    More Storage and Remote Access
    The LS421DE diskless enclosure allows users to construct RAID arrays using drives with their preferred storage capacities. With current model smartphones and tablets featuring high-resolution cameras, these files can quickly fill up a mobile device's storage. Downloading WebAccess to the portable device makes it easy to transfer, save and access files not only on the drive and home network, but also over the mobile network. The LS421DE works as a remote external hard disk drive that can be accessed from anywhere, freeing up storage on mobile devices and increasing smartphone and tablet capacity.
    Designed and Built for High Performance
    The LinkStation delivers data transfer speeds of 80 MB/s or more (when DLNA feature is switched off; default DLNA setting is off) with the latest processors and technologies. You can experience fast copies and videos, streamed content and more without stalls or hiccups.
    Interoperability with Multiple Devices
    In addition to the WebAccess app, the LinkStation can connect with DLNA-supported TVs and consoles to search and play movies stored on the NAS. Use the Twonky Beam app to forward movies to TVs and big screens supporting DLNA (DMR). Files are accessed just like they are on a computer. BitTorrent, which speeds transfers by distributing large amounts of data over the Internet, can be used anywhere, anytime and doesn't even require a computer, by using "BitTorrent Remote" Android app. USB projectors, displays and other USB devices can be easily connected and are ready for use through the network.
    Simple UI Provides Advanced Control
    Setting up new devices and new interfaces can be a hassle. The tile-based user interface uses icons, so navigating these processes is easy and fast. Users can also go to the advanced page to make custom settings to the parameters.
    Supports USB 3.0
    This LinkStation includes a USB 3.0 port. Plug a USB hard drive into the available USB port to expand the total capacity of your LinkStation unit. Additionally, this enclosure model allows you to select your preferred drives and combine them the way you want to achieve higher performance.
    Reliability
    To add storage capacity, simply connect an external drive. External disks for backing up the LinkStation can be used easily. The NAS enclosure supports RAID 1 (mirroring) to automatically duplicate and protect your data if a disk should ever fail.
