    FRUSTRATION – Do yourself a favor and buy a different product, January 31, 2013
    By 

    Bought my first Linkstation about a year and a half ago. Just purchased, and returned, the second unit (same model). Hand’s down this is the MOST FRUSTRATING piece of technology I’ve EVER used. As the head of the IT department at a small business (60 people), I know how to use these things, and how to diagnose/solve the tech problems on my own. If I can’t figure out how get a simple NAS box back up and running, what chance does the average user have?

    First let me say that when the product works, it works great. It does what it is supposed to: store your data and serve it back up. The problem has been that when something goes wrong, and believe me it WILL, you will spend a LOT of time trying to get the box (and your data) back up and running again.

    Since I’ve owned the unit, I’ve had it mysterious “stop working” on me 3 times. In every case it was not due to anything I did, the box just stopped working. I use the box as a media server, which means in operation it spends nearly all of it’s time serving up my music and movies. I write to it very very infrequently (mostly at setup when I transferred my data over). As anyone who would want this product would know, as long as I’m not writing to the HDDs, then the data should stay in place (assuming no HDD failure). And since it is RAIDed I should be able to tolerate the total failure of one HDD and still be OK.

    Well as I said the device “stopped working” 3 times, and at no time was I writing data. So what do I do? There is little support for the product, the few emails I received had no information you couldn’t find on the online forums (where other lost users try to help each other out). Luckily two of the three times I could recover the data via a software update. The first two times, I was a bit confused as to why the device failed, but seeing as how the data was RAIDed, the small amount of work necessary to bring my device back up didn’t concern me that much. Bumps in the road always happen in IT. Solve them and move on. Right? Wrong.

    The last time my Linkstation went down (about 6 weeks ago) was different, and I have struggled to get the device working again. None of the HDDs are bad. The device simply refuses to completely accept/finish software updates. Sometimes the device isn’t even on the network at all, and I have to setup my own TFTP server just to talk to the dang thing. I probably spent a good 15 hours diagnosing this, trying to get a firmware update into the device, about every which way possible (networks crossover cables, TCP/IP settings, TFTP server, holding down buttons on the panel at boot, etc…) I finally gave up, assuming the box had a hardware fault and was not recoverable. I was frustrated that the product died after a little over a year, but hey it happens. At least my data was RAIDed and as there is no HDD failure (I took the drives out and scanned them from a linux distro to confirm) I should be able to get my data back, which is all I care about.

    So…. I just want to get my data back on my home network. Foolishly I thought that I would just buy another Linkstation, and put my old drives in it, and everything would be OK. Well, long story short, it doesn’t work that way. For whatever reason the 2nd box doesn’t like the HDDs from the first box. Why, who knows? Like I said I wasn’t writing to the disks when the dang system went down in the first place. So I figure, OK need to update the software in the new Linkstation. A little more work and I’ll be back up and running. Well as you can guess I had the SAME problems trying to get the software updated on the 2nd box as well. I figured if I worked hard enough, tried every option that the forums suggest, eventually I’d get it back up and running. As I said I work in IT and if you work hard enough you can finally figure out what the device is looking for to get it back to a healthy state. That and the box was BRAND NEW, so I knew there hadn’t been a hardware failure.

    So… After at least a good 40 hours of my personal time wasted on this, rebooting, network changes, disc cloning, repartitioning…. I have gotten NOWHERE. I gave up and put my original HDDs into a generic 4 bay SATA box, and at least I can READ them using some disc recovery tools. Whew, my data is still there.

    But what about the brand new Linkstation I just bought? Well I figure OK, I will just use their tools to get it back to factory state, and start over. Then using the disc recovery software, I can read and copy data from the old drives onto a new/empty NAS box. Getting a BRAND NEW product back to a factory reset state should be easy, right? WRONG

    I have done everything I can think of to recover the dang box. It just refuses to work, no matter how many times I perform the software update. I eventually did a low level WIPE of the HDDs (from linux), making them appear essentially brand new, and…

    daily production use, June 30, 2012

    UPDATE (likely final):
    Well, after 18 months of hard use the unit has died. About two months ago it started shutting down and restarting randomly. Even with logging enabled it never produced a notification or logged a corresponding event. This behavior had increased in frequency. It finally failed to restart to a recoverable state. Popped the cover off and there appears to be some heat damage to the controller board. (blistered, discolored, or flaking lacquer on the board). Luckily I have a backup image that is only about a week old, but I’ll lose a sizable LiDAR project I was working on. Knocking my original review down to one star for that reason.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW:
    Bought this unit for work about 3 months ago. I analyze and move around large GIS data sets and needed storage and speed. I have had zero problems with this unit and it gets constant use every day. I did knock it down one star for a couple of minor reasons:

    1) The 3rd drive bay has a minor buzzing noise from the drive sled which I fixed with a piece of tape.
    2) The status lights don’t seem to match the documentation. Not really an issue though since I don’t really use them for anything other than monitoring basic read/write activity.
    3) No real need for the included software. Mine came with the drives formatted, but I did wipe and reformat for good measure. (running windows 7)

    UPDATE:
    I’ve had this unit in constant use now for quite some time and have had no problems with it at all. This gets used 8 – 10 hours a day every day. I’m constantly accessing very large raster files and databases and have yet to even have this thing hiccup.

    The other reviews on here are pretty bad. I’ve run this thing 16+ hrs./day since June with great success. I edit HD video and the transfer speed has been fine – via CAT 5. Let’s hope only the unhappy people have been posting.
