Buffalo DriveStation Combo 4 (1TB) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
2 September 2008
  • Summary: Although it sports an MSRP of $579, the Buffalo DriveStation Combo 4 is available for as little as $230 through online retailers. For the price, you get a one-year warranty (which is a bit skimpy compared to the Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus' impressive five-year coverage), excellent transfer speeds (particularly with eSATA), and a nice selection of ports for those who use more than USB connections.

  • Excerpt: Buffalo’s 500GB DriveStation Combo 4 external drive is the fastest USB drive we’ve ever tested, and it even holds its own on an eSATA connection. That’s thanks to a propriety technology called TurboUSB that squeaks additional speeds out of the device. On Windows XP, a DriveStation connected with TurboUSB improved its synthetic read and write speeds by 20 percent (even though its burst speeds confused our benchmark) over a typical USB connection.
  • Pros: USB, Firewire 400, Firewire 800, and eSATA connections; TurboUSB is speedy.
  • Cons: Not the fastest drive on Vista; security utility comes with a few bugs.

  • Conclusion: Le disque dur externe arbore un design très réussi. Il chauffe peu, au détriment d'un peu de bruit lors du fonctionnement. On apprécie les nombreuses connectiques disponibles : e-SATA, USB et double FireWire. Les performances sont très bonnes puisque le disque dur se place dans le peloton de tête.
  • Pros: Le design, Les performances, Les utilitaires, Les nombreuses connectiques
  • Cons: Peut être son bruit de fonctionnement, s'il fallait trouver quelque chose
