  Good product - works with Time Machine,  2011-10-26
By Jim

I had been wanting to set up Time Machine for some time now, so I could set it and forget it. I bought this NAS drive to accomplish that, and had a bit of a challenge getting it set up. The problem was I didn't have the latest firmware, which I figured out after browsing on Buffalo Tech's site for a bit. You really have to read the documentation to understand all the ins and outs of this drive, which was a bit of a challenge since no hard copy documentation was provided with this refurb unit. The doc is on the drive itself, I finally discovered.

Anyway, I used the web interface to set up the drive, download the firmware, etc., and finally got it all set up with Time Machine. Since then, it's worked like a charm. Time Machine automatically does hourly, daily, and weekly full backups.

One issue was the web interface went on for hours saying the firmware installation was in progress, when in fact it was long since completed. I finally just closed the web interface, restarted the drive, and all was well.

The only other minor nit is that the drive's fan is a bit loud. I have the drive connected to my Apple router, which is in a room my wife uses as her home office. She's complained a couple times that the drive is noticeably loud and a bit annoying.
