Kuro Box

The Kuro Box is the name for a series of PowerPC and ARM processor based computers intended for use as a network-attached storage device. The original Kuro Box was made from spare hardware components the manufacturer had from the Linkstation. Recent versions of the Kuro Box use later Linkstation hardware or hardware very similar to the one of the Linkstation. All Kuro Box versions are provided without a Hard Drive. The case has the same physical dimensions and shape as the LinkStation, but it is black in color and has the Kanji symbols for Kuro Box () in silver lettering on the side panel.It has an internal Parallel ATA or SATA interface for a user supplied hard drive (as the device does not come with one). The product was designed to accept a Linux distribution, several have been ported to it by various user groups in both the USA/Europe and Japan. It is sold by Buffalo Technology/Melco
