London, UK, 1st September: Buffalo Technology, the global manufacturer of storage and networking solutions, today launches the LinkStation™ 520D, a large capacity storage solution ideal for consumers and businesses looking for speed, flexibility and usability without compromising performance.

The Ultimate File Share Station 

The high-spec machine features Dual-Core CPU, boasting impressive start-up and shutdown speeds, and enabling read and write up speeds of 100 Mb/s.

Users can easily back up data with NovaStor’s NovaBACKUP® for PC or TimeMachine for Mac.

Buffalo’s LS520D is also DLNA compatible and works with 3rd party File Management apps for both Android and iOS, to help users step-up their Digital Life and/or seamlessly blend into their existing set-up.

Quick and Easy 

The native interface allows for greater control on usage, especially when it comes to power consumption. The LS520D’s new extensive power controls allows for include on/off scheduling and HDD spin down, which means that the LS520 stops working when you do, resulting in significant reductions in power consumption.
