Buffalo Technology on Monday introduced its DriveStation Duo, an external hard disk drive with USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 interfaces available in capacities from 500GB to 1.5 terabytes (TB). Prices start at $249.
The DriveStation Duo ships configured as a RAID Level 1 (mirrored) system. Inside the chassis are two 7200RPM Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive mechanisms. The drives utilize Buffalo’s SecureLockWare technology, which it says encrypts and protects data in the event the drive is stolen or lost. The drive also features auto on/off, which will automatically power the product on or off when the computer is powered on or off.
Buffalo sells the DriveStation Duo in 500GB, 800GB, 1.0TB and 1.5TB configurations for $249.99, $449.99, $499.99 and $999.99 respectively.
