quick and roomy.

Rowan, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a tech dinosaur, I'll get that out there right now. I have another back up memory, but obviously, it's old, this one is faster, smaller and has way more room, and way more expensive. I plugged it in and nothing. For tech dinosaurs like myself, that's disturbing. in the box was instructions how to plug in, I plugged in. Nothing. also in the box was a piece of paper for the vine reviewers with an email address.

Compact, fast(er), but worth the price?

"switterbug" Betsey Van Horn, Amazon

  • Summary: The Buffalo MiniStation DDR has features that may be appealing for many, but you must decide if the benefits outweigh the hefty price. The MiniStation is very small, compact, and seems a bit faster (nothing to write home about) than traditional external hard drives. It also does not need an external power supply to work. Just plug it into a USB outlet and you are ready to back up your data.

Not perfect, but worth it for the multiple functions

Ellen Etc. "Garret Books", Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: I tested the Buffalo MiniStation on a Windows 7 computer, with an Intel Core i7-3770 processor and 16 GB of RAM. Overall I am quite pleased with this unit, which is small, powerful, and has been especially convenient when away from home. The Buffalo is a standard external USB hard drive that can connect either via cable wirelessly to computer or mobile device, runs from battery or line power, and is also a cell phone (or device) charger.

A Good Storage Solution For Local Access To Your Files via Wi-Fi

FirePepper Red "firepepper red", Amazon
29 July 2014
  • Summary: The Buffalo Ministation Air is a great portable hard drive storage solution for anyone looking for wireless access to their files. Essentially the hard drive connects to your wifi signal and then puts out its own WiFi network. You connect to the hard drive's network to access your files and also connect to the internet. It sounds complicated but the setup is pretty easy.

Bayou Jenny, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: This is a good little external storage device with a few perks such as wireless and a phone charger. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is in serious need of better set up directions. When you purchase this, you will have to download an app in order to use it. The process is not very intuitive, but once you get it going, it works great.

A external hard drive for people with big media libraries

Liviania, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • Summary: I started with this drive by making a backup copy of my hard drive. I have a 500 GB hard drive in my laptop, so that didn't come close to filling up the 1 TB and I could add some copies of media that I keep stored in the cloud. To transfer data from your computer to the MiniStation, you should have USB 3.0. You might be able to make it work with USB 2.0, but I wouldn't risk it. (And even with USB 3.0, it took a couple of hours to copy all of my desired files.

Great idea, not sure about the execution yet

Ted, Amazon

  • Summary: UPDATE: 7/3/2014 I received the new unit. So far it has been working without any issues. I let the WiFI run all night and here and there I would stream a movie or video clip. So far it has been working great. 3rd time IS a charm I hope. ******** Here's my experience so far... ...This device is a brand new product for Buffalo - so new that I was the very 1st to call Buffalo Tech support about this device.

Easy Setup with iMac Thunderbolt and Time Machine

Thomas N. Gilmore, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: My new iMac doesn't have lightning connections, so wanted to find a 1 TB HD for my Time Machine backup that would connect with Thunderbolt port. I didn't want to have to purchase a Thunderbolt to Lightning pigtail adapter, so this HD was one of the only ones that I found that offered Thunderbolt connectivity. I managed to see that there were a couple available through Amazon that were reconditioned and warranted.
