Reviewing a drive isn ’ t very amazing. Exactly what can you state? “ It includes a storage space medium, is little, and surprisingly light. ” Thankfully, the Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt can easily add one important point to that litany of mundanity – a Thunderbolt interface and cable television that jacks the read and create accelerate to amazing levels – thereby turning a ho-hum assessment into a genuine barn-burner.
This $ 229 1TB drive is no slouch on design, either. It has two ports – one USB 3.0 / 2.0 jack and a Thunderbolt interface – and it ’ s clad in aluminum and white plastic, offering it a definitive Macintosh feel. The drive gets hot over lengthy periods of time however it ’ s entirely bus powered. It weighs a simple 9 ounces.
In my tests, I saw this drive hit RW speeds of about 97 MB/s, considerably faster than a USB 3.0 drive I checked and on par with exactly what you ’ d expect from a basic Thunderbolt drive. The very best thing, undoubtedly, is the fact that Buffalo features a Thunderbolt cable, a $ 50 value, right in the box. They also feature a USB 3.0 cable television for the technologically benighted.
A 500GB version will certainly cost you about $ 195, but it actually doesn ’ t make sense to get a smaller drive in this case.
So, in closing, I desire to modify the MiniStation Thunderbolt review with one vital point: “ It has a storage space medium, is little, and remarkably light and, most important, you get a $ 50 Thunderbolt cable television free of cost. It ’ s even truly quick. And quite. ”

Thunderbolt has been extremely slow to gain traction, but Buffalo Technology is joining the fray with a new low-cost external hard drive that supports the high-speed port. The MiniStation Thunderbolt itself doesn’t look special — it’s a 2.5-inch hard drive wrapped in a white-and-silver plastic exterior — but when you look at the port selection you’ll see that there is indeed something different about this portable drive. In addition to a sole Thunderbolt port, there’s a USB 3.0 port. That means that this drive will work with both Macs and PCs (though you’ll need to swap file systems, of course), so you won’t be stuck with a drive that only works with new, Thunderbolt-enabled machines. Thankfully, the drive is bus powered, leaving it…
Yes, you’ve seen these guys before, and now the latest PogoPlug offspring are ready to ship. Both PogoPlug Video and its storage-sporting cousin, the Buffalo CloudStor, put their own unique twist on the firm’s remote access service. As you might recall, PogoPlug Video, which is now available exclusively from Best Buy for $ 200, allows you to hook up your external hard drives and share streaming video, music, and images to devices anywhere with internet access. Buffalo’s CloudStor, on the other hand, provides the same cloud-based access, with a little something extra. It’s the first PogoPlug branded gadget to sport integrated storage, and comes in three iterations, ringing in at $ 150 for 1TB, $ 210 for 2TB, and $ 250 for the 2TB Pro version. Now you can share all your favorite kitten clips, without ever uploading them to YouTube. Isn’t that precious?

USB 3.0 is slowly but surely making its way into the mainstream. Buffalo in Japan today announced [JP] a total of four memory sticks with USB 3.0, with 8, 16, 32 and 64GB on board. The new devices only support Windows XP/Vista/7 machines though (you’ll get just USB 2.0 speed for Macs).
Buffalo promises transfer speeds of up to 71MB/s for the sticks (when plugged into compatible computers), as opposed to the about 23MB/s you get with USB 2.0.
The sticks are not the first of their kind, but they will be relatively affordable, at least when they drop into Japanese stores on December 1 (prices: 8GB: $ 33, 16GB: $ 59, 32GB: $ 113, and 64GB: $ 213). Buffalo is also selling products in the US and elsewhere, so chances are these USB 3.0 drives will make their way outside Japan soon.
BDXL is now entering the computer market, too. Pioneer Japan today announced [JP] the BDR-206MBK, the world’s first Blu-ray burner for PCs supporting the new format. The internal device is compatible to BD-R XL discs with three (100GB) or four layers (128GB) and BD-RE XL discs with 3 layers (100GB).
To make things complete, the BDR-206MBK also supports 3D Blu-ray discs. The burner will hit Japanese stores next month with a $ 372 price tag.
Buffalo announced [JP] a very similar model, the BRXL-6FBS-BK, today, (pictured below). The Buffalo model supports exactly the same BDXL discs as the Pioneer burner and plays 3D Blu-rays, too. Buffalo plans to ship the device in Japan next month with an open price model, also claiming the bragging rights for the world’s first PC BDXL disc burner.
At the same time, the company will start selling an external version, the BRXL-6U2 (pictured below), which features the same specs as the internal model and connects to your PC via USB 2.0.
Neither Pioneer nor Buffalo have announced international sales plans for these devices yet.
Look, we’ve all been there — you cruise home to hang with mom and pops, and one of the two asks if they can see those vacation images you took of the grandkids last month. “They’re on my hard drive at home,” you reply. Weeping commences, and your mum in particular scolds you for not “getting with the program” and “investing in a NAS drive.” It’s about time you listened, don’tcha think? Buffalo does, as it has just revealed a trio of new LinkStation drives (Pro, Pro Duo, Pro Quad) in the V-series ranging from 1TB to 8TB in size. The whole family looks mighty stylish for a Buffalo, and they’re all eager and willing to stream to DLNA-certified devices (hello, PS3 and Xbox 360!). The company claims that all three members — which sport a 1.6GHz CPU — can hit transfer speeds up to 76MB/sec, and a gratis WebAccess app enables you to pull up those images for gramps with your iPhone or iPad. The whole lot is available now starting at $ 189.99 (topping out at a whopping $ 1,039.99), and given that we both know you’ve know been schooled… well, let’s just say a new level of expectations have been set. Don’t blow it.

Are you a woman? Are you sick of seeing all those manly USB sticks around you every day? Then these four new models announced [JP] by Buffalo in Japan today might be right for you.
Aimed specifically at “mature women”, each model is available with 4GB or 8GB of storage. Color-wise, buyers can choose between Rich Brown, Shiny Coral, Royal White and the inevitable Glossy Pink.
Buffalo plans to start selling the pretty sticks in Japan at the beginning of April. The 4GB version will cost $28, while the 8GB sticks will go for $40. Buffalo is active outside Japan, too, but didn’t say anything about international sales. If you’re interested, Iâ€™d suggest contacting import/export specialists Japan Trend Shop, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya.
