Rated 5 out of 5 by Gordonx Best NAS/Server ever
I bought 2 of these, one for my home network and one for a friends business. They work perfect, 55+Mbps transfer rate. Web accessible, multi-user from outside of the local network. Amazing device, the only problem is that if your not comp savvy, you're dead in the water. You have to port forward to get them to work properly.
Only took 10mins to set up :)

I purchased a Buffalo Linkstation Pro model LS-V2.0LT this week end.
I followed the exact instruction to set up the drive with my Acer Windows 7 system. Once all of the software was loaded I set the backup to do a complete backup. A message was shown that the computer had to be restarted before the backup could be completed. On restart the computer failed to start Windows and displayed a screen that instructed me to pur the Startup disck in the floppy drive (which my computer does not have) and press F2 to continue. At this point I was stuck. Could not access Safe mode or do anything but get to this same screen.
I called Buffalo Technical Support and expalined exactly what happened. They claimed that the issue was with my computer and had nothing to do with their product. As I tried to explaing that it was installing their product that caused this issue they refused to offer anyother help than to tell me to call Acer since it was a computer issue.
I then called Acer and according to their Technical Support the installation of the drive caused a failure with the computer and their only suggestion was to use the restore function to return the system to our of box configuration. There goes all of my data on the computer which is why I bought this drive in the first place. Luckily for me I had all of my critical data on cloud storage.
So after perforimg a full restore on the computer and getting everything running correctly again I made the stupid mistake of trying the Buffalo drive installation again. Identical failure occured. Just for the fun of it I call Buffalo technical support and once again they refuse to admit that their product/software is causing this problem.
If you ar looking for a network drive look somewhere else. This is not the Drive or even the company that you want to deal with!!!
