Every dad wants to bring his favorite movies, series, music or photos with him, or at least be able to save and access pictures of his kids and holidays remotely. For these connected dads, Buffalo Technology offers several drives and accessories, designed to withstand a life on the road.
For dads who love photography and who want to remotely backup their latest shots, or do not want to walk around with an external hard drive, Buffalo also has a range of easy-to-use plug-and-play NAS devices that are accessible from anywhere over the internet. Not only do these NAS drives automatically backup your Mac or PC, but they even become your personal ‘cloud’. It’s pretty smart saving your files to a NAS on your desk to make sure you can’t lose any images, and you can always access your photos when you’re visiting relatives to show them your latest adventures or family photos.
