

4.0 out of 5 stars good headset., 23 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Haven't used any other bluetooth headset, but it seems good. Set up is easy. Once you remember to keep it charged when your PS3 is on you're laughing. Turning it off is a nightmare though. You have to hold down the little button for a good few seconds. It's not too comfortable though, but this is the norm for any kind of headset I'd say. Leaving it in my ear for over an hour uncomfortably hurts. Luckily you can easily turn the ear hook thing around and use your other ear for a bit.

3.0 out of 5 stars good movie. not much dialogue., 23 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Le Mans [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
Good movie if you're a McQueen fan. He's cool as f... in this movie alright. So cool, that he doesn't have to say much, no one does really. It is a movie about LeMans though, so that takes center stage to the characters. It's in the collection now, but how often I'll watch it is anyones guess.

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but boring., 23 Sept. 2010
You find yourself going from one end of the map to another a lot. Some maps are too big, so it's sniper-camping-heaven...if that is your gig, which for me it's not. If you want a more relaxed game than COD MW2, then this is grand. It's supposed to be more team orientated, but you're pretty much on your todd like every other game I've played online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big ampage. Massive croc clips though, 23 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have use these leads a few times now, no issues with melting, even when left two running car batteries for over half hour. Work no bother on my high ampage big diesel 2.5lt jeep. They look and feel solid. The clips are huge, bit overkill actually, look like they should be used on a truck battery, but they fit any size battery terminals. I haven't had any trouble with them. They're better than the last set that melted!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great running socks!, 23 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Personally suffering from foot blisters with normal socks, with these - they have all gone! They have two layers which stop chaffing on the feet.
I do a 15mile run no bother in these. Very decent socks, very comfortable. They'd wanna be for the money though. Expensive but worth it.
They actually will last a 1000 miles. And they have held up well in the washine machine after about a hundred low-temp washes. As with all socks, they can get a bit hard after multiple washes. This doesn't bother me, but a bit of fabric softener would sort out that. All in all - Highly Recommended!
