Buffalo unveils a 100GB flash drive

Although we've seen flash SSDs that top out at 416GB, nothing in the mainstream is really bigger than 64GB -- but Buffalo's new SHD-UHRS series seems like it's bringing the status quo up to 100GB. The USB 2.0 external drive uses two different types of flash memory to reach that capacity, yet it's only about the size of a business card and weighs just two ounces. Those of you somehow entranced by the case design but lacking the ¥107,720 ($952) for the 100GB model needn't worry, however: Buffalo is also shipping a 32GB version for a pretty competitive ¥35,400 ($312) and a 64GB model for ¥75,340 ($665).
