5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a Buffalo Ministation, 8 Jun. 2009
I bought one of these at the same time as a pair of Buffalo 250Gb Ministation drives.

While one drive is backing up my office network overnight the other is kept off site in this case and it fits perfectly inside.

This drive is a little bigger than other "slim" drives but that actually means it fits snugly in the
Caselogic case with the elasticated strap securely holding the drive in one half of the case.

The other half of the case has a useful pocket for the extra USB power cable that comes with the Ministation.

The outer shell feels tough and durable and while it might not fit into your back pocket it is light and compact enough to slip into a backpack or handbag.

Although this is clearly a "universal" case for portable drives, it fits so well with the Buffalo Ministation I thought it might have been designed with this particular drive in mind.

I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT 250Gb PORTABLE DRIVE FOR FAST BACKUPS, 8 Jun. 2009
I bought a pair of these drives for rotating overnight backups on my office network.
They worked straight out of the box on an XP system and are very compact and light with a simple rounded design. They are also small enough to fit into a big back pocket.
They had to be reformatted for NTFS which obviously wiped the software...but since that is garbage anyway it was no big deal.
I do not require the supplied extra USB power cable for my purposes and the USB2 data cable wraps very neatly around the drive for storage.
Unlike an earlier reviewer I would strongly recommend the Case Logic case for this Buffalo drive even though it is advertised as shock proof.
It fits perfectly behind an elasticated strap inside the zip up case and gives some reassuring extra protection.
This drive is very cheap, virtually silent and very fast without getting too hot.
It cut my backup time by over 50% and handles other data transfers very quickly.
Ideal for a budget backup solution and I would highly recommend it
(even more so if it came without the rubbish bundled software!)
