SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hard Drive

Buffalo is the 2nd company to announce a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 external hard drive.  Although anyone can make the claim, we know the players who mean what they say.  Buffalo always delivers so we are anxious to get the green light on purchasing…the DriveStation by Buffalo is the fastest USB hard drive on the market [or will be] with transfer speeds over 125MBs/second.  WOW.

According to USB-IF, Buffalo HD-HXU3 will be powered by Fujitsu MB86C30A USB 3.0 to SATA IC. If Buffalo’s current DriveStation series is any indication, Buffalo will likely use the Fujitsu IC’s AES USB encryption engine, and ship with some version of Memeo’s AutoSync backup software. Also launched is a USB 3.0 card to take advantage of the new SuperSpeed USB mode. Buffalo will initially ship the USB 3.0 drive in 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB sizes and include the add-on card.  You can expect the USB 3.0 hard drive from Buffalo to ship in Asia and UK markets by end of Q4 and  the US by early 2010.

Buffalo USB Phone for Skype

Buffalo introduces their VH-MU01 USB phone for Skype and MSN chat so you can drop those headsets if you have a complex.  The Buffalo USB phone looks like a slim design with easy button navigation.  Any asstute reader will quickly realize there is no LCD or display for the phone.  Well, if you’re looking to get into USB phones for home or work, don’t let the lack of display worry you.

These phones are designed to work with software like Skype where the software on your computer provides the visual display you need.  So as you click the touch pad of the USB phone the action shows up on your Skype software. This type of USB phone makes using on-line VoIP more like the traditional phone.  However, if you just can’t part with the land-line setup than you should consider the MagicJack phone.  The MagicJack is a USB dongle which connects to your computer and on the other end of the dongle is a traditional phone connection.  Simply connect your good’ol phone to the dongle and you’re talking over VoIP.

I’m a big fan of portability. I’m a big fan of storage space. And I’m going to need to get some serious work-on to fill up the 300GB hard drive in addition to my standard 120GB HHD of my laptop. Not to say, I wouldn’t turn down some extra space. The Buffalo USB MiniStation (HD-PS320U2) is just over $300 and comes with Buffalo’s 256-bit AES encryption security software and Memeo’s autobackup utility. After all, out of 300GBs there has got to be something worth saving. Continue Reading

Not USB 3.0, But Speedy USB 2.0 by Buffalo

Buffalo figured out a way to turbo boost USB 2.0 to claim increased transfer speed of up-to 60%.

So what’s the deal? Buffalo gives no detail to this increased performance and makes a broad statement about Windows and Mac compatibility for the two new USB Turbo products, the MiniStation and DriveStation. I would figure Buffalo addressed power issues as many USB devices have poor power management which directly effects performance. The Buffalo MiniStation with Turbo USB is a portable storage device designed to withstand durable environment such as bumps, drops and turbulence (what?) you’d experience in everyday life. The Buffalo DriveStation with Turbo USB is a tower configuration ideal for home or office and includes a 7200 RPM SATA drive with Turbo USB enhancements. The MiniStation has a price range of $99 to $250 The DriveStation has a price range of $130 to $500. Buffalo Turbo USB information page Continue Reading
