Product Information

Buffalo Technology's LinkStation 520D series is a customisable, large capacity Network Attached Storage solution with great flexibility.

Dual Core CPU

The LS520D features a robust Dual Core processor and is super-fast with impressive start-up and shut down speed as well as read and write speeds up to 100 MB/s!

WebAccess - Free Apps

While on the go, Buffalo's free WebAccess service allows users to create a private cloud for easy remote access and file sharing with anyone, anywhere over the Internet. All you need is a Smartphone or tablet and Buffalo's free iOS, Windows or Android app to enjoy full access to the digital assets you keep on your LinkStation 520.

Organise Your Life

Ideal for home users, the new LinkStation 520 Series provides simple network storage and backup and offers an assortment of features, allowing users to store, organize, access and stream media files from any computer, smartphone or tablet. Buffalo's new LinkStation™ can also stream up to 4 HD films simultaneously allowing each family member to watch their favourite film, on their own device, at the same time.

The LS520 makes intensive data storage tasks easy, and users can choose from RAID 0/1/JBOD support for customised capacity and redundancy according to their specific needs. Backups are also made easy with NovaStor's NovaBACKUP Buffalo Edition for PC, or TimeMachine for Mac. LS520 users will enjoy its intuitive and quick interface and expanded power control features which include on/off scheduling, Wake on LAN, and HDD spin down. Thus enabling the LS520 to stop working when you do and greatly lessen its power consumption.

Buffalo's LS520 is also DLNA compatible and works with 3rd party File Management apps for Android and iOS to help you step-up your Digital Life and/or seamlessly blend in to your existing set-up.
