DON'T BUY IT: Buffalo 500 MiniStation Air 2 Mobile Storage
Crapp. Just had a very bad experience with this. and their costumers services is the worse. No communication and no help. My worse experience ever with internet buying. The stations itself: 1- the battery do not last the time they say (mis-selling) 2- The station wont allow you to connect to 3G wifi if you connected to it for music. you have to choose either listen to music or connect to the world. 3- takes ages to loadup your music to the app and most of the times it dropps its not reliable connection.
