Buffalo LinkStation Quad 4TB 7200RPM USB 2.0 RAID Network Attached Storage - LS-Q4.0TL/R5 - Access your files remotely using any web browser
|Buffalo’s LinkStation Quad offers large, secure and remotely accessible storage for your home or SOHO network-- all with the peace of mind of RAID technology. The LinkStation Quad supports RAID0, RAID1, RAID5 and RAID10. By default the Quad ships in RAID5, continually providing redundancy and protecting your data from potential drive failure. RAID5 also provides the best balance between security and available storage space. |
In addition to its RAID drive security, the LinkStation Quad has a snap-off front plate, which gives easy access to the quick-swap hard drives, which allow for a drive replacement without the need for shutting down the unit.
The LinkStation Quad comes loaded with features! With its built-in Web Access feature (optimized for iPhone), you can access your files anytime via web browser from anywhere—best of all, you can also upload files while away from home! A built-in DLNA™ multimedia server allows you to stream multimedia content directly to any DLNA player on your network and the BitTorrent client lets you access and download multimedia files without the need of a PC running during the download. A DirectCopy function enables the Quad to automatically save multimedia files from USB attached storage devices to its internal hard drives.
The LinkStation Quad has a heavy-duty cooling system, which allows the unit to run cool and quite at the same time. The LinkStation Quad is best suited for home and SOHO users who want a reliable RAID 5 NAS, as well as the ability to stream multimedia content to their entertainment devices.
The unit stopped working after I upgraded the firmware. Any firmware upgrade should save off the last known state and allow recovery to the original firmware. I called tech support and they couldn't help me at all. I had to purchase UFS Explorer for $135 USD in order to recover my data. It is out of warranty so they wouldn't fix it even though it was their update software that broke it.
