Buffalo Updates Networked Storage Lineup

Buffalo Technology today announced it has expanded its line of network storage offerings with the addition of two new LinkStation products. The solution is now available in capacities of 160GB (HD-H160LAN) and 250GB (HD-H250LAN) in addition to the award winning original 120GB device (HD-H120LAN).

Buffalo’s LinkStation Network Storage Center is designed for home, SOHO and small business users to store data and media files such as videos, photos and music.

“The demand for high capacity storage is on the increase for home users and small businesses alike. Consumers want to protect precious digital photos, videos and music, while small businesses need to safe-guard mission critical data,” stated Morikazu Sano, vice president of Product Marketing and Public Relations. “The latest versions of the LinkStation were born out of our dedication to the small network environment. We understand our customers’ diverse storage needs and developed the new LinkStation products to meet all network storage and budget requirements.”

In addition to the increase in capacity, new features of the LinkStation include FTP server function, which allows users to access and transfer data from any machine with Internet connectivity. The solution now comes with Buffalo’s own backup software so users can schedule and customize data protection. Buffalo also added an NTP Server, which allows the LinkStation to continually correct its clock for precise scheduling.

The LinkStation features Auto-Install for instant installation and can be used as a wireless device when connected to an AirStationTM or other manufacturer’s access point. The product is compatible with Windows, Linux and Macintosh and features two USB 2.0 ports for additional storage. The LinkStation includes a built-in print server and allows administrators to create user and group access to files and folders. The LinkStation provides users with the ability to run multiple streams for simultaneous media download and usage. The product’s silent operation and attractive, versatile design make the LinkStation the perfect storage solution for any network environment.

Backed by a limited one-year warranty and toll-free 24/7 technical support, the LinkStation Network Storage Center 160GB (HD-H160LAN) and 250GB (HD-H250LAN) are immediately available at street prices of $299 and $399 respectively. The original 120GB LinkStation (HD-H120LAN) is available at a street price of $279.
