If you like to make sure you get your favourite (very lucky) friend or family member a piece of technology that's nice and future proof and they've recently mentioned their data storage availability is tipping the edge, what better way to spoil them then to hook them up with the world's first USB 3.0 External Hard Drive.
Buffalo has a beauty out; this dubbed the DriveStation HD-HXU3 which will be sure to put a big smile on their face when they pull away the wrapping, and it sure looks the part, too. Depending on how generous you're feeling, the HD-HXU3 can be had in 1, 1.5 and 2TB capacities, with associating MSRPs ranging from 199.99 to 399.99.
With USB 3.0 already starting to show up on some enthusiast motherboards, by this time next year the support will be plentiful with many more board manufacturers standardizing their models with USB 3.0 and there also being plenty of options as far as PCIe USB 3.0 controllers go for users not wishing to upgrade their system. So either way, the ability to make use of the far superior connectivity is easily accessible and the 100+MB/sec speeds from this handy portable storage medium will be enough to keep that smile on their lucky face for a long time to come.
