I was looking for a reliable ruggedized external drive that would standup to normal everyday usage. I did not expect the drive to withstand extreme abuse or misuse, just the normal wear and tear of daily use and transport. I had previously purchased a "Passport" that failed after a slight bump, it was not abused, just bumped. Needless to say I lost data that was difficult to recreate/replace. I read the available reviews and settled on a Buffalo Extreme drive. I have not been disappointed. I was so pleased with my original purchase (over a year ago) that I have purchase several more and recommended them to friends and family, a recommendation that I do not give lightly.

I am very unhappy with the product and the support from Buffalo.

I bought this as I had had a disk failure in my laptop and needed somewhere 'secure' and 'reliable' to keep all my files, music, correspondence, personal admin and finance information. Rather than commit my data again to an internal hard drive, I kept it on my 'US Military Grade Shock Protection' Extreme Ministation and backed it up occasionally to a second external HDD of the same brand. That was a mistake. There is a controller or microprocessor board which sits in front of the hard drive itself.
The controller failed on my Ministation. I had enabled hardware encryption. I phoned Buffalo support and they 'diagnosed' the fault in 30 seconds, stated that not the controller but the hard drive had failed and confirmed they would pay the warranty.

The problem is that it isn't the drive that failed, as I discovered after I had opened it up - it was actually the Buffalo technology itself that had failed, and buffalo didn't want to assist me with exploring that consideration. They certainly didn't want to help me recover my data. The technical support people were really obnoxious about not wanting to help any further - they were unwilling to refer the case to anyone better than their team leader - essentially their team is there to assist with warranties and not technical support. Both the UK and the US support were both the same - very junior, quite brusque and certainly no help.

I've had this drive for about a year and have been mightily impressed. I partitioned the drive to use as a Time Machine backup and general storage for my Macbook Air and it has performed solidly with no difficulties whatsoever. I haven't used it to edit off of, but its speeds seem fast enough that it would be able to handle it.

As i mentioned in the title, that built-in USB cord is really wonderful. It's really great not to have to carry around or untangle another cord that's way longer than it needs to be. With no additional USB or power cords needed, i can just grab the drive and go if i want to take it to a friend's to copy movies or music. It makes me wonder why all small portable drives don't have this ultra-useful feature — and when something has a feature so helpful that it makes those without it seem stupid, you know you got something good.

Color Name: RedSize Name: 1 TB Verified Purchase
I had had the drive for 36 hours when it stopped connecting to any USB port on any machine. It was intermittent at first and then would not connect at all. There is a cable that is held in a groove in the housing and a separate extension cable. The Achilles heel is the upper corner of the machine where the connection is levered when the loose end is used. I called Buffalo and they were there as promised 24/7. The tech asked if I had checked the cables and I had. I asked him if I could pull the corner out where the rubber cap is and he said no. I still don't know if it's a plug in connector at the corner? We were going to do an RMA if Amazon wouldn't take it back. Before calling Amazon I pressed firmly on the corner and the drive was ressurected. It now works every time. I plan to keep it unless the cable breaks at that spot or it becomes a recurring issue. Otherwise the drive is well built and solid feeling. It is fast enough for me in spite of the 5400 RPM rating. I don't notice a big difference hooked up to a USB 3 or USB 2 port and it only average about 5-30 MB/sec depending on file sizes in the transfer but I really need the 256 encryption. The encryption software is user friendly with the ability to enable auto detect to a machine if you desire. I hope it holds up!

With this hard drive you don't have to worry about losing your files and programs due to a drop or hitting it. Gives me a piece of mind. You get what you pay for, yea it's a bit pricy, but worth it.
