The Buffalo LinkStation is a storage device that can be hooked up to your home’s router, making it a home cloud server complete with up to 8 TB of storage space. It has its own processor, which allows for transfer speeds of up to 100 MB/s. It’s also DLNA certified, can be used as a separate iTunes server, and comes with BitTorrent software for P2P sharing, which you surely won’t use for anything illegal.
Maybe the best part is that your new home cloud server won’t be limited to just the home. The LinkStation also comes with WebAccess software, which allows you to access your data from mobile devices anywhere, provided they run iOS or Android. As long as you have a network connection, you shouldn’t ever need to have files locally stored on your mobile devices again, if you don’t want to.
The Buffalo LinkStation 400 series includes the 410, which has a single drive, and the 420, which has two drives. The 410 will be available in 2 TB ($230), 3 TB ($260) and 4 TB ($340) capacities, while the 420 will come in 2 TB ($280), 4 TB ($400), 6 TB ($500) and 8 TB ($700) capacities.
