Buffalo LS-QV8.0TL/R5 overview

  • 1Description

The 8TB LinkStation Pro Quad LS-QVL/R5 Network Hard Drive Array from Buffalo is a full-featured network storage device, perfect for use in home and small business networks. The array connects via a Gigabit Ethernet port and can be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, or 10 -- allowing you to tune it for higher performance, or to use parity for data protection. It is powered by a 1.6GHz CPU that is capable of delivering sustained network data throughput of 72MB/sec.

The drive is compatible with Mac and Windows client systems alike. You'll be able to access data when you're away from home via Buffalo's free WebAccess service. It works in any web browser, and there is an app available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users. NovaBACKUP Professional software for Windows is included, and Mac users will be able to use the drive for backup via OS X's integrated Time Machine application. The LinkStation Pro Quad also supports BitTorrent downloads and DLNA/UPnP AV media streaming.


Network Attached Storage
Connect LinkStation Pro Quad to any Ethernet port or to the back of your wireless router and instantly access storage from any computer on the network. Store or back up digital photos, MP3s and documents on one hard drive and access it from any computer simultaneously

  • Shared folders can be accessed by everyone on the network
  • Protect private folders and files from unauthorized access
  • Back up every computer on your home network to one location
4-Drive RAID Storage
LinkStation Pro Quad features four hard drives and support for multiple levels of RAID redundancy for a customizable blend of capacity and data protection

  • RAID 0 combines all four drives into a single array offering maximum capacity with no redundancy
  • RAID 1 creates two volumes, each consisting of a pair of mirrored drives. If any individual drive fails, no data will be lost
  • RAID 5 stripes the data across all four drives, interspersing parity data to provide an efficient blend of fault tolerance and storage capacity
  • RAID 10 mirrors two sets of hard drives and combines them into a single array, striping data across all mirrored sets for fault tolerance and increased performance

Optimized for maximum transfer speed, LinkStation Pro Quad utilizes an upgraded processor and RAM, offering greater than twice the data transfer speed of competing devices

  • 1.6GHz CPU
