Meet New High-Speed External Hard Drive Buffalo HD-GDU3

Buffalo Technology, a Japanese manufacturer of all innovatory storage devices and network solutions, showcases a new external hard drive, codenamed HD-GDU3, within the boundaries of DriveStation series. The new drive is housed in a black casing, featuring 45x126x202 mm dimensions. The model is known to have three capacity variations and, correspondingly, three different models: HD-GD1.0U3 (1TB), HD-GD2.0U3 (2TB) and HD-GD3.0U3 (3TB).

These external drives employ 3.5-inch hard drives as the basis and support an advanced high-speed USB 3.0 interface. Their layout involves 1GB of DRAM cache-memory which utilizes a dedicated caching software applet Turbo PC EX2, delivered along with the drives. This applet is called to immensely accelerate the data transfer process. The nominal delivery kit also includes a large software package with encoding and backup programs.

According to Buffalo developers, their HD-GDU3 is the fastest external hard drive ever seen. Thus, the maximal …
