Buffalo DriveStation Combo 4 (1TB)

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.
  • Pros: Fast read and write speeds, eSATA FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 ports, File-encryption software, Windows and Mac compatible,
  • Cons: TurboUSB didnt improve write speeds,

  • Summary: The latter program’s lock and unlock shortcuts for the encryption mechanism are mislabeled, but we were more bothered that it accepted our password via USB but rejected it over eSATA. Minus these quirks, the DriveStation is a fine external storage product. It’s not blazing a speed trail on its eSATA connection, but it stuffs the USB pipe.
  • 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
