nice

Anyone know what type of drives this comes with? Thanks.
#5
Seems like a really good deal.

Plus £3.60 for the basic postage option.

My friend said this is unreliable and doesn't always work with slow speeds, LAN issues and bad software UI.

He told me I should get the 2x 4TB option which is Western Digital (Hitachi) drives.

so they told you it's fundamentally a bad chassis but then recommend buying it with bigger drives? eh?

I also agree with this cynicism. Bad software and UI isn't sorted by an extra 1TB of space.

I have had bad experiences with several models of buffalo nas. Its not worth the hassle.

I have Buffalo Nas Duo 2x1TB
Maybe GUI is not perfect but how often you actually will using it?
After initial setup I access GUI may by 50 times since I owned it which is 5 years.
There is no point using GUI unless you want to change settings. All files can bee easy accessed thru file managers. And Buffalo have nice software for smartphones giving you access to files on the go.

Because the bigger models are Western Digital drives (UI doesn't bother me but does him) which are the ones I have always used and never had a problem with myself in any machine

Your friend tells you this NAS drive is fundamentally flawed, then recommends going for the most expensive option? oO
#14
My Buffalo drivestation 1tb duo is still going strong after many years, can recommend this brand.
#15
I work at multiple sites which use Buffalo NAS boxes, they have been terribly problematic, though it is a good price, approach with caution.
#16
Thanks, I've gone for this. Was tempted for one of the WD MyCloud devices, but needed the print server, so this seems to fit the bill, and much better storage capacity. Ta :)
#17
Hi all I am new to this please can anyone advice me .
Can I build virtual machine to learn new system like ( Linux and server 2012 labs )
#18
I wouldn't touch anything Buffalo. I've had to swap numerous routers, network cards and NAS' over the years because of silly issues and hardware failures. I wouldn't dream of putting 3TB of my own data on a Buffalo NAS.

Saying that, the deal itself is hot especially when compared to the 4TB version, which actually costs more than this version even though it's the same box.
#19
My first NAS was a Buffalo - got it cos it seemed like a good price.
Had no end of hassle with it - constantly had to reboot in order to connect to it.
So many times I would sit down to watch a movie and ended up having to fart around with the bl**dy NAS for 10-15 minutes.
Paid extra and upgraded to a QNAP after a year - much much better - 99% reliable - very rare that it needs a restart.
#20
Strange I have never had any problems with any Buffalo NAS, used a fair few over the years, check your network or the crappy router that is provided by your ISP!!!

Never used the 'crappy router' provided by ISP - always bought my own. As soon as I replaced the Buffalo with the Qnap - it all started working fine - no network changes, no 'crappy' router changes.

Seems like a really good price, but I'm worried there is a catch... I'm not 100% certain this comes with drives as its not completely clear on the product description. Yes it says "6TB" which implies it actually *has* the storage, but there's not detail about the drives... as opposed to most of the other NAS units listed on the broadbandbuyer.co.uk site.

Anyone able to confirm 100% that it has the drives included? (ie. you've bought and received one)

Just so you are aware the warranty on drives as part of a NAS are usually much less than if you buy the retail versions of the bare drives. For example a WD Black may have 5 years warranty but a drive in a NAS might only have 1 or 2 years warranty. Something to consider as I would say a significant number of my drives have failed within warranty.

Could you do us a favour and check exactly what drives are included? I notice Amazon lists two versions for each capacity, one with WD Reds and the other without. Cheers.

Mine had Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm in - I didn't make a note of the exact model no, and it's up and running now.

It's set as RAID 1 by default (or mine was).

Thanks for the info!

I'm a bit of a NAS noob, how good would this unit be to use as network storage for all my media and files? I would want to access the drives from a Raspberry Pi running XBMC and also map them to my desktop PC. I read a lot about these cheaper NAS boxes having sub-standard read/write speeds, but how much does this matter in the real world? Are they so slow that I couldn't watch a 1080p movie on the Pi? Or is the problem just for people who want to do frequent large file transfers like full PC back ups?

Thanks again!

I dunno, I haven't tried streaming from it yet - I'm still copying stuff over to it atm. Was getting about 3MB/sec over wireless and 10MB/sec wired. Not sure if that's good/acceptable or not (am a noob at this too), or what the limiting factor is, but I would guess it's plenty for streaming a movie.
