We currently use a Buffalo Drivestation Duo in Raid 1 mode. We also have a Buffalo Drivestation Quad in Raid 5 mode We also ordered another Buffalo Drivestation Duo to run in Raid 1 mode. The first has (2) 750 GB drives The second unit has (4) 1 TB drives The last will have (2) 2 TB drives. Anyone else use Buffalo drives?

Yup. I've gone through a couple of their NAS devices. A LinkStation 250GB some 5-6 years ago, and then a LinkStation Live 500GB that I'm currently using to serve most of my audio library. Both were/are a bit slow, but you get what you pay for, I suppose. That last one cost me $80 some 3 years ago, so I'm not complaining.

I am actually looking to buy two 2TB external hard drives. The Buffalo's are priced well, along with the Western Digital. Any reason to choose one brand over the other? I am buying them to back up files. Perhaps I will get one of either brand and see. . . . .

Most OEM would buy from 2-4 sources just to be safe and for pricing reason. So pretty much everyone.
