Super-fast Buffalo DriveStation Velocity hard drives revealed

Hard Drives, Tech Digest news

Buffalo Technology have just revealed a new range of hard drives called the DriveStation Velocity.

As the name suggests, it’s all about speed with the Velocity models, boasting 7,200 RPM speeds and a TurboPC Ex utility for Windows PCs which boosts data transfer rates to 5Gbps over USB 3.0 connections.

In effect, you’ll be able to transfer a whopping 1,000 photos in roughly 7 seconds.

Though USB 3.0 is needed to get top speeds, the drive is USB 2.0 backwards compatible too for those yet to make the jump.

Those looking to store particularly sensitive files will also be pleased to know that the drive uses 256-bit AES Full Disk Encryption to keep files secure and out of sight of prying eyes.

Available in Piano Black, the DriveStation Velocity range is out now, reasonably priced at £89.99 for 1TB, £112 for 2TB and £164 for 3TB.
