Hi !
I just bought a Buffalo LinkStation Live 2TB, Manufactured in The Netherlands in Aug. 2012. The code on the box is LS-X2.0TL-EU and it looks like that:

http://www.buffalo-technology.com/produ ... rade-live/

It is still in shrinkwrap did not want to open it to avoid the problems with the shop in case I decide to return it.
So far, I'm disapointed because it does not support NFS (out of the box) and by reading some general reviews on Internet for a LinkStationLive with a 5MBps throughput.
I discovered this site but my problem is I cannot match the models about which is spoken here LS-XL, etc to my model LS-X2.0TL-EU and subsequently I don't know what are the specs on my box and what are the available packages and mods.

Hi,

Model = LS-XL
CPU = 800MHz (Buffalo site incorrectly says 600MHz)
RAM = 64MB

Buffalo says throughput is 41.5 MB/s (assuming gigabit network) but I have found that because there is so little RAM you have to turn every other function (i.e. DLNA, BitTorrent, etc) off to get anywhere near this speed.

No NFS support.

HTH

Send it back. It is the low cost model with low cost
performance.
If you need NFS, buy a different brand. None of the
Buffalo boxes support NFS out of the box and the
latest firmware even needs a new kernel for "real"
NFS (read: kernel-space NFS).
Up until now, no one compiled a NFS kernel for stock
firmware.

Thank you ColinTaylor and kenatonline,
Is clear now that is not the box for me, will give it back and put the monies in the jar to save for a Syno.
Meanwhile I'll hold onto my Nas4Free box, it has all the features I need and I'm happy with it except for the size/footprint, noise and power consumption.
