Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

DriveStation Velocity is the perfect solution for those who need to transfer files quickly and easily. The amazing speed performance comes from a combination of a more efficient improved USB 3.0 interface, Buffalo's enhanced TurboPC EX data transfer and copy utility and a 7200 rpm drive. With USB 3.0, digital content transfers at speeds of up to 5 Gbps. If you haven't moved up to USB 3.0 yet, DriveStation Velocity is backward compatible with USB 2.0. The unit is also optimal for users who want to restrict access to their personal drive when on a shared computer or network. Powerful yet easy-to-use security options include automatic hardware encryption that protects your data, with no loss of performance.

I run Mac OS X Lion, and am using this drive for Time Machine backups.
Reliable 2TB disk drive, no errors at all so far, fingers crossed. Also it is very slim, doesn't take up much space. It is also very quiet, only occasionally you hear it click on and off.

The box says it's made in Japan. Which is always reassuring.

I have bought two of these drives in August 2011; couldn't resist when the price was only £64! One of them has been on 24/7 ever since and the other one is for backup. As usual, I have formatted them and started using them without any problems. I now have 8 Buffalo drives, ranging from 250GB to 2.00TB and they are all still 'alive'. I think the oldest one is about 6 years old.

The only negative thing about these particular drives is that now and then they can get a bit noisy; in fact, they are the noisiest of the whole lot - not sure why, maybe the design? The noise comes and goes and it is not a problem, more a curiosity, as the older drives are so quiet.

I know some people have had problems with their Buffalo drives; either I have been lucky with my 8 or it may indicate that the brand is actually pretty reliable on the whole. I had considered other makes every time I needed a new drive but in the end I had bought another Buffalo because it is what I know.

I looked through reviews on Amazon and elsewhere of a lot of external hard drives and there was a very similar range for all of them: 80-90% four or five stars and fully satisfied, 10-20% one star with horror stories. Just a few had 30% bad reviews and I excluded them. But even those with the very best comments and largest percentage of excellent reviews still got some stinkers and strident complaints. Nothing was a clear winner. Obviously all external hard drives carry some risk of failure. Particular brands (even word-leaders) are no guarantee. It's just luck.

Apart from the basic percentage of stright-out product failure, the worst reviews seemed to come from those people who had the most specific requirements, often known in advance to be going to necessitate some modification of the product as supplied; or with a complaint involving the need to do so to achieve a personal objective. I wanted a bog-standard external hard drive for backing up a large quantity of data on my PC, having lost valuable records in the past through irremediable PC hard disc failure. Once things have been copied I don't expect to use the external hard drive very much, or very often. My PC is quite new, but is UBS 2.0, so I didn't want the complications (or cost) of any USB 3.0 facility. I accept that there will be speed limitations with UBS 2.0. I did need a large size - two 1TB drives, or one 2TB or larger drive was required. Obviously the cost and convenience of a 2TB drive made it preferable to two 1TB drives, and the reviews did not suggest any satisfaction differences across sizes (although performance might not be as fast).

I chose the Buffalo drive because of its size, spec and cost. It was, as far as I could see, one of the best value in terms of bytes per pound.

After 6 weeks of VERY MINIMAL use, and the drive not actually being moved AT ALL, it has suddenly stopped working/powering up, leaving me with another trip to the PC store to see what can be retrieved as the Buffalo warranty process is of no help at all, leaving me at risk of losing the HD completely (physically) and Amazon want nothing to do with me because 30days have passed.

Got this drive for it's storage size but (as per other users) had to reformat it into NTFS before being able to use it. This also meant losing any files/info/programs that came with it but didn't really care too much about that as just wanted the big storage capability anyway . Does seem a hassle to have to do that though. Having said all that, if you can be bothered to do a very simple format job (through the drive utility on the pc) and can wait for the 8-10 hours that this will take THEN it's whisper quiet, looks good and is a massive amount of storage for the price.

Used it a few times. After 2 months, did not power up. Checked the power supply on another device which was fine so definitely the drive. Very poor.
