The Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3
The Buffalo HD-HXU3 arrived to us in piano black and is quite attractive. At the bottom left there is a slot for a security cable and at the bottom right some ventilation slots.
The front of the unit is pretty straight forward. At the top there is an LED that lights up blue when the device is connected to a USB 3.0 port.
The other side has more vents to allow air to pass through the system and in this image we can also see that the bottom has vents as well.
Starting at the top, we see more ventilation. Just behind the openings is a small fan that circulates air past the hard drive keeping it cool. In testing we found the drive to be very quiet and were not able to hear it at a two foot distance.
At the bottom is where you will find the USB 3.0 data port as well as the power plug.
Here we can take a closer look at the USB 3.0 data port. A regular USB 1.1/2.0 plug can be inserted into the plug, but it will only operate at USB 2.0 speeds.
The Buffalo USB 3.0 DriveStation comes with a full instruction manual, a USB 3.0 data cord and the external power supply for the enclosure. Buffalo also included four rubber feet that will help keep the drive from slipping on your desk.
