Question about Buffalo NAS devices

I'm pricing out Buffalo NAS options for a client (MAC environment). I was chatting online with Buffalo sales, and they said that their LinkStation 220 is not the same high spec as their TeraStation line.

My client will have 8 users, but only 2 frequent users, file storage only, no streaming, no databases.  Is there any reason to believe the LinkStation will not perform well?

Thanks.  The Buffalo support person said that the LinkStation Home version was RAID (though it looks from the spec as though RAID *can* be installed upon setup, rather than it being pre-installed.)  Does that sound right for this device?

LinkStation units can support RAID 0 or 1. If you wanted RAID 5, then get a TeraStation.
