Buffalo 3TB TeraStation Stores the World, Plays Nice on the NetworkS

Time marches on, drives get bigger, and Buffalo rolls out another TeraStation network attached storage (NAS) system, and now it's called the TeraStation Pro and inches up to 3TB. Last time we looked, Buffalo's biggest dick was 2TB long, and ran a cool $1999. Fast forward 10 months, and this 3TB model is $2183. Not too shabby—an extra terabyte for $184.

The capacity diff here lies in those swappable drives, and instead of the four 500GB hard disks of its 2TB predecessor, now there are four 750GB hard disks ($695 each for spares) nestled inside. Techno-strap them altogether with RAID 1-5 for your choice of speed or data security, and they also support DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), that nascent industry attempt to make sense of drives and multimedia networking in the home.

Take a look at one more beauty shot of the drive, plus one of the removable 750GB drives:

Damn, 3TB is a lot of movies even when you're talking HD, and then swapping out those drives makes this config even more versatile. We'll take two.
