Got the 320 gig version when Comet had them for £70 a couple of months ago.
Very happy with the box as a storage drive but the DNLA side of things is very flaky and Buffalo have yet to release an english firmware to fix the issue. There is a Japanese firmware that can be installed if you can read Japanese :)
Installed Twonky on mine and is currently serving my PS3 with XVID and X264 files superbly.
If only Buffalo would the fix the DNLA, this would be awesome!

I installed the japanese firmware when I had my linkstation live and you can change the lingo from japanese to English (If its the same update I got), cant remember exactly what was changed now though but I believe the instructions are on the buffalo website. I like many other people had to return my linkstation live after then fan on the back stopped working (after 8 months), but I was quite happy with it until then.

I like the look of these new ones. Like little XBOX 360s. Don't think you can get them in this country yet though.

Was deciding between this one and Icy Box NAS-4220-B.
Icy Box is around ~£90 (cheapest) and ~£118 from Amazon market place both without hard drives included.
I don't need raid, as i'll just use this to sync files between my pc and this.
Also I probably won't use the DNLA function atm (just use smb shares).
The print server is a useful feature in this as well as being able to expand storage with usb hard drives.
Reading reviews and user comments, both products had their pros and cons.
Ultimately this one fitted my needs better than the Icy Box and its cheaper!

Thanks to the op for posting this, added some matches to help warm this deal!

@ dave111 You'd be better off deciding what your needs are and then choosing from that,
i.e.
- Do you want Raid? (For additional backup security or increasing storage)
- Is a print server something you want?
- Will you be using it for streaming movies / music (For the former, speed of the NAS becomes important for High Definition use)
etc.

Ultimately look for something that fits your needs within your budget also be cautious about comments as each product has many -ve and +ve reviews/comments.
