Buffalo LinkStation Pro Quad 4TB
13 September 2011
Conclusion: Buffalo's LinkStation Pro Quad isn't the best-performing NAS solution we've ever tested, neither is it the most feature packed. Instead, it makes compromises to deliver a NAS experience tailored to those seeking a reasonable blend of price, performance and function.
Excerpt: With up to 4 terabytes of hot-swappable, fully redundant drives, you’re not going to run out of space unless you decide to host a film festival. And those willing to delve into Buffalo’s extremely deep settings will not run out of functionality, either.
Pros: Powerful (and free) remote-access client. Drives easy to swap out. Quiet. 85-page manual will please RTFM crowd.
Cons: Slowest transfer speeds in our test, though not by a lot. Configuring Web access and other advanced features takes patience. Ungodly expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Excerpt: The LinkStation Pro Quad is the latest incarnation of Buffalo's popular range of Network Attached Storage (NAS) - an improved processor and faster memory helps the four included 1TB hard drives to deliver speedy performance over a home network.
