Buffalo 2TB LinkStation Live NAS
Fine as a budget NAS

I bought this to use as a cheap network attached backup drive while I reconfigured my main NAS. For that purpose it worked just fine and you certainly cannot knock it for the price.

I haven't used any of the advanced features so I can't speak for them, but as a backup drive it performed perfectly adequately, albeit extremely slowly.


Shortcomings:

1. No power on/off function
2. The drive never spins down (so noisy and power consuming)
3. Very, very slow (took 36 hours to copy 750GB of data onto it, with both source and target directly connected to the router over 1m of cat5e ethernet cable)


Overall: if you want 2TB of network attached storage space to use as a temporary repository you would hard pushed to beat this on price. As your main NAS, I'd probably look to spend a little more.

  • Overall 4*

Its very cheap to run. Until the update months in we could not pause or rewind DLNA server, only on android. instead snailed it using a USB stick. Tech Support Desk are friendly, patient and helpful, Buffalo service, No silly dial1bots and within the UK! stressless second to none. It can be really slow to acess the control panel. Could not shutdown, or lights out. Disk error needs replacing. But now that we can pause I cannot wait for the replacement, it should just be so easy and low energy via my phone or TV

No reset button, no power down switch.

Two months in and it did not read the default password which I didn't change yet.
I can still get at the apps and files but not any settings. So it took a few months before I get time to see to it properly
The technical phone team are very helpful but it took me three phone calls to successfully receive the instructions via email to reset user profiles. That didn't work so they ran me through everything on the phone I am back now for another 2TB hard drive to back all the 68% of used data before I can go ahead with a full factory reset.
You cannot shut the unit down without the password so I fear doing damage to the unit while its like this.
