Buffalo Technology, pioneers in the field of storage and wireless networking solutions, has introduced to the world one of the fastest external hard drives designed ever. The company unveils its DriveStation DDR, a next-generation external drive that would suffice to eliminate performance bottlenecks on any platform, including Mac and Windows. The DriveStation DDR is set out to change the way you transfer data back and forth from PC to your hard drive.
DriveStation DDR features write speeds of 400 MB/sec (or above) and read speeds of 330 MB/s (or above). This is estimated to be five times the speed offered by its predecessors and almost twice the data transfer rate of any close competitors. This achievement can be attributed to the built-in cache that uses 1 GB of DDR3 memory to improve data transfer speeds.
The drive also features a USB 3.0 interface to provide a simple plug and play setup. Further, DriveStation DDR comes bundled with Buffalo Tools, a comprehensive software suite that provides consumers with a range of additional features, such as performance optimization, energy conservation, battery management, and PC backups. Buffalo Tools also includes SecureLock software for Windows that provides password protection and data encryption on your DriveStation DDR.
The high performance offered by Buffalo DriveStation DDR empowers you to carry out blazing fast transfers. You can transfer 800 MBs of digital content from your PC to the drive in a matter of just 3.5 seconds and approximately 3000 digital photos in less than 13.1 seconds. With this, DriveStation DDR seems to be a major innovation in the external storage market. Besides high data transfer speeds, the drive gives you huge capacity.
DriveStation DDR comes in two storage capacities, 2 TB and 3 TB, and is compatible with almost all operating systems, including Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
