Buffalo DriveStation – Now with a Turbo button

Chris Scott Barr - Aug 6, 2007

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.

Buffalo recently showed off the latest iteration of their DriveStation external drives. They’ve got a nice Turbo button that will increase data throughput by between 30 and 60 percent. This of course begs the question, why would you ever not use the button?

The drives will be available at the beginning of next month in 320GB, 500GB, 750GB and 1TB flavors. The smaller 320GB version will run you about $130 with prices going up to $500 for the 1TB drive.
