this is so typical... jst bought one a few weeks ago for 170 :(

Adding heat (if i can work out how to do it)

Good price, might seem a little expensive compared to those cheap USB external drives, but this is a TOP quality NAS drive that simply plugs into your network and works, allowing full access to your files from anywhere (including web access). Also contains a printer server (to attach your USB printer and turn it into a network printer), not to mention the DNLA (so that all your movies and music are accessible to all computers and PS3 and even DNLA enabled TV's) and then there's the BitTorrent client, you can simply leave it to download for you withput the need of a pc..
Superb bit of kit IMHO.

Agree with Lilmonkey. Its great, only gripe is the bootup time. It takes about 2 minutes before its on and ready to use. But brilliant to store all your movies (SD and HD) to play on the PS3 (Although, make sure you dont upgrade your PS3 Firmware to 2.70 as many people have reported an issue with divx files not appearing after the update. I'm waiting for it to be fixed before taking the next update)

I've had no problem with this NAS drive and my PS3. I always upgrade my PS3 whenever a new firmware appears and play at least 3 DivX's a week off my NAS Box, also keep the firmware on the NAS box up to date (now at 1.07). Just upgraded to 2.80 last night:thumbsup:

Hmm... Don't you guys think that the Netgear RND2000 500GB would be much better value for money?

Sure it costs a little more in the short term, but in the long run it will proof more useful/expandable.

I've been looking at purchasing a NAS for the last few days.

I'd probably probably spend the extra £20 on the Pro version which is due to be released by the end of this month and take advantage of the faster transfer speeds.

what's the advantage of a NAS over just networking off your computer's HD? My computer is linked to the hifi and TV downstairs - via xbox (origianal - no High def telly so watching divx moviesis good enough for me). My computer is also connected to an xbox 360 in my sons room for watching movies.

Do you get faster transfer speeds, is there less power consumption, does it have a longer life expectancy?

-lower power consumption. These Nas's consume around 14w when running 4w when idle. Compare that to 100w or so for an energy efficient PC.

-Your data is always available on the network and also outside the network via remote access.

-You can leave the NAS downloading torrents without any noise and lower power consumption.

With a NAS such as the Netgear RND2000 you also have the option of Raid 1/Mirroring, which keeps your data safe in case a hard drive dies.

In which case I shall be updating my PS3 tonight! :D

How do you upgrade the NAS though? When I go on the buffalo website, I can only see firmware 1.07 (http://www.buffalo-technology.com/support/downloads/ls-chl-linkstation-live/)

also, how do you add heat to this deal?

I suppose it all comes down to what you want to use it for...

the RND200 is pretty big, and heafty. If you're looking to store important docs and the likes, it would probably be a better option, with the raid facility.

For me, i use it for storing my movies and music. I prefer the linkstation live because its small, sits nicely next to my PS3 and if I go somewhere, I can just pick it up and put it in my bag.

I wrote a £460 bill the other day, for retrieving a lost music collection. Fine by me. :p

I have one of these sitting upstairs in my house and it stores everything on it. The xbox 360 connects to it wirelessly so I can stream all my movies, tv shows, music and photos to the big tv downstairs in the sitting room. Similarly I can also also stream all this stuff wirelessly to the bedroom tv using my Archos Wifi player. All of this can be done without my pc being switched on, just the router and the NAS drive need to be on.

Even better is the fact that I've set up the media server to allow access to the drive. This means I can log into it anywhere with internet access to get to the files stored on it, again without the need for a pc to be on. The only down side is you can't upload to the drive remotely yet but I believe Buffalo are working on this issue.

I bought mine at the end of last year for £200 so this is a great price :thumbsup:

Hi,

I've got the 500GB version and its great. Just a quick question though, how easy was it to set up the media server, so that I can download files when away from home? Also, is it possible to be at work, and get torrents to start to download, so that when I get home they are done? Again, if so, how easy is it?

It's easy enough. Just log into the drive through the web interface and within the Media Server part enable it and set a user and priorities (i.e. read only access, read and write access etc). Then set a name for the drive (the example used is Baldeagle so that would make the web access address as [url]www.buffalonas.com/Baldeagle[/url]) and set a password.

The problem I had was getting my route set to allow the access:oops:

Note - why the cold votes it was hotter earlier???

Amazon have the LinkStation Pro Duo for £200 which does the same thing. I am in the market for one of these but may wait a month or two to see what the prices do.
