This latest model of Buffalo’s LinkStation Mini sets itself apart from the host of other media server options vying for your money by offering a built in BitTorrent client to manage all your P2P file sharing.
Available in black or white and both 500GB and 1TB storage sizes, the LinkStation Mini also features support for DLNA sharing with transfer speeds capable of up to 40 Mbps. There is also a WebAccess portal, allowing users to access files stored on the LinkStation Mini via the web from anywhere in the world.
Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the LinkStation Mini keeps itself discrete not only by its size, but also by its lack of a noisy fan. It’s able to do without this heat-reducing gear as Buffalo claim power consumption is 60% lower than on previous models.
Paul Hudson, Northern European sales director, Buffalo Technology, commented: “As the appetite for digital media continues to grow, consumers expect high-quality, high-definition content to replace traditional formats. The LinkStation Mini is an ideal way for people to store all their movies, music and photos; share it with friends and family and to use it in their homes on a computer, laptop or television.”
The LinkStation Mini is available now, with prices starting at £179.99, going up to £249.99.
