    Hey all,

    Just looking at this:
    Buffalo Linkstation Duo 6TB High Performance Multimedia Shared Raid Network Storage ( NAS ): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    and wondering if it's any good?

    What I'd want is for a NAS drive to be accessible over a network and via the internet, allow me to share media with whom I want, (over the internet perhaps as well?)be RAID capable (RAID 1), be gigabit capable and have a bit-torrent client perhaps as well

    I'd also want it to be relatively low power :)

    Unless someone has a better suggestion perhaps?

    You get what you pay for. I had two Linkstations Lives and a Linkstation Pro and they were poor compared to the Synologys I have had.

    Only you can decide.

    The GUI was very slow, the transfer speed was slow (gigiabit is the network adapter speed not how fast it will transfer data), they randomly hung and I would end up having to spend hours trying to recover them. The user interface was just a dogs dinner compared to a Synology.
