Ultra Fast DDR3 Technology

Portable Hard Drive

 

With Buffalo’s Dynamic Random-Access Memory portable hard drive users no longer have to choose between speed and capacity; the HD-PGDU3 series offers both! Buffalo’s DDR3 hard drives combine the best of solid state drives – fast speed – with the best of standard hard drives – affordable large capacities.

The HD-PGDU3 series is available in 1TB capacity.

1TB  HD-PGD1.0U3-EU

DDR3 Technology

The HD-PGDU3 is equipped with Buffalo’s DDR3 Technology and has an extra-large 1GB cache capable of extremely fast data transfer speeds.

Ready to copy 1,000 photos? You’ll be done in about 3.5 seconds – about 2.3 times faster than a standard USB 3.0 hard drive!
