Fast Forward

1-bay Consumer NAS

 

Buffalo’s LinkStation™ 510D series is a customisable, large capacity Network Attached Storage solution with great flexibility.

The LS510D features a robust Dual Core processor and is super-fast with impressive start-up and shut down speed as well as read and write speeds up to 100 MB/s!

The LS510 makes intensive data storage tasks easy – and backups are also easy with NovaStor’s NovaBACKUP Buffalo Edition for PC, or TimeMachine for Mac.

LS510 users will enjoy its intuitive and quick interface and expanded power control features include on/off scheduling, Wake on LAN, and HDD spin down, all of which enable the LS510 to stop working when you do and greatly lessen its power consumption.

Buffalo’s LS510 is also DLNA compatible and works with Buffalo’s WebAccess and 3rd party File Management apps for Android and iOS to help you step-up your Digital Life and/or seamlessly blend in to your existing set-up.
