Was anybody else surprised to see that Buffalo (fine purveyors of USB hardware, including kitschy dice speakers
, and teeny, tiny thumb drives
) was able to start pushing USB 3.0 hardware
out the door so quickly? The fine citizens of TweakTown
definitely were -- and now they've gone and given HD-HXU3 external hard drive a thorough going over. The verdict? They've likened performance to that of an internal drive -- not disappointing in the least. Physically, this guy is constructed "very well, much better than any of the enclosures that are sold without a drive" that the reviewer has tested. The only sticking point? The price seems a little steep -- and since USB 3.0 will soon be ubiquitous anyways, perhaps you want to hold out a minute before investing. But if the latest and greatest is your bag, this ain't a bad place to start. Hit the source link for the full story.
