The Buffalo Technology DriveStation HD-HXU3 (1.5TB) offers big storage and fast speeds at a reasonable price, but its appeal is limited by compatibility. If you don't have or need USB 3.0, there are cheaper drives to be found. Buy it...

Buffalo's USB 3.0-based DriveStation HD-HXU3 is perfect for users who want a 1TB external hard drive on which to store large media files. It's approximately three times faster than a USB 2.0 drive when reading and writing large files and this is...

It may well be that there are further optimisations that can be achieved with the drivers, and we'd hesitate to say that this would be the performance of the final Australian retail version, but it's a good guideline as to...

The Buffalo DriveStation External USB 3.0 Hard Drive HD-UX3 achieved terrific transfer speeds, challenging the inherent maximum speed of the hard disk as much as an internal SATA bus. Based on these figures, you neednt wait a whole day to fill...

There’s something a little special about the Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3 external hard drive we’re looking at today. It’s not the casing, which is a glossy plastic variant of what every other manufacturer offers; it’s not the...

Bei der Buffalo DriveStation USB 3.0 1 TB sticht sofort das wuchtige Design ins Auge. Die Bodenhaftung, die die externe 3,5-Zoll-Festplatte so vermittelt, spiegelt sich auch in dem hohen Gewicht von über einem Kilogramm (ohne Netzteil) wieder....

Ce disque externe 3,5 pouces est plus cher (229 euros) et un peu plus encombrant que la moyenne, mais il se rattrape largement par ses excellentes performances et sa fonction de chiffrement qui garantit la scurit de vos donnes. De...

Auch wenn die USB-Schnittstelle ohnehin nicht unbedingt als Flaschenhals gilt, halten wir ein Upgrade auf 3.0-fhige Komponenten durchaus fr sinnvoll. Gerade bei Anwendern, die groe Datenmengen extern auslagern mchten, ist der...

Jamen jeg kan nsten ikke f armene ned. Endelig en begejstring over et produkt og en teknologi som "vil noget". Det er helt sikkert, at de mennesker som arbejder med store filer og backup's, vil kunne investere i eksterne USB 3.0 medier...

Ytelsen kan ikke sies vre annet enn svrt god, og Buffalo leverer ogs et harddiskkabinett som det ikke er mye utsette p. Riktignok opplevde vi at litt vibrasjoner ble overfrt mellom disk og skrivebord, hvilket...

Buffalos Drivestation HD-HXU3 stt in Leistungsbereiche vor, die bislang E-SATA-Laufwerken vorbehalten waren. Kopiervorgnge lassen sich so deutlich verkrzen. Die Vorteile kommen aber nur in Verbindung mit einem USB-3.0-Controller...
