Buffalo Herds the Data


Several years ago I needed a very reliable drive to store backup data every month. I purchased a Buffalo external drive. The Drive has worked flawlessly. So when I needed a reliable drive to store my image data, I looked at the specs of Buffalo's current offerings. I purchased the drive and found it easy to install. It has been operational for several weeks and hasn't dropped a bit. When you can install hardware and forget about it, you have a winner.


Buffalo DriveStation Axis Velocity USB 3


plug it in and it is ready to go...no set up required...fast even on usb 2.0....quiet


plug in and go!


this unit is just right for my needs...it is fast, quiet, and simple to operate...i just plugged it in and it came up completely by itself...i proceeded to run 10000 photos, videos and documents into it with out a hitch...they retrieve eaisly and all are there...i do not have usb 3.0 capability but 2.0 is very fast...the whole process took 20 minutes... if it had a power switgh it would be perfect.
