Buffalo Technology DriveStation HD-HXU3 (1.5TB)


The Buffalo Technology DriveStation HD-HXu3 (1.5TB) offers big storage at a reasonable price, but the drive's zippy USB 3.0 connection is the real draw.

Big storage in a slim enclosure. USB 3.0 offers fast transfer speeds. Backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

Glossy plastic shows every finger print and smudge.

Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3 USB 3.0 Review


If you're looking for an insanely fast external drive, then this is it.

Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3 review


After a long wait, we're now starting to see real USB 3.0 products in the wild, like this Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3 1TB USB 3.0 hard drive. It's not a moment too soon.

Our first test of a USB 3.0 drive shows the wait was worth it. These are terrific transfer speeds, challenging the inherent maximum speed of the hard disk as much as an internal SATA bus. Based on these figures, you needn't wait a whole day to fill...

Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3 USB 3.0 Hard Drive


Ardjuna takes a look at the wonderful new world of USB 3.0 and the first external hard drive to offer it.

As an external 3.5in hard drive the Buffalo DriveStation HD-HXU3 is solid if unremarkable, but its use of the new USB 3.0 standard elevates it to a whole new level above previous external desktop drives we have seen. Of course there will soon be no...
