LinkStation™ 421 series: Network Attached Storage: Faster, Easier, More Intuitive, and Front-Facing USB 3.0

Buffalo Technology's new LinkStation™ 421DE is the next generation two bay NAS enclosure: the 421DE comes in a sleek grey chassis and features easy setup, a new intuitive interface, and a free personal cloud for remote access from anywhere via web browsers or smart devices.

Buffalo's new LinkStation™ has the latest CPU with a new generation CPU core for noticeably improved performance that delivers very fast transfer speeds - up to 100MB/s! And when fully populated the LinkStation™ 421DE can be configured in RAID 0 for performance or RAID 1 for redundant storage as part of a back-up solution.

Not only will users be impressed with the speed of Buffalo's new LinkStation™ 421DE, they will also appreciate our new intuitive interface. With quick and direct access to settings, and optimized content presentation, the LinkStation™ 421DE smoothly guides users through easy set up and administration. From the default landing page users will find quick links and toggles to commonly used features which have better wizards, explanations, and graphics; and suddenly, NAS administration is no longer the chore it once was!

New NAS users will appreciate consolidating their media files and data in one central location; and current NAS users will appreciate faster transfer speeds, expanded capacity, and more features. All users will appreciate Buffalo's free personal cloud for remote access via smart devices or web browsers keeping all your data at your fingertips no matter where you are.

Buffalo Technology's LS421DE provides highly customizable network attached storage with greater lexibility. Users can start by installing one drive and add another - when and if needed - to easily increase your network's capacity and capability.
