Buffalo 2Share HDD, NAS
Buffalo Technology has unveiled the DriveStation 2Share external hard drive, which can be used either as a traditional hard disk to backup a single computer, or networked to allow sharing between several computers. The 2Share is available in 500GB, 640GB of 1TB capacities, all using one or two 3.5-inch 7,200rpm SATA drives. The models connect to computers via USB 2.0, and a network via Ethernet.
Buffalo says it has enhanced its drives with a "TurboUSB" feature, which improves USB transfer speeds by up to 37 percent when connected to Mac and Windows computers. Secure Lock encryption software is used to enhance security.
The DriveStation 2Share is available now, priced at an equivalent of $137 for the 500GB version, $148 for the 640GB version, and $205 for 1TB. [via Pocket-lint]
