How can I find out which Terastation I have?

  • By looking at the design + color of the case

The TS and the HS are the same from the hardware point of view.

What about the differences in hardware between the different Terastations?

*1: the original Terastation and the Terastation Homeserver are identical from the hardware point of view. You can identify them from each other by the small red HS logo at the bottom right of the front panel. The original terastation has PCAST media server integrated, but the HS features a Mediabolic DLNA compatible Mediaserver in addition to PCAST.
