Product Description

Product Description

Thanks to an extra-large 1 Gb cache, Buffalo's new dynamic random-access memory external hard drive is capable of extremely fast data-transfer speeds. With the DRAM cache function enabled, the hard drive efficiently buffers files during jobs enabling write speeds up to 400 Mb/sec. As an example, copying 1000 photos, with a total file size of 800Mb, will take you about 3.5 seconds. Read speed is also impressive via the DRAM cache, enabling speeds of up to 300 Mb/sec, which equates to the same 800Mb, 1000 image file being transferred in as little as 6 seconds.

Best of all, Buffalo are able to bring you this impressive technology in an affordable package, while still maintaining the quality you’ve come to know and expect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charge of the bufffalos 11 Feb 2014
Size Name:Capacity- 3TB|Verified Purchase
It appears easy to set up (just plug in the USB3 cable and you are off. the accompanying software is badly presented and tiresome to make good use of. That aspect needs rethinking and needs to be better presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very VERY fast 17 May 2014
Size Name:Capacity- 2TB|Verified Purchase
Ok firstly, this is not a small backup drive that you can carry anywhere, but a larger one that needs an external power source so it's fine if you want a backup drive for home or office that none for carrying around. Ok, the good parts, never before have I ever seen such speed from an external backup drive, but only when it was connected to a usb 3 connection. With USB 2, it functioned at regular speed like my old backup drive. I must admit after testing with large zipped files like 100 gB for 1 file, and then a few directories with 500gb of little files, I was VERY impressed with this this drive at everything I threw at it and if connected to usb3 instead of usb2 it is just as fast as copying from 1 internal hard disk to another internal drive.In fact it came very close to write speeds of internal SSD drive speeds but with all the benefits of 2TB space. I can't comment on longevity though, but as a large backup drive this is the fastest it gets BY FAR and I have tested quite a few. Only thing is the backup software does now work with servers or SBS2011 which is a little silly, but SBS2011 at least recognises the drive with a standard driver and still works optimally with usb 3.0. I just had to buy my own backup software specially made for windows servers but that ok. Regular windows 7/8 users will not need extra backup software as this drive contains it. Well done, this drive sets the new standard for speed for large storage drives. Don't even think about buying a cheaper 2tb backup drive to save another twenty or so quid. Just buy this if you have usb 3.0. If you don't have usb 3, buy a usb 3 card for a tenner and buy this too.

It is early days but setting up was straight forward. Uploading folders to it seemed a little slower than I expected

Feel like ANGRY HOMER !!! Was so look forward to use this new product, as it have a very good rating review at UK & US.

Exciting open the box (like a kid) and I find out the product inside is a different product ?WTF???

On the Box S/N N80092434900786 is a Buffalo HD-GD3 model, but inside the box was a product HD-LB4 S/N 80004134300001 !!

Strongly recommencement and DO advice amazon when they re-sell a product, PLEASE CHECK What is inside the box !!!!!!
