Buffalo Technology is one of the very few vendors that have been pushing Thunderbolt technology. Just a few months back, we had the chance to review the MiniStation Thunderbolt, an external hard drive equipped with the first generation of Thunderbolt technology. Today, we have another Thunderbolt product from Buffalo equipped with two 256GB SSDs.
The DriveStation Mini Thunderbolt is a dual drive storage solution setup with your choice of two 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB SSDs. This solution is RAID enabled, offering options such as JBOD, RAID 0, and RAID 1 if you want that extra bit of data redundancy. With the DriveStation, you have the ability to daisy chain up to 6 more devices via Thunderbolt, and Buffalo was even kind enough to supply the retail packaging with the Thunderbolt cable, so this unit is basically plug and play.
Compatibility of the Buffalo DriveStation Mini Thunderbolt extends to OS X 10.6+, and of course, you will need an available Thunderbolt port.
Pricing, Availability and Specifications
MSRP for the 512GB DriveStation Mini Thunderbolt is set at $649.99 with a three-year warranty. Availability is high at this point with many online retailers having the unit in stock.
