Summary: Our studio takes approximately 65,000 images a year and a Raid system is crucial as we have lost hard drives in the past. Buffalo makes a good drive at a great price. This is my second terrastation from them. My first was the 2gb Terrastation. In two years we have lost two drives on that. With the 1gb pro we took out all 4 drives and replaced them with better and larger drives - this process took about 24 hours to do but was worth it.

Summary: Do you need lots of storage space for your data? This could be the answer. These Terastation Pros are available in several sizes, there are four hard drives which can be configured as Raid 5 or mirrored. Raid 5 is the best option as if one drive fails it can simply be replaced and the data can be recovered. Buffalo offer a drive replacement service, or you can just source a drive of the same specification yourself.
Pros: Lots of storage space for a good price, Raid 5

After a 15 second boot process, you access the features of the drive through a browser. All the usual tools for network drives are there, plus some seriously ...
Pros: Solid, feature packed, easy to use
Cons: Not as fast as direct attached storage, plus a little noisy .
