Buffalo Recharges the LinkStation Family with the LinkStation V-Series Line


TestFreaks Data











We love our NAS boxes here at technogog, I myself run two of them a Synology and a Thecus and I don’t know what I would do without them really. They’ve fully replaced any external hard drive backups, it’s faster and just much more convenient  really and I have access to everything when I’m away as well.  Buffalo is a company that makes NAS Boxes as well, and I haven’t had the pleasure of working with them yet, but their products look decent enough really. They’re just introduced a few new product in their Linkstation line that have some decent specs.
