The Dualie works well and as advertised. The base station is a powered USB hub that includes two USB ports as well as mini USB to connect the hard drive and a dock connector to plug in an iPod or iPhone or iPod Touch. While the hard drive is installed in the Dualie, it will only operate using USB. Separately, the hard drive can also be connected using Firewire 400 or 800 and the cables are included. I am using the dock as a hub for another external hard drive (plugged into on of the USB ports) and to charge my iPod shuffle (using the second USB port) and then to charge my iPod in the dock when needed. This is really two products, a specialized USB hub that is the dock and a functional standalone 500GB hard drive.

I am not super computer savy but I was able to open this up, plug it into my computer and configure it to windows with no problems. I was also able to move all of my music and photo files to it by just clicking and dragging. If you aren't looking for something with a lot of bells and whistles then this is a great hard drive. the dock is also very convenient, makes it nice to be able to plug in my iPod touch and not have to use a second USB slot on my laptop.

Seriously, the hard drive and docking station does exactly what it says, and it does it well. The drive does need to be formatted out of the box, but the buffalo technology website has the files for it. The dock has 2 usb ports on the back that are just as good as plugging into the computer. This Product is highly recommended!!

P.s.: For PC users, go to[...]and format it on a pc to FAT32.
