Today, I actually recieved a new unit from Buffalo to replace my 1TB Terastation. Considering the ground ship time, it was a really quick turnaround on their end. In the meantime, I have decided to implement my own solution. Not that the Terastation is bad, but I am too much of a "control freak". So I have decided to list the new replacement unit at a discounted price as part of my eBay garage sale.
