Buffalo TeraStation Pro Duo is a small ready to use NAS from Buffalo. The design of the NAS is not one my favourites. It looks like a cheap music device but this machine have some awesome specs: Dual Core CPU and 2 GB RAM.
I only know little about Buffalo but the company has a reputation for making some quality NAS devices. They are not as popular as Synology and QNAP though.
The NAS chassis is made of metal and the fan placed at the back is big, not that noisy and ít sure does look like a quality fan. It is most likely better than the fans that are placed in many Synology DiskStations. I had to replace the fan in my Synology DS211+ with a Noctua fan.
The TeraStation Pro is equipped with two hard drives (500 GB each) and it is possible to use RAID 0 and RAID 1. That is a good thing.
