4.5 Great product, until it broke in 9 months. Rottweiler24 | 17/09/2012 | See all Rottweiler24's reviews (6) Bought this for just 75 pounds 9months ago. Nice looking, fanless and powers up and down with the computer/tv etc. HOWEVER, out of the blue it decided to stop working, and after taking it to a computer repair shop I was told (after paying for the service) that there was a catastrophic failing of one or more components in the drive itself, and after spending over a hundred pounds I am left with no drive and no data - losing 800gb of data and backups. Disgusting for a drive 9months old. I have written a letter of complaint to Buffalo and keenly waiting on their reply. Until then, I will be avoiding all Buffalo drives.
