I bought this unit to serve as a small business file server - both for local file storage and as an easy way to make files available to clients. The buffalo webaccess portal (for accessing files remotely) is pretty slick but not very fast in responding to commands. The control panel takes a while to get anything done (needs to refresh everything for 3-4 seconds after every change), but everything in it is laid out very well.
I bought this NAS for a home network. It works quite well but don't expect GB netowork speeds. I get between 23-28meg/s transfer. It is plenty fast for streaming video ot 2 different computers at the same time.
