Storage gurus Buffalo are preparing to launch their toughest drives yet, after today announcing the release of the Buffalo MiniStation Extreme range.
Certified to US Military Standard MIL-STD-810F 516.5 Procedure IV, the MiniStation Extreme can take a tumble from a height of 2.3 metres without causing any damage to your precious data stored within. Rubberised parts and a shock resistant build all help make it the storage equivalent of Charles Bronson.
It’s a speedy bit of kit too, managing transfer speeds of 5Gbps thanks to an integrated USB 3.0 cable and Buffalo TurboPC EX technology.
“This latest addition to the MiniStation family is ideal for globetrotters who travel with their PCs and portable HDDs and demand a robust, fast and secure high performance portable storage device,” said Paul Hudson, Buffalo’s sales director for Northern Europe.
“The MiniStation Extreme can withstand free-fall drops of up to 2.3m making it the most robust MiniStation ever.”
Available in black, silver and red, the 500GB MiniStation Extreme costs £74, while a 1TB version sets you back £134.
