Introduction

While many NAS appliances require you to bring your own disks, Buffalo's NAS solutions typically come as turnkey solutions, and that is the case with the latest TeraStation 1200. The TS1200 is a dual bay storage solution featuring capacities ranging from 2TB to 8TB.

 

RAID modes include 0 and 1, along with JBOD with network connectivity available via the rear-mounted gigabit LAN port. In addition to the aforementioned connectivity, the TeraStation 1200 also features a USB port on the rear of the unit.

 

Aesthetics of the unit are similar to what we have previously seen with LinkStation models with the red on black design; although, this unit does carry a removable front door to easily access the drives.

Behind the scenes of the TeraStation 1200, we have a dual-issue ARM 1.2GHz processor paired with 512MB of DDR3 memory. The drives are interfaces via SATA 3Gb/s technology, while offering RAID 0 and 1 availability. As a turnkey solution, the TeraStation 1200 comes with drives populating the slots in several configurations of up to 8TB. Network and USB connectivity is made available on the rear of the unit, while several network features include services such as SMB, AFP, and NFS, along with LDAP and Active Directory support.

 

MSRP for the TeraStation 1200 in the 4TB capacity is set at $399.99, with a three-year warranty.
