If giving Buffalo the ultimatum to 'go big or go home,' don't bother setting out a dinner plate, it may be out on the range for awhile. The Texas-based network and storage solutions provider announced it is now stuffing 4TB hard drive drives into select storage devices, including the TeraStation 5000 series of business-class network and iSCSI storage devices, the LinkStation Pro home and small office network storage device, and the DriveStation Axis USB 3.0 external hard drive.

Need speed from your router in the worst way? Buffalo has you covered. The company has just released the new AirStation WZR-D1800H wireless router and WLI-H4-D1300 wireless media bridge, both of which are available now. Based on Broadcom's 5G WiFi chips, both of 'em offer speeds up to three times faster than 802.11n and are fully backward compatible with 802.11a, 11b, 11g and 11n to ensure interoperability with legacy devices. You may have heard of 802.11n, but 802.11ac is clearly what's next. It operates in the largely clutter-free 5GHz zone, offering transfer speeds up to 1300 Mbps, ideal for... Read more...
Need a new hard drive for storing files on the go? Don't think too hard, we're sure you do. Question is, which one to buy? You've got tons and tons of options these days, from Seagate to WD to LaCie and beyond. But the newest pair of external hard drives here are coming from Buffalo's labs.

Network storage seems to be growing more and more popular these days, as broadband becomes more widely available and people are continually on the move. Local storage is very limited by proximity, whereas NAS units can be accessed from anywhere in the world where an Internet connection is available. Buffalo understands the market dynamics, and they're introducing a new line of consumer NAS units in the V-Series. These new devices are being added to the LinkStation lineup; the new high performance V-Series line now consists of the LinkStation Pro, LinkStation Pro Duo and LinkStation Pro Quad. Each...

Looking to beef up your storage potential? Who isn't, right? Buffalo is one of the bigger names in the dedicated storage business, and today they are refreshing their DriveStation family. That's a pretty robust family, with the DriveStation Duo and DriveStation Quad (formerly Quattro) seeing updates. The new multi-drive external units ship with NovaBACKUP Business Essentials, and if you aren't in need of multiple drives just yet, the newly announced DriveStation Axis should be perfect given its single-drive status. The DriveStation Quad is a 4-drive, RAID enabled storage solution for small servers,... Read more...
Buffalo may not hold the same level of household recognition compared to a LaCie, Seagate or Western Digital, but in the NAS world, it's a trusted name. Network Attached Storage solutions have been this company's wheelhouse for years now, and for those looking to get started in a simple way with a reliable face in the industry, there's hardly a better option on paper than the LinkStation Mini.Designed not for the SMB crowd, but for the home users who need a more reliable way to backup and access their archived data, this new sleek, compact dual-drive device features an increase in performance,...

Not sure if you've heard, but USB 3.0 is "the hot new thing." We're expecting a full rollout of devices that support the faster protocol early next year, but it looks as if Buffalo is joining Freecom in pushing out products before most folks even have a chance to add USB 3.0 support to their PC. Starting this week, Buffalo is shipping its first-ever SuperSpeed USB 3.0 External Hard Drive, labeled the DriveStation HD-HXU3. It promises transfer rates up to 625 MB per second (or five Gbits per second), and it's backward-compatible with USB 2.0 ports and devices. It's shipping in 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB... Read more...
In the never-ending race to produce a flash memory device that'll become lost the moment you unwrap it from its packaging, Buffalo has developed this: the 16GB microSD USB card reader.Put simply, this nub of a flash memory device--which looks about as large as Logitech's latest USB receivers--holds 16GB of information on its own. But, knowing that that'll never be enough for you, Buffalo also included a microSD/microSDHC slot, so you can toss another 16GB in through that. All told, you're looking at having at least 32GB of storage in a device barely bigger than your thumbnail, which is both useful... Read more...
Slowly but surely, we're witnessing the capacity levels of external solid state drives creep up. While internal drives have been shipping at 128GB for some time now, the external world is in dire need of matching alternatives. Japan's own Buffalo has stepped in to do the honors, offering up a new SHD-NSUM series of small, pocket-friendly SSDs to carry on-the-go.The family currently consists of a trio of drives: the 32GB SHD-NSUM32G, 64GB SHD-NSUM64G and the 128GB SHD-NSUM128G. All of the units posses a speedy SATA II interface and a USB 2.0 socket. The real kicker here is the pricing, which --... Read more...
Got 113,000 Japanese yen burning a hole in your pocket? That's 495 British Pounds. The money pound, not the weight pound. At any rate, if you've got about $1000 American, you can now afford 100 GB of flash storage, courtesy of Buffalo Japan. Awesome.The company's new SHD-UHRS series of SSDs goes on sale at the end of this month, starting with a 32GB model and culminating in that 100GB whopper. Anyone expecting an internal SATA interface for sticking the thing in a PC will, however, be disappointed as it's an external USB 2.0 only device.Still, that amount of fast, solid-state storage isn't to be...
