With capacities up to 4 TB, a new, unique and compact industrial design, the LinkStation Quad addresses all the needs of today’s power user.

The LinkStation Quad features a new BitTorrent client, enabling consumers to access and download multimedia files without the need of a PC running during the download and a built-in DLNA™ multimedia server, which can stream digital content directly to any DLNA player on your network.
