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. The company has just launched two new portable HDD solutions, the MiniStation Stealth and the DriveStation Axis LED.


Both of these are external units, with the Stealth staying true to its name and being the most portable. The other guy is a single drive storage solution combining a unique LED capacity meter display with easy to use features and reliable performance. The Stealth is a USB-powered unit that works with Macs and PCs, while the other can be positioned vertically or horizontally and also interfaces via USB. Included with both the MiniStation Stealth and the DriveStation Axis LED is Buffalo's multi-purpose Buffalo Tools utility suite, but you'll need a PC to take advantage.

The MiniStation Stealth will be available November in the US market at estimated street prices of $74.99 for the 320 GB (HD-PCT320U2/B), $89.99 for the 500 GB (HD-PCT500U2/B) and $104.99 for the 640 GB (HD-PCT640US/B). The DriveStation Axis LED will be available in January 2011 at estimated street prices of $99.99 for the 1 TB (HD-LEM1.0TU2) and $159.99 for the 2 TB (HD-LEM2.0TU2).
