FRUSTRATION - Do yourself a favor and buy a different product
 
Bought my first Linkstation about a year and a half ago. Just purchased, and returned, the second unit (same model). Hand's down this is the MOST FRUSTRATING piece of technology I've EVER used. As the head of the IT department at a small business (60 people), I know how to use these things, and how to diagnose/solve the tech problems on my own. If I can't figure out how get a simple NAS box back up and running, what chance does the average user have?First let me say that when the product wor...

daily production use
 
UPDATE (likely final):Well, after 18 months of hard use the unit has died. About two months ago it started shutting down and restarting randomly. Even with logging enabled it never produced a notification or logged a corresponding event. This behavior had increased in frequency. It finally failed to restart to a recoverable state. Popped the cover off and there appears to be some heat damage to the controller board. (blistered, discolored, or flaking lacquer on the board). Luckily I have a...

Good so far.
 
The other reviews on here are pretty bad. I've run this thing 16+ hrs./day since June with great success. I edit HD video and the transfer speed has been fine - via CAT 5. Let's hope only the unhappy people have been posting.

Don't purchase from Buffalo Technology
 
If you enjoy emailing support numerous times, shipping back RMA defective LinkStations and arguing with support as to when the device is defective, then you should purchase from Buffalo Technology.Go right ahead.One RMA is fine. It happens. But 4 times is simply uncalled for.First RMA - The device stopped working after a power outage. Yes, it was on a UPS system but for some reason, it locked up and would not work again. Sent it back to Buffalo Technology after numerous hours of email, phone cal...

Lousy reliability and customer support
 
I don't often review products - but this was a bad buy.I bought one Oct 2009, and it worked OK for maybe 8months. I left it on, and used it to store music and backups. After a few months it started vibrating and then it failedI tried to figure out what was wrong, PC upgrades NasNAvigator2 for my Windows went wrong. So I turned it off an left it.Now I'm back trying to bring it up. I've downloaded the latest NasNavigator2, and turned on LS-QL506 Model: LS-QL F/W 1.02 and at least the NasNavigator2...

Unsupported, Unreliable.
 
I purchased this product because it was a 4 drive RAID setup capable of RAID 5. Theoretically, that allowed me to be able to run my drive even if one drive failed. Well... Here I am just over one year into ownership of this product, and one of the drives fails. No Problem. Right?WRONG.Not only did the drive fail, but my linkstation became inoperable. I cannot run the linkstation on three drives as they claim. I called Buffalo for support, and they went through the process of setting up an RMA fo...

Device Locks Up - Known Problem, No Answer
 
Avoid Buffalo products. I purchased this product and everything worked for several months before it locked up, I could not connect to it with any of my network computers and it refused to shutdown using the switch. The only way to turn it off is to unplug it - not a safe approach to shutting down a hard drive. The problem has been raised numerous times on the Buffalo tech site and Buffalo has never responded with an explanation or an answer. It appears Buffalo does not produce the quality we...

Stay away, just awful product and company
 
I purchased this product a little over a year ago to act as a backup server. I had numerous problems with it immediately including a drive failure. It was setup for redundancy however the system is too slow for that operation (RAID 5) and took almost 2 days to rebuild during which time a second drive failed. I was able to pull the drives and rebuild using another system. Repeated contacts with buffalo either went unanswered or received stock answers that there was nothing they could do about it ...

Works great for two years or so, after which point, you're left up the proverbial creek.
 
I had great luck with Buffalo and have been using their products for close to a decade now. But the company that was once committed to developing quality products and serving its customers needs for reliable, fault-tolerant data storage has abandoned its original mission. Their devices are now mature in the market and failing en masse, leaving customers and their precious data in the lurch.Mine lasted about two years before it started throwing-up a weird error code that indicated a failure of th...
