MiniStation Safe

Shockproof and Secure

Portable Hard Drive

 

Buffalo’s MiniStation™ Safe (HD-PNFU3 series) is a slim, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, portable hard drive that comes in a patented shock-proof chassis and features Buffalo’s new Lock-and-Go feature – thereby protecting your data in two important ways!

The HD-PNFU3 MiniStation™ Safe brings you the Buffalo quality you know and trust in a small, attractive, and secure package. MiniStation™ Safe is available with 1TB, or 2TB capacities. All capacities are available in black; 1TB capacity is also available in red.

Lock-and-Go

Buffalo™ gave the HD-PNFU3 a sleek design with an attractive matte finish and Buffalo’s patented shock-proof chassis.

The second protection comes from Buffalo’s new Lock-and-Go feature allowing both PC and Mac users to quickly and easily password-protect their data. The MiniStation™ Safe will stay locked until the correct password is re-entered – no matter where you take it!

Want more protection?

With Buffalo Tools’ SecureLockMobile PC users can software encrypt their device and have the option to keep both encrypted and unencrypted data on the same drive. Files are password protected once moved into an encrypted container and users can choose between 128 or 256 bit encryption (default value is 256 bit).

The difference: 128 bit encryption could theoretically be cracked in a billion years; and 256 bit would take even longer – using a super computer! This type of encryption has never been broken and governments and businesses place a great deal of faith that it never will be.

A small, attractive, and secure package

Buffalo’s MiniStation™ Safe occupies minimal space and offers USB 3.0 bus-powered mobile storage for your data and for your on-the-go lifestyle. It works with PC and Mac, so you can access your files from whichever computer you are on, even while on the go.
