The advanced TeraStation Pro II from Buffalo is a combination NAS appliance and multimedia server. The four 750GB SATA hard drives can be set up in RAID levels 0, 1, 5, or 10. It’s certified by the Digital Living Network alliance for interoperability to stream media throughout your home.
This compact unit is designed for SOHO or workgroup environments. It supports MS Active Directory and DFS. The back panel has an RS-232 port for remote monitoring and control. There are also 2 USB 2.0 ports for additional storage.
The included Memeo AutoBackup software makes data security easy. Smart-Picks let you select individual files or file types across directories or in specific folders to back up. Then it’s one click and you're done. An easy to read meter helps you keep track of available capacity. New or modified files are automatically backed up so you don't have to worry about losing them.
Pros: It's a good device. It does its job well and has a lot of storage. It has a pretty nice look to it, and its software is pretty good.
Cons: Doesn't play nice with active directory. It "works" but its not really acceptable. If you need it for a job site like we did and you need it to understand permissions then you need to look somewhere else.
