This is an almost new unitI bought it for a home media centre project but as I dont have time to do anything anymore, its been sitting in the cupboard. I have only used it once just to test it. Its a great unit and can be used for many different things. Great for resilience or speed there are various disk raid configurations to choose from. This was bought new for over £500
It supports gigabit Ethernet connections for speedy access of files/media streams and also has an in-built print server.
It is expandable by adding external drives via USB ports, although at 1TB (thats 1000GB) you would need to have a hell of a lot of data to want to expand this!
You can do all sort of things with this box.
1 Terabyte of Storage ideal for straight forward back-up and storage.
RAID support to allow massive volume or fault tolerant RAID 5.
Gigabit Ethernet with Jumbo Frame support ensures speedy delivery of large office files or multimedia streams.
Built-in print server for sharing and managing a USB print on the network.
External USB hard drives expand available network storage as needed cost effectively.
Powerful backup utility - allows easy setup and management of backups to or from the TeraStation and multiple network devices.
Oversized fan allows ultra-silent operation and minimal power consumption.
