Buffalo unveils sleek piano-black MiniStation and DriveStation


London UK, 22 March 2011 - Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage and wireless networking solutions, has announced a stylish design for its external storage range.


Available now, the glossy, piano-black MiniStation portable device and the DriveStation desktop hard drive, will allow users to add additional external storage to any computer or laptop simply using a USB port.




The smooth, lightweight and portable MiniStation is USB powered, meaning there is no additional power supply needed. Available in 500GB and 1.0TB, the MiniStation offers a compact, stylish solution that enables users to store, back up and transport digital images, music and other files without taking up additional storage space from your PC's hard drive.


The black glossy DriveStation comes in both USB 2.0 for the price conscious consumer and USB 3.0 for users wanting faster transfer speeds and automatic backup. The easy to use, plug-and-play device is pre-formatted meaning it is available for immediate use. Not only is it silent, the auto installation and auto power on/off means you can quickly store, access, and transfer files, digital images, documents, and perform back-ups. This single drive device can be positioned vertically or horizontally, conveniently allowing for an efficient use of space. The DriveStation can be purchased in 1TB or 2TB for the USB 2.0 version and 1TB, 2TB and 3TB for the USB 3.0 version.




"Product innovation and engineering excellence have always been at the heart of Buffalo's core values," said Paul Hudson, Sales Director Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology. "Continuing in this tradition, Buffalo is launching a new desktop and portable storage family, providing a balanced blend of reliability, performance and styling at accessible prices for today's ever growing storage needs."
