Top Customer Reviews
The secret to this drive is that it has a 1 GB cache of DDR3 memory, which allows the drive to write/read at ridiculous speeds. Used in conjunction with an SSD in my computer, I've gotten sustained speeds of roughly 200 MBps - read and write. As far as I've researched, that is the fastest a drive has hit yet.
The Buffalo software that's on the drive is pretty much unnecessary - again, unless you plan on turning off the cache ability, which you shouldn't - the software is really superfluous. You could use SecureLock to encrypt the drive - I find it's a little slow. I use BitLocker - works fine. You can also use any of the various 3rd party encryption tools out there...
Just a couple of concerns -- one, there's only one drive in here. So if you're paranoid about losing data, you may want another backup. Another thing is that there's no easy way to switch out the drive. This is like the pie in the sky for me - it would be nice if external drive makers made this easier to do - especially if the drive does fail. The third thing you'll need to be careful of -- since the drive temporarily writes to a DDR cache, if the drive loses power while data is in the cache, it's gone. Period. Had a power outage when I was copying data (thank goodness I was just copying), and there appears to be no temp power supply in the drive to allow the data that's in the cache to finish copying to the actual HDD. So it disappeared.Read more ›
