With the expected widespread adoption of Thunderbolt by Windows PC manufacturers joining the existing and sizable Apple Thunderbolt market, the MiniStation Thunderbolt / USB Portable Hard Drive is ideal for PC and Mac users looking for a fast interface speeds while preserving backward compatibility with existing devices that support USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. “Creating, storing, and moving digital content on the go has always been a challenging proposal for all types of users as either the interface was incompatible or too slow or the storage solution was physically too large,” said Brian Verenkoff, director of marketing at Buffalo Technology. “Collaborating with Intel to deliver the world’s first dual-interface Thunderbolt and USB storage solution as well as the world’s first portable Thunderbolt hard drive reaffirms Buffalo’s pioneering spirit and engineering excellence.” Housed in a sleek aluminum body with a transparent frosted top, the MiniStation Thunderbolt features an indirect disk access LED indicator on the underside that tastefully illuminates its supporting surface. Bus-powered, the HDD requires no additional power supply, and it can be formatted to support both PCs and Macs, making it a great portable storage solution for any device. Compatibility with Mac OS X Time Machine also makes the MiniStation Thunderbolt / USB Portable Hard Drive an ideal solution for backup with Mac computers. The MiniStation Thunderbolt / USB Portable Hard Drive is the first to couple the ubiquitous 5 Gbps super speed USB 3.0 port for legacy support with the 10 Gbps Thunderbolt technology developed by Intel. The Thunderbolt MiniStation is available in 500GB and 1TB priced at P8,900 and P10,000, respectively. ]]>
