The short editorial description of Buffalo TeraStation TSX40TLR5

TeraStation Pro III Desktop 4TB
Buffalo TeraStation TSX40TLR5:
The official marketing text of Buffalo TeraStation TSX40TLR5 as supplied by the manufacturer

Buffalo TeraStation III is a larger capacity NAS device with robust RAID 5 capability. The redundancy of four separate hard drives in RAID 5 or RAID 1 modes mean that even if a hard drive fails, your data is safe.

With Hot Swap functionality, if a drive does fail, the TeraStation III automatically powers down the faulty drive, enabling you to safely remove and replace without losing any data, or down time. The replication function allows the connection of a second TeraStation via LAN port and replicates the data to improve reliability, fault tolerance or accessibility.

Heading Buffalo’s Terastation range of Nas boxes, the new Terastation III is aimed at demanding users and businesses. It certainly feels heavy duty, weighing in at 6.3kg with a locking door to secure its drive bays. Secure storage: Buffalos Terastatio...
Bottom line The Terastation III’s price tag is a step above most other Nas boxes, but its features are a step above too. While the lack of eSata interfacing seems a bit remiss, the SFTP support, dual Lan ports and comprehensive applications for both Mac and PC...
