Buffalo LinkStation Pro Quad 4TB
13 September 2011
Conclusion: There are better NAS servers out there if you're willing to spend more, but for users seeking ease of use and broad functionality at an affordable price, there's plenty to admire about the LinkStation Pro Quad.
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.
