  • 1Description

Built for home use, the LinkStation 2TB 520DN 2-Bay NAS Server from Buffalo is a customizable solution that is designed to serve as a data hub by making it easier to store, share, and secure digital content. It has an overall capacity of 2TB, which is made up of 2 x 1TB SATA II 3.5" NAS hard drives, and is further powered by a 1.1 GHz Realtek RTD1195N Dual-Core processor and 256MB of DDR3 RAM, giving this NAS the ability to simultaneously stream four HD movies via DLNA while backing up multiple computers. Connectivity to your network is accomplished using the Gigabit Ethernet port and other compatible external peripherals can be connected to the 520DN using its single USB 3.0 Type-A port.

For those who require RAID support, this NAS supports RAID 0 for enhanced data transfer speeds, or RAID 1 for 1:1 data redundancy. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available. The LinkStation 520DN is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms and also supports the TCP/IP protocol and SMB/CIFS, AFP, FTP/FTPS, and HTTP/HTTPS network file services. Included with this NAS is a network cable and an AC adapter. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

General Features

LinkStation's Private Cloud
Buffalo's private cloud solution ensures your privacy and comes without any monthly fees. With a private cloud, your data stays protected in the physical location of your device and not offsite in a 3rd party data center, so your data is accessible and just a couple of keystrokes away. The LinkStation 520DN has large-capacity options and there are no limitations on daily transfer sizes, and no monthly cloud service fees.
WebAccess Provides One-Click Access
Buffalo's free WebAccess app makes it possible for you to create a private cloud for easy remote access and file sharing with anyone as long as you have access to the Internet. All you need is a smartphone or tablet and Buffalo's free Android, iOS, or Windows app to enjoy full access to the digital content on your LinkStation 520DN.
User-Friendly Setup and Intuitive Web-Based Interface
The LinkStation 520DN has a graphical user interface that simplifies setup and use of the system. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions and you're on your way to secure network storage within minutes.
Premium-Grade HDDs for Performance & Reliability
The LinkStation 520DN comes with premium-grade hard drives, providing improved performance and durability for always-on storing, sharing, and streaming files. In addition to powerful performance, these hard drives result in lower operating costs and have longer average lifetimes. All you have to do is select how much storage space you want.
Designed to Minimize Power Consumption
Who doesn't want lower utility costs? The LinkStation 520DN's power control feature includes on/off scheduling, Wake-on-LAN, and hard drive spin down. These features enable the 520DN to stop working when you do, reduce power consumption, and extend the product's lifespan.
The LinkStation 520DN is DLNA-compatible, so you can stream content from your computer, tablet, or smartphone to smart televisions and devices that are also DLNA-compatible.
NovaBACKUP software from NovaStor is included for managing backups on PCs, while the LinkStation 520DN also works with Apple Time Machine and is ready for multi-client Mac backups.
