TeraStation's NAS Safe

Extremetech has grabbed one of Buffalo's TeraStation home servers, a NAS solution that bears a remarkable resemblance to a safe.  It is home to 4 Western Digital Caviar 7200rpm 250GB EIDE hard drives, defaulted to give you a 700Gb RAID 5 setup, though there are other options. 

"Shopping for a terabyte NAS box can be conflicting. You wonder: "Should I build my own? Hard

drives are so cheap these days, and I am so gifted with technology! It would be a waste of talent

not to…" Add up the cost of drives, a motherboard, case, RAID controller, gigabit Ethernet card,

backup software, and the numbers might come out in your favor—maybe by a wide margin. Then again,

they might not. Companies like Buffalo Technologies have set their sites on the low-cost NAS

market with the intention of changing our minds. They're making their compact, quiet, and

full-warranty NAS boxes cheaper, faster, and more tempting to even die-hard tech enthusiasts"
