Specifications and A Closer Look
Buffalo TS5810DN Specifications
The specifications are taken directly from the manufacturer’s homepage and they’re valid at the time of review. They may be subject to change in future revisions of the product.
Now that we know what the TS5810DN can do, it’s time to take a closer look at the unit itself. The front door covers all the drive bays, giving it a sleek appearance. The drive trays are all labelled for easy location and identification.
Above the drive trays and the cover door, is the connection and information area. There’s a power button, several status LEDs, and a USB 3.0 port. You also get a lovely status display for general information and notifications.
The USB port is hidden behind a rubber cover.
The drive bay door is covered with a mesh netting, preventing too much dust from entering the unit.
The rear side has two large fans to keep everything running cool and quiet. Next to them, you’ll find two USB 3.0 ports, 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and one 10GbE port.
At the top of the uni is a sticker with all the relevant information. This includes the units serial number as well as the MAC address for all three network connections.
Next to it and above the 2nd fan is the power connector. It is a default PSU connector, making things easy. Below the power connector, is the hole for the PSU cable security.
The sides don’t have any features as such, but there are a few air-intake holes.
The bottom is highly unspectacular. The only thing we see here, are the four large rubber feet which will make sure the unit has a firm stand. They also help prevent vibrations from travelling between the unit and its surface.
