Could this be the right hard drive for me?
This Buffalo MiniStation (Manufacturer’s Code: HD-PCF1.0U3BB-EU) is perfect for anyone looking for a portable hard drive to back up or store collections of music or pictures. The 1TB hard drive provides you with enough space for approximately 17,000 hours of music or 310,000 high resolution pictures, giving you more than enough space for archiving your favourite songs or pictures. Moving these files from your computer to the hard drive shouldn’t take long either as USB 3.0 can transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.

Will this hard drive be compatible with my computer?
Thankfully USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, so even if you only have USB 2.0 ports the hard drive will still operate. The only downside of using this hard drive in a USB 2.0 port would be that you do not get the full transfer speed benefits, like you would if you were using it in a USB 3.0 port. This hard drive is compatible with both Windows and Mac (OS 10.6 or later) computers, so you can plug this in and start using it straight away. Included is Buffalo’s TurboPC EX software that can be installed to boost transfer speeds, however this is only compatible with Windows computers.
