Good points:
Fantastic piece if kit. Looks great, performance is fantastic for a home user, its compact and incredibly quite. Very easy to setup/configure.
Bad points:
Maybe the settings page could be a bit more intuitive and also i wasn't a fan of it automatically formatting my new drives in to raid 0 without my consent.

Good points:
straightforward to setup and works.i used a pair of WD Red NAS 2Tb drives mirrored. now have piece of mind.
Bad points:
can hear it in a quiet room, it is on a cabinet which might be amplifying the noise, seems to conflict when whe playing tunes to my Sonos and accessing files from PC, needs investigation.

George, Peterborough

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Can access my files wherever I am on my laptop, iphone and ipad, using the free Buffalo App or FTP via FileZilla on the laptop. Took over 24 hours for Raid 1 to set up on my 2 x 3tb hard drives, and a few backups to copy all my stuff (1.6tb) from my 2tb external hard drive, but now I automatically store everything on the NAS. Another bonus, I can set up torrent downloads on my iphone or ipad then they download silently to the NAS. Absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend it.
Bad points:
None so far, had it in use for over a month.
