Over the years, vendors like Buffalo have produced turn-key solutions that fill gaps in the market that would otherwise be filled with more expensive server infrastructure. Offering a lower TCO, the TeraStation lineup is fit for small and medium business and offers a storage lineup ranging from four-bay desktop models to twelve-bay rackmounts.



Recently, Buffalo revamped their product stack to include a new TeraStation 5x10 lineup, and we have the four-bay TS5410 solution in house. This solution features a new chassis design with a more modern appeal. Features include VMWare certification, iSCSI Target support, Hot Swap and Rsync, along with Cloud-ready infrastructure supporting Dropbox and Amazon S3 via B-Sync.


Being a turn-key solution, Buffalo offers the TeraStation 5410 in several capacity options. For review, we had the 8TB model sent over, featuring 4x 2TB IronWolf HDDs. In addition to this, Buffalo also offers 12TB, 16TB, 24TB, and 32TB models.




The specifications for this unit call out an Annapurna Labs AL314 processor operating at 1.7GHz, and is paired with 4GB of DDR3 ECC memory, while drive compatibility sticks with SATA 6Gb/s. As mentioned, this is a four-bay unit, but it does support 8TB HDDs, for a total capacity of 32TB. The LAN interface is 10Gbe Copper with two more operating at 1Gbe Copper, and external connectivity is powered by dual USB 3.0 ports.


The MSRP of the Buffalo TeraStation TS5410DN in the 8TB capacity reaches $999.99 with a three-year warranty. In addition, two options are available with standard 3 & 5 year warranty.


  • Keep Your Drive (KYD) - This will allow users to keep their old hard drives and have replacement drives shipped next business day. Available in 3 & 5 year options.
  • Next Business Day (KYD) - This warranty option has replacement drives shipped next business day. Available in 3 & 5 year options.
