Buffalo MicroStation SSD: USB solid-state storage

Buffalo MicroStation SSD: USB solid-state storage

Buffalo have unveiled their latest MicroStation portable storage solution, and this time around the company has used SSD rather than a traditional hard-drive.  Available in three capacities - 32GB, 64GB and 100GB - the MicroStation SSD is USB powered, with no external PSU required, and the cable itself wraps around the drive when not in use.

SlashGear Week in Review – April 7th through April 13th

SlashGear Week in Review – April 7th through April 13th

This was a long week with no major events occurring, but there were some pretty big announcements. For starters we have a new BitTorrent Set Top Box from Myka, no more will you have to waste power by leaving your entire computer running all night just to get the latest screener from FXG or aXXo, and this little set top box will do it for you and then play it right from its hard drive for added ease. Then there were rumors abound of Blockbuster potentially putting out a new Set Top Box to push their movies, TV Shows, and other content out to.

Buffalo rolls out three Blu-Ray Burners, external and internal drives

Blu-ray is not only started to show dominant in CE fields, I have a feeling that future releases in PC industry will focus more on sole Blu-Ray recorder than the combo drive with HD-DVD. Take Buffalo for example, they will roll out three new Blu-Ray burners late of this month, one external with USB and two sata-internal drives. Yes, they have announced a combo drive back in CES with ability to read HD-DVD as well, but that was the beginning of HD-DVD downfall.

Buffalo LinkStation Pro Duo review

So I met with Buffalo at CES, and then shortly after they were kind enough to send me their LinkStation Pro Duo for review. I must say I am impressed, it is quite squarely aimed at business users, but for home users, it has some fairly useful features as well.
