As seen on Amazon online retailer here:

http://www.amazon.com/Buffalo-Technology-LinkStation-LS-WSX1-0TL-R1/dp/B00365MF68/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333060846&sr=8-1-spell

 

the Linkstation Mini LS-WSX1.0TL/R1 (1 Terabyte model) is still to this day being sold on the market. In fact that's where I bought mine a little over a year ago. 

 

Scrool down to "technical details" and to this day it still advertises as one of it's features (quote from Amazon):

 

"Time Machine Support: Use the LinkStation Duo with Time Machine backup"

 

Furthermore, the box of the product itself advertises such a feature. So it is simply baffling that not only did Buffalo fail to intruduce or even begin testing a new firmware update before this major OS update but in addition they have chosen to do so only on some models. 

For a customer like me who has had the Linkstation Mini for a relative short time, it seems like the product was released to the market and support instantly removed. This is only confirmed by the calls made to their customer service line who's reps confirmed that my device would not be one of the few to participate in the BETA even less, it would not even see the future firmware update. 

 

Someone needs to explain to me how is it that a company is allowed to release a product, advertise a feature and fail to deliver. Is there a class action lawsuit that I"m not aware of because this is simply unacceptable. 

 

I asked about this a week after Lion was released at which point I updated my PC. We're now in the BETA tests of Apple's next OS update, "Mountain Lion." Still Buffalo Tech has yet to release a final update for anyone and for some like me, not even hope. How can we forgive Buffalo, how many of us have invested and depended on these devices only to be mislead? 

 

Buffalo Technologies lies. Buffalo Technologies if you care about your cutomers, where is your support, feedback and resolution to this issue that many have awaited for almost a year. How much louder do we need to get? And why are some of your hardware not being granted the same firmware update as the rest, if it's a hardware limitation don't you think it's you relabel your packaging and stop misadvertising?!

 

Class-Action Lawsuit anyone?

@ DaN-PrS the LS-WSX1.0TL/R1 works perfectly fine with lion with the latest firmware. I suggest you do your research before spouting anymore bűllshít about specific products!
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / LSRecovery.exe file.

Davo is correct. Firmware 1.56 resolved this issue awhile ago. Have you tried updating your LinkStation? If you need assistance I can try my best to help you out.

I created an account just to post here that my Linkstation LS-QL 6TB is the first, and last Buffalo product I will ever own after seeing how they have dealt with the Lion issues.

 

 I finally upgraded my main studio machine to Lion after making sure that all the audio drivers finally work and are up-to-date, only to be kicked in the nuts with my LinkStation not being useable as a TimeMachine target any more, and Buffalo sitting on their asses and doing nothing about a timely update.

 

 For shame.

I could adapt LS-QL for use with Time machine function on Mac OS version 10.7(Lion) or later.
Check this!!

It looks like Buffalo is not the only company running into this issue

Is there still no solution for this Problem???

I have a LS-QL/R5 with Firmware 1.11 and i am not able to get the Time Machine working. There must be a solution?
