MiniStation Extreme

Extremely Tough

Portable Hard Drive

 

BUFFALO’s MiniStation™ Extreme offers high performance USB3.0 portable storage in a compact and sophisticated design. The internal hard drive is encased in a highly shock-resistant body with rubberised elements to protect it from accidental bumps.

The ingenious arrangement of shock protection features meets the U.S. Military Standard MIL-STD-810G, METHOD 516.6, Procedure IV and has passed free-fall drop tests with drops up to 1.2 meters*.

Moreover, the USB cable is integrated with the case so you will not be frustrated searching for a cable anymore!

The USB 3.0 interface moves data at rates of up to 5Gbps**. This vastly reduces the time needed for data transmission, making it ideal for transferring and sharing videos, large digital photo collections, music files, and other data-intensive digital content. MiniStation Extreme is available with 500GB, 1TB or 2TB capacities. All capacities are available in black; 1TB capacity is also available in red or silver.
