SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hard DriveBuffalo is the 2nd company to announce a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 external hard drive.Â Although anyone can make the claim, we know the players who mean what they say.Â 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.Â 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.Â You can expect the USB 3.0 hard drive from Buffalo to ship in Asia and UK markets by end of Q4 andÂ the US by early 2010.
