This is up & down in price like a yoyo but this is the cheapest its been.
#2
Is this unit expandable ???
#3
this is probably the CHLv2 model
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Category:LS-CHLv2

600Mhz, but only 64MB RAM

the XHL version (around £120 for same size?)
has 1.2Ghz, 256MB RAM making it a lot more versatile.

you can still do quite a bit with this though as they are binary compatible, so both can do this:

i'm assuming that is this is the 600mhz v2 model, not the 266 v1.. if this is the 266mhz it's slow as hell, don't bother! can anyone confirm which version, amazon don't seem to say?


i went for the Stora (just under £100 with 1.5TB on offers here, 1Ghz, 128MB ram, 256MB flash) as easier to hack, but both have pros and cons.

drives easier to change on Stora, difficult on Buffalo but still possible.
overall, Stora probably a better choice, but depends what you want it to do!

Here is the spec link from Buffalo for more info as it is the same model that Amazon are selling, It includes transfer speeds which is all that most people want to know

does that say anything about the cpu/ram, or how does that identify what amazon are selling?

why are spec pages always so useless?

impossible to vote based on that.

cuzzy, i was saying "fluffing useless", so don't get upset.

nas drive,just what im after,im fed up of disconnecting my external hdd from my hisense media player to transfer media files.

just wondering if anyones knows if this is the best way to do the job.

plug this into my router via ethernet,and plug the usb from this into my hisense,rather than plugging the hisense into to the router with ethernet (router shuts down a lot and may interupt a movie if done solely via ethernet)

heat added :D

Transfer rate for my 1TB Linkstation LS-CHLv2 is between 20-22mbps when transfer large and small files.

I bought a Buffalo refurbished one off Ebay with 1 year warranty for £69.99. Received today.
