PORTABLE & SUPER FAST!

Summary: Since I'm not into technology that much and I didn't see any instructions included, I ended up calling the manufacturer for the instructions and basically I was told to just drag my files and drop them into the drive; so that was easy enough even for someone like me. I have to say that I was amazed at the speed of transfer! I also like the fact that it's pretty small and light weight, making it especially ideal if you travel and you want to take it with you.
Compact (3 1/4" x 5 1/4" x 3/4" - 7.8 oz.) with MegaCache accelerator which increases file transfer speeds up to 400 MB/s

Summary: The Buffalo MiniStation is very easy to use, just plug it into your laptop. Be aware that the MiniStation is backwards compatible with USB 2 ports, but not USB 1. What sets it apart from other portable hard drives is its DDR3 Mega Cache Accelerator which increases file transfer rate up to 400 MB/s. I haven't been backing up my laptop & had a scare last week, when it wouldn't boot up. Nothing happened..

Summary: I really like this Portable Hard Drive. Not only is it easy to use but it's really fast too. I've learned my lesson, more than once, in the past by not having my computers backed up. I've lost absolutely everything. I refuse to allow this to happen again and since this device is so convenient, I have no excuse to lose everything again. You simply plug it in and transfer what you need. Easy as that.
Summary: This is an external hard drive with a unique feature: a built in 1 GB DRAM cache (a great idea!). What it does is very simple: it boosts the data transfer speed because, basically, when you transfer files into it, AT FIRST you are using that capacity (which is quite fast - similar to what would happen if you were transferring files into a flash drive). So YES, data transfer speed is quite high.

Summary: I was surprised by how small this hard drive was. Size-wise it reminds me of a larger smart phone, although a little bit thicker. The size definitely makes it portable. Also, it does now have a wall cord for power. The only power it needs is pulled from the computer. The "Quick Setup Guide" that came with it made me laugh. It shows a picture of a laptop and a picture of the hard drive with a USB cable connecting the two.
Summary: I really like the compact size of this hard drive. It was absolutely simple to install. Just plug it in and it's ready to go. I copied over a file full of 112 very large photos and it copied over in seconds. You get a lot of room in a small package. It measures just a tad over 3 inches by 5 inches. I have two other external hard drives that are nowhere near this small in size.
Access Your Data WIthout Wires Over WIFI With MiniStation!

Summary: I was very impressed with the performance of the Buffalo Ministation Air HDW-PDU3. The device acts as an all-in-one file transfer device with multiple ways of accessing data. The integrated battery not only powers the hard drive inside but also powers a WIFI router. The following benchmarks were run to test the performance of the Buffalo MiniStation Air.
Summary: I am pleased that I took a chance on the Buffalo MiniStation Air. When I initially read the product description, I wasn't sure if I needed all of the capabilities of such a device. I originally wanted an external hard drive to back up my music, videos, and photos. When I saw this MiniStation Air, I was intrigued, though, and decided to try it. The quick-start guide is detailed and easy to understand. I was able to back up the media I wanted from my desktop.
Summary: This has been wonderful for me since I was needing another storage device. You get 1TB with so you can store thousands of things from music to movies or whatever you need on here. Also it work wirelessly so you can stream your stuff from this device on multiple devices as well. Also a cool little thing that this can do is charge your phone and so far everything has worked for me.
