Excellent hardware marred by sub-standard drive speeds/upgrade difficulty

  • Summary: This BUFFALO Technology MiniStation is a shame. A really great shame. Why? Because it's theoretically a great product. The build quality is great, the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt cables included are a great touch (especially given how expensive Thunderbolt cables currently are). So what's the problem, then? So in my testing via Thunderbolt on a 2011 MacBook Air, the slow-spinning Samsung 5400rpm disk inside the enclosure is a huge bottleneck (I didn't even hit 100MB/s).

Premium performance, build quality, and aesthetics

  • Summary: The Buffalo MiniStation 500 GB Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 drive is one of only a few Thunderbolt drives out on the market right now. Thunderbolt drives can theoretically reach twice the speeds of USB 3.0, but you'll have to pay a premium for those theoretical speeds. I took a look at the Buffalo Thunderbolt drive to see if the portable hard drive was worth the premium.

  • Summary: Also Maximal schnell isses nicht /THUNDERBOLT. aber immerhin 100MByte/sec. Damit am Mac 4x besser als USB 2.0 da dort die meisten USB 3.0 express cards nicht funktionieren.
