Final Thoughts

The newest addition to the LinkStation family offers great flexibility with a unit that comes in a plug-n-play form factor. This time around Buffalo came in focused on a high performance solution, and I must say they delivered, with the LinkStation coming in well above other SoC based NAS appliances in our charts.

 

In addition to the performance, the LinkStation offers an ample amount of durability. While most of the unit is built from plastic, it doesn't feel cheap, and I don't believe any corners were cut when manufacturing the unit.

 

From within the software, the LinkStation unit opens up a host of capabilities such as a DLNA media server, along with a web based cloud server for accessing your data on the go. This makes the LinkStation of the best plug and play solutions in my chart, especially if you don't want the hassle that can come with more expensive diskless units.

 

Pricing at this time for the 8TB LinkStation 420 is set at $599.99. Buffalo warranties the LinkStation 420 for a period of three years.
