Buffalo introduces 500GB USB LinkStation Mini

By Justin Mann on March 10, 2008, 1:29 PM
With hard drive manufacturers beginning to creep out 500GB mobile units, such as Fujitsu and Samsung, retailers were bound to start offering the behemoth units in ready-to-go little packages.

Buffalo is introducing a 500GB USB MiniStation unit, offering increased transfer speeds due to the higher density of the disk and of course a lot more space than most USB portable units. At an introductory cost of $329, it would make more sense for techies to just buy their own USB enclosures and slap one together, but that $329 also gets you a shock-resistant case and “SecureLockWare” data protection. They also pitch their backup software, such as the ones just about all storage vendors are offering with these prebuilt units. The day when a terabyte of data in your back pocket is possible is quickly approaching.
