Cons: VERY UNRELIABLE - TOO MANY FAILURES RECORDED.
Other Thoughts: TOOK TO MUCH TIME TO GET AUTHORIZED REPLACEMENT. WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY FOR SHIPPING FOR A PRODUCT THAT IS OBVIOUSLY DEFECTIVE!

Other Thoughts: These have a great price attached to them, but you take a risk. I have not had the drive 45 days, and S.M.A.R.T. has already marked drive as imminent failure. I am glad I kept my 3TB as a backup of the backup. I can at least compress my data and store it.
S.M.A.R.T. shows multiple 'OLD_AGE' error types, and some 'PRE_FAIL' error types. How can i have an old age S.M.A.R.T. error when I JUST purchased the drive? None of the drive attributes have tripped a flag, but because of the multiple values that are way over the threshholds, S.M.A.R.T. has sent a BAD response to the test. results below
Pros: Space. Speed. Dedicated Power Supply, no need to worry about bus power. Long USB 3 cord. Quiet...some reviews say it's loud, but I really don't hear anything, very quiet drive.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Using it as an affordable way to backup other backup drives (2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim drives and older WD USB2 element drives) Just had a 5 year old WD Elements 2TB starting to develop bad sectors, hopefully, I can salvage most of it from there to this new drive. I'll update again if any problems arise. Got this drive on 5/13/2016.

Cons: Warranty is a Joke, Company does not support the product.
Other Thoughts: I have had this drive one year. 6 months after getting it things started slowing down, I thought it might be my usb port, it was not, it was the beginning of the hard drive failing. I get it, hard drives fail and sometimes quickly BUT when I called Buffalo they said it was out of warranty. I asked "Isn't there a one year warranty on the drive?" The tech replied yes...ONE YEAR FROM MANUFACTURE DATE, NOT FROM PURCHASE DATE!! Seriously? He ten suggested their data recovery partner who quoted me $700 to $3900 not including a new hard drive! Seagate does it at a flat rate of $699 including a new hard drive. I will NOT be buying a Buffalo again because their warranty sucks...be cautious with this company.
