A Decent Simple NAS Solution
EDIT 9/20/2011: After three years my LinkStation is still whirring away like it did the day I bought it. Still works perfectly with no problems.

EDIT 1/29/2009: This thing just totally saved my data. My PC crashed over the weekend and wouldn't boot up even after I ran the Windows XP installer in Repair Mode. It just kept rebooting over and over. Fortunately I had backed up my Windows drive to the Linkstation and was able to restore it back to its original location, now everything works fine again! Totally worth the purchase price.

I've had my Link Station Pro Duo for a few weeks and I've found that it gets the job done that it was made to do: stores data over the network.

The NAS comes with two pieces of software:

Memeo backup - Absolute garbage. I let it run for two weeks straight and it never finished backing up my 52 gigabytes of data. It's also not capable of backing up open or locked files even though Windows has had Volume Shadow...

Easy set up and whisper-quiet operation
I researched NAS options and read countless reviews on various products for months before taking the plunge and buying this device. I was somewhat apprehensive about what might be involved with the technical setup. I am somewhat tech-savvy, but by no means an IT expert. I wanted a NAS that I could configure to support two computers via a Linksys router.

Due to limited desk space, I was forced to place this unit right beside me rather than across the room as I had hoped. I was pleasantly surprised to find out it is quiet, even when it is working. The unit is surprisingly small and compact and takes up little space. It looks huge in the photo, but it is smaller than a toaster - it looks/feels more like a hefty book.

The setup went easily enough, after an initial brief panic when I discovered all the .pdf documentation on my installation disk was in Japanese. After I calmed down, I just went to the Buffalo Web site and downloaded the .pdf in English. (This was...

Linkstation NAS
The 2TB Linkstation Pro Duo does everything the folks at Buffalo say it will. The configuration utility is a simple web based utility like used on many routers. The setup offers many powerful features like adding numerous user accounts with varying permissions to different shared folders. I have used this feature to give each person their own backup folders for their PC's in addition to putting all our digital pictures in one place for everyone to use.

Out of the box it comes setup for Raid 0, non mirrored, 2TB capacity. Change over is easy but did take about 5 hours for the drive to perform disk tests. Once completed, it has a 1TB capacity and all the data is mirrored on both drives so you won't loose data (why I bought this drive).
One default I changed on the drive was to set a static IP address for the drive, otherwise a router reboot might cause the IP address to change which can cause problems with breaking your mapped drive (found this out on a print server...
