Claims to provide data faster transfers using USB 3.0 and TurboPC EX.
Buffalo Technologies has been in the storage business since a long time internationally, but it is yet to make a real impression in the crowded Indian market. To gain a foothold, the company has launched DriveStation Velocity, which is an external hard drive with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface.
The DriveStation Velocity also comes with a proprietary disk-caching solution known as TurboPC EX, similar to what it offers with many other storage products, which claims to speed up the data transfer. The drive comes in a glossy polymer enclosure housing a 7200 RPM hard drive within. It allows horizontal as well as vertical placement. Data security is taken care of by the Secure Lock Manager Easy, which easily encrypts and decrypts data as required. The drive also features hardware encryption for additional security against unauthorised access.
The Buffalo DriveStation Velocity comes in three capacities: HD-LX1.0TU3 (1 TB), HD-LX2.0TU3 (2 TB), HD-LX3.0TU3 (3 TB), for suggested retail prices of Rs 4500, Rs 7282, and Rs 12,100. All Buffalo drives come with a 3-year replacement warranty.
