As NAS boxes go, this looks quite sexy.

the drivestations generally were only boxes with usb-ports.

so you can use it as an usb-disk.
i thought about a drivestation duo myself (the quattro is too expensive for me) as i would backup to the mirrored hdd`s.

question is IF this all just is hardware controlled. and i suppose there isn`t a real board like a nas used....where linux runs and so on....without this i see no chance.

OK, I get it now - DriveStation, not LinkStation...

The DriveStation Quattro is a "dump" external Direct Attached Storage.
This unit has an internal RAID-Chip to enable RAID 0, 1 or 5 and perform as an additional harddrive.

It is shipped with a slotbracket for external S-ATA port if you have an internal S-ATA onboard and a 2-Port eSATA PCI-card if you don't have S-ATA onboard. Therefore the external capacity of the DriveStation Quattro is direct mapped as local drive into your PC or server instead of an external network storage system like TeraStations.
