A $100 networked media adapter handling music, photos and video sure got our attention. But Jim Buzbee found that Buffalo made too many compromises to get under that magic hundred dollar mark.
About a year ago we looked at three products representing three technologies that claimed to deliver higher wireless speed and extended range. This time it's eight MIMO and one non-MIMO product that Tim Higgins put to the test, with surprising results.
Sometimes all you need is an incremental tweak to a product to give it new appeal. Buffalo Technology has done just that with a gigabit Ethernet version of its popular LinkStation NAS line. Tim Higgins puts the Giga through its paces and finds some performance surprises.
Push-button wireless security setup holds the promise of enabling mere mortals to quickly and easily lock down their wireless LANs. We examine two technologies with similar goals and find them more alike than different.
You can never be too rich, too thin, or have enough storage - especially if you're a digital media packrat. Buffalo Technology feels your pain and its TeraStation NAS can help ease it, but be prepared to be a little less rich if you go for it.
The Buffalo Technology LinkTheater combines a progressive-scan DVD player, and networked multimedia adapter capable of handling streaming music and HD display of photos and movies. Jim Buzbee takes it for a spin and finds a lot, but not everything, to like.
Sometimes innovative products are the ones that just bundle the right combination of existing capabilities into an easy-to-use package. We found that Buffalo Technology's WZR-RS-G54 fits this bill and merits a look if you frequently need to reach back into your LAN from afar.
An increasing number of consumer networking products are based on open source software. But manufacturer support of open source development efforts is usually limited to (sometimes) posting source code but more often just turning a blind eye as dedicated hackers add missing capability and improved features. Buffalo Technology's new Revolution division is taking a different approach of embracing open source developers and producing products made to be hacked. Jim Buzbee takes a look at the first fruits of the Revolution, the Kuro Box.
Now that the novelty of "flash key" sized wireless adapters has worn off, manufacturers are faced with coming up with other ways to make their products stand out. Buffalo Technology's WLI-U2-KG54-AI has a unique approach that may be attractive to the less-organized among us.
Buffalo Technology's WLA2-G54 AirStation 54Mbps Wireless Compact Repeater Bridge packs a lot of features into a tiny box. Its name is a little misleading, so read our review and learn all that this little wonder will do!
