5* Great value for money

Easy setup and great value for money.
3* Some Info Re; this Drive
Reviewed by Alan on 11/10/2012
Bought this drive as a backup that could be plugged into my router and therefore central to all pcs, the drive itself is good, but the software which is supposed to enable you to access your files from anywhere is hopeless, spoke to buffalo, who suggested a couple of things, they didnt work, they said that was all they could do and blamed Virgin (my ISP). Virgin then said they wont support Third Party devices, so there you have it, manufacturer isnt interested cos they have your money and thats it for them, and Virgin just dont care less (they also have your money). So if you take my advice, I really wouldnt bother with this drive. There are many forums with many more people saying the same thing.
2* Short Lifespan
Reviewed by Anonymous on 21/11/2012
Easy to set up, although slow to write bulk data.
DLNA works fine, but access via Internet connection needs patience and understanding.

The problem is, 5 months old, and error code E30. Customer Support were great in helping identify HDD Fault and return product after an emergency overnight extraction of all of the data.

2 year warranty though, just hope the replacement outlasts the warranty period next time round.
