Pros none, since I couln't get it to work.
Cons Unable to get set up, Windows 7 w/ Cisco router, never able to be recognized. Was on hold with Tech Support for at least an hour and a half and still couldn't connect. Boxed up and returned. Do not buy this or any product from Buffalo
Summary Very disappointed.
Pros Buffalo meant it when they said "Quick Setup." From fully boxed to able to see it on my network, the Cloudstor only took 10 minutes. Most of it was spent waiting while the hard drive formatted.
Cons My major complaint is that a USB-connected hard drive reads media ok when you view it as a network share, but you cannot view it through the my.cloudstor.com account over the web.... There's a firmware update coming that will address this though...
Pros Can backup any thing I want to it.
Can access it from any internet connection
Easy to set up
Can drag and drop files in Windows to it
Cons Printer share does not work, can only print attachment from email from one email address
Cannot adjust how to print, other than portrait or landscape
Summary Works good to backup files or share files with others
Pros Cheap and good idea just doesn't work
Cons Unable to get set up, Mac user with time machine, never able to be recognized, not a computer expert but not easy set up. Was on hold with Tech Support for an hour and a half. Boxed up and returned. Do not buy this or any product from Buffalo.
Pros Cheap...but you get what you pay for.
Quiet...but is it really working.
Small...but maybe size matters.
Cons I have been fighting with this drive for months. I thought it was me, as I am a neophyte.
Well, I have learned my issues are not me, but they are this drive. All you have to do is go to the buffalotech.com website and check out the forums regarding
Summary Could not be more disappointed.
