Buffalo has been designing and creating turn-key NAS platforms for years. In that time, we have had the opportunity to have a few come through for review and today we add to that list with the latest in the TS3010 series, the 3410DN.
As mentioned the TS3410 is the four-bay model coming from the TS3010 family of appliances. This is Buffalo's mid-range business platform NAS complete with pre-tested drives out of the box. This is a large selling point for Buffalo NAS solutions as typical platforms require hours of time, depending on drive capacity, to build a RAID array. This makes the TeraStation ideal for small offices or professional users wanting cost-effective storage at an entry-level price
Within the TS3010 family, we have three models available. For the purpose of this article, we are looking at the middle unit, the TS3410 Desktop. Running through the specifications, Buffalo offers several capacity options over the four-bay platform including 4,8,12 and 16TB models. In my case having the 4TB model in-house, it was loaded with WD Red HDDs.
Moving down the list, we have SATA 6Gbps and RAID 0,1,5,6 and 10 support along with JBOD. Further connectivity is handled by two USB 3.0 ports in the Type-A configuration and two RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Further into hardware, we find this I s a Annapurna Labs platform taking advantage of the AL212 dual-Core SoC operating at 1.4GHz paired with 1GB of DDR3. Power consumption is listed at 36W idle, 46W nominal and 85W peak.
Pricing of the Four-Bay TS3410DN in its 4TB configuration sits at $584.99 with a three-year warranty.
