Buffalo External Drive features Quad-Interface

Buffalo External Drive features Quad-Interface

Have you noticed the popularity of FireWire is slowly declining in PC industry? Take 1394B or FW 800 for example, you don’t see them anymore. I have a 5-year old Abit mobo with four FireWires built-in, pair of 800 and 400 each, but you barely get one with FW400 these days. Pity, I like the speed of FireWire better than USB 2.0 when it comes to external drive or card reader. But there’s one better than both, the Esata.

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

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 SHD-UHRS – 100GB external solid state drive

Buffalo SHD-UHRS – 100GB external solid state drive

Solid state drives are still quite expensive, however it has many advantages such as lower operating power consumption and generates less heat. Now, 2.5-inch SSD is nice but for an external storage, the smaller the better; so Buffalo made the SHD-UHRS external SSD with smaller dimensions in mind. The external USB 2.0 drive is almost the same size as a credit card and comes with 100GB of drive space. This 60 grams external SSD drive will cost you a hefty 100.000 Yen or around $885.

Put 100GB of SSD in your pocket! [via akihabaranews]

Buffalo WHR-HP-G54DD – First router to come preinstalled with DD-WRT

Buffalo WHR-HP-G54DD – First router to come preinstalled with DD-WRT

If you've never heard of DD-WRT, it's a gamer's best friend. More specifically, it is a firmware that can be used on many popular routers to give you greater control over it. I've personally installed it on a cheap Buffalo router and currently use it to make my Xbox 360 connect to the internet wirelessly without having to purchase Microsoft's $100 adapter. Like I said, a gamer's best friend.

Apparently Buffalo has noticed a trend in people hacking their routers with this firmware, so they've decided to offer the first commercial router with DD-WRT preinstalled. I must commend Buffalo on this decision, as the DD-WRT firmware isn't just good for making a cheap wireless card for your 360 (or any other device with an ethernet port) but it also is a bit more secure than what you'll find installed on many routers.

Buffalo DriveStation – Now with a Turbo button

Buffalo DriveStation – Now with a Turbo button

Do you remember those old PCs that had Turbo buttons? I barely do, I think they were just a little before my time. Then again, I was playing with a Mac, so I didn't really mess with PCs back then. If you've missed the days of speeding things up with just the press of a Turbo button, you'll be happy to hear that Buffalo is bringing it back.
