    Another NAS product that is limited by poor software and a confusing setup process, September 22, 2013

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    There are a lot of products that look great on paper, and then you get them and after a couple of hours of maddening toil, you end up wishing you’d made a different choice. That’s my experience with the Buffalo LinkStation 410 2tb NAS in a nutshell. The product spec sheet suggested this was exactly the device I was looking for to store my photos, music, and video files and stream them to various devices in my home, as well as to my phone or tablet when I was at work or traveling. The concept is simple enough–a fairly zippy 2Tb hard-disk-based server in a NAS housing that connects to your router via an ethernet cable, software that allowed you to manage the device, and apps that allow you to access your content from portable devices. What’s not to love?

    Well, the hardware side of the equation is mostly terrific. The Buffalo LinkStation 410 is well built, extremely quiet, unobtrusive, and even has a USB port on the back so you can plug in a printer or another hard drive. Unfortunately–and this omission is hard to understand–the USB port is the older USB 2.0 connector, not the current USB 3.0 connector. That 25-cent cost savings means the bandwidth through that port is effectively throttled by 90%. If you’re looking to chain together several devices, don’t overlook that issue when you make your buying decision.

    The Achilles heel of this product, though, is actually the clunky software and app. The GUI is dated and unintuitive, and is clearly designed by engineers, not UX experts. While it is usable, it is not much fun to use, and you end up gritting your teeth as you try to parse what the software may or may not allow you to do or prohibit you from doing. It’s another example of engineers solving individual problems but forgetting at the end to tie everything together to make it look and act like a single software product. The result is confusing language, unclear process steps, and lots and lots of time spent trying to find answers on a website that is bereft of them.

    It’s not like Buffalo is alone in this product category in terms of their inability to deliver well-designed software with a modern GUI that is easy to navigate and is well supported with good documentation and online help. But that doesn’t excuse them from packaging a decent hardware system with poor software. And if you are a typical user like me, that aspect of the product value chain might be enough to get you to look elsewhere for a NAS system.

    A very nice simple network drive with a good amount of functions, September 19, 2013

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    This is an interesting device. It is trying to be a lot of things:

    * Network backup
    * iTunes server
    * DNLA server
    * Printer sharing
    * DIY cloud service
    * Mobile device data storage

    For my purposes, I used it as a network hard drive for backing up a couple of windows computers. After setting everything up on the network and discovering the drive on windows, I had little to no problems with daily backups.

    One concern that other people may have is depending on your skill level, it could feel overwhelming to set this up. I didn’t find it too bad, but the instructions could have been better. Ideally, I would have put a link to a set of tutorials. Also, depending on how you may want to access the drive outside of your network, and your network configuration, you may have to set up your router to be able to remotely access it.

    I haven’t used the DNLA, printer sharing or cloud services yet. I may add these later.

    The biggest two downsides of this drive, is 2GB, 3GB and even 4GB may not be enough. If you are backing up a few computers you can quickly begin to fill it up. That is even before you start putting other stuff on the drive.

    Also, remember, that it doesn’t backup things that only on that drive. For example, if you move your whole iTunes, movie or photo library there (and it doesn’t exist anywhere else) and this drive fails, there is no back up of it. Be aware of this.

    The speeds transferring files to and from this drive were good. Not the best, but definitely not the worst. That said, this was over a wired connection. If you are transferring files over wiifi, you may notice a huge speed loss, though this is not the fault of the drive – it is caused by wifi.

    In conclusion, yes the are far better solutions out there. Devices with multiple drives, easier to swap out drives, more features, more reliable and faster…. but, those devices also cost more and require a more complicated setup. For what this is, you can’t have the same expectations as higher priced alternatives.

    All things considered, this is a very good choice for simple personal needs.

    This review is from: Buffalo LinkStation 410 2 TB High Performance NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server (LS410D0201) (Personal Computers)

    It works but could be a lot better. I wanted a drive that I could set up with two sides. One side for home use and the other for access from the internet and this drive will do that. I made two folders Web and Home.

    The Home Side

    DLNA works very good.. all my TV’s, radio, and PC’s have no problem and movies or music plays very good to everything.

    File Sharing.. works very good and easy to map a network drive to both Web and Home Side. File copy speed is good but I only used wireless. Ethernet connected would be faster but not practical in most homes. I was getting about 15 -20 Mb per second over wireless AC.

    The Web Side

    It was fairly easy to set up but the instructions are not very clear. I wanted a URL that I could give to users with an ID and Password but there is nowhere in the instructions as to how to get that URL. When you connect via the internet, the browser will display http://192.168.1.*:9000/ and that would be the same at every home that has the LinkStation. I finally figured the link is (with secure access disabled in setup)

    http://buffalonas.com/The Name You Give Your Web During Setup/

    A good way to make a bookmark/favorite in Windows 7. Right click the desktop, click New Shortcut, when the window pops up, copy and paste the link like above into the box, click next and next window pops up, type a name for your Web shortcut. It will save to your desktop and you can copy it to your Favorites folder in Users/Your Name/Favorites/

    Do not set it up for secure web access (HTTPS) or IE will not want to allow access since you won’t have a site certificate. I doubt one would work if you did buy one.

    The software running on the LinkStation seems out of date since it recommends Internet Explorer Ver. 8 or Firefox Ver. 3.5… I think IE is now Ver 10 or later and I installed Firefox and I think it was Ver 21 so not many people will be going backwards in browsers to access a LinkStation. I use IE 10 and put it in compatibility view… It works good for the web access part but when I go to the setup part, I have to remove the compatibility view so it will display right.

    The software needs work. I also don’t know of anyway to backup the software that runs on the LinkStation. It will backup the data but what if something goes wrong with the LinkStation software? There is also software that installs on your PC and for first time set up, it works but after that, you can uninstall it and just use a bookmark to access the drive set up. The only thing I left installed is what it uses to notify me by email if there is a drive error.

    No need to download any firmware, it will do that in set up. Best to do that first when you connect to it and start setting it up.

    Download software and instructions here:

    http://www.buffalotech.com/products/network-storage/home-and-small-office/linkstation-410

    The USB port: It’s 2.0 and would be better if 3.0. It can be set up for using a USB drive or a printer. I was going to use it as a printer and it showed up in My Computer/Network but I had a problem. When I clicked it, Windows 7 pops up a window to install a printer and if your printer is not in the list that Windows 7 provides, it gives the option to load one from disk. The problem is I have a HP printer and HP does not provide a simple driver anymore. Even the basic driver that HP provides is an exe file for printers and when ran, it expects the printer to be connected directly to a USB port or it will not install. So much for a printer.

    Edit 08-26-2013 Printer problem on USB port solved. It was complicated but I got my HP printer installed and it works good. I ran the basic driver exe file from HP and told it to continue without connecting the printer to a USB port. It completed but did not install the printer. It did create a HP folder in C:Program Files and in that folder are the drivers and inf files for the printer. I went back to My Computer/Network and the LinkStation where it displays lp for the USB port. Clicked it and told Windows I have disk in the C:Program FilesHP folder and it installed the printer. A bit complicated and it should be easier. After Windows installs the printer, it’s ok to uninstall the HP software but don’t delete the printer in Devices. Windows copies all the files it needs to the Windows folder.

    Edit 08-27-2013 I checked Firefox 3.5 and Internet Explorer 8 and both are for Windows XP. That’s just pitiful that Buffalo would release this brand new product series within the past few months and it’s built for Windows XP. My rating just dropped a couple stars until Buffalo gets busy and makes some serious fixes.

    Edit 09-04-2013 I contacted Buffalo about some of the problems with this drive and received a reply saying they had received my message and would be in contact.. I was…
