|Bottom line|| |
If you need fast, basic network storage and backup/restore capability, the Ximeta NetDisk Portable is a good bet. If you also want media server capabilities, look elsewhere.
The Buffalo LinkStation Live has a lot of features and the right price to make it a really compelling home NAS drive, but its slow speeds give us pause.
