External HDD: MiniStation Plus With USB 3.0
If you’re looking for a lightning fast portable hard drive, the MiniStation Plus may be just for you. The Buffalo MiniStation is a new USB 3.0 external hard drive that is not much larger than a deck of cards.
The hard drive is enclosed in a shockproof chassis and is available in two capacities and three colors. Most people don’t need too much storage space, in which case the 500GB model was designed just for you and is priced at $85.
For a 1TB drive, users will find themselves paying $120 and having the option of choosing between black, silver, and red. If you’ll be needed to transfer your data at high speeds, USB 3.0 works as fast as 5Gbps making it ideal for transferring data back onto your computer after a windows formatting.
The drive even has a special LED meter that constantly keeps the user informed about how much capacity has been used, giving ideas on when it might be time to get another hard drive without having to manually look at the folder properties.
Finally, you can rest assured that your data will stay save with a 256-bit AES encryption while the drive can freely work with both Windows and Mac computers.
