IT Show 2012 - Cameras, Printers, Monitors & Storage Buying Guide

Storage - Buffalo


Need more space to store your stuff? Consider getting storage with USB3.0 if you have the port - transfer speeds can be up to ten times faster. USB3.0 is also backward-compatible with USB2.0, so you might as well get it anyway if you don't have a USB2.0 port to future-proof your purchase. Sadly, 2012, like 2011, still sees a dearth of Thunderbolt storage options.

Buffalo (Level 6, Booth 6346)


Buffalo MiniStation Extreme

How about a portable external HDD built to U.S. military-spec? The 1TB MiniStation Extreme is both rugged and fast, able to withstand shocks and USB3.0 compatible at the same time.

Buffalo MiniStation USB3.0

Another of Buffalo's star buys is the 500GB MiniStation USB3.0 which comes with - you guessed it - USB3.0. It's such a star buy though that only 200 pieces will be offered, so go fast if you want this!
