Packaging and the LinkStation 420

The LinkStation 420 arrives with colorful box art, similar to what we have found with the DriveStation DDR, which we reviewed a few months back. Marketing on the front of the box mentions 80 MB/s performance, along with capabilities of the unit as NAS storage with its RAID 1 data protection.

Included with the LinkStation 420, we find a flat ethernet cable, power adapter, and user manual with software disk.

The Buffalo LinkStation 420 is similar in appearance to the DriveStation series. On the front, we have the power button.

On the back of the appliance, we have a single Gigabit ethernet port with a USB 2.0 available as well.

The front of the LinkStation 420, after removed shows the drives houses in the drive trays.

Our LinkStation included dual Seagate Desktop HDDs in the 4TB capacity.

Removing the casing from the LinkStation, we find the Marvell Armada 370 SoC next to 512MB of DRAM.
