Buffalo has really pushed the boat out with its latest high capacity hard drive. The LinkStation Quad can store up to four terabytes of data, be that multimedia, backup, or other data, and allows web access to those files plus media streaming to an iPhone.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a built-in BitTorrent client which allows files to be downloaded directly to the device, after configuring from a PC control panel, without the need for other computers to remain powered up. How quickly can you fill up four terabytes?
Other features include built-in DNLA-compatible media server, one touch transfer of media files from digital cameras and camcorders using Direct Copy feature, integration with iTunes 8, backup software, a power-saving mode with timer which allows the device to be woken up and put to sleep at various times of day, a choice of RAID modes, plus easy access to the hard drive itself.
Available now, the one terabyte version costs £509.99, with the two terabyte version at £639.99 and the four terabyte version at £939.99.
