Buffalo, a manufacturer of wired and wireless networking, storage and memory solutions, has launched its MiniStation PX series in India.The integrated Flex Connect USB 2.0 Cable snaps into chasis for pack-and-go portability and ensures that you never lose your cable again, said the company. What’s more, the device is powered by the same USB cable and does not require an external adapter, thus making it extremely easy to carry with you.
The MiniStation is equipped with Buffalo's BumperBody shock absorbers that surround the hard drive inside a sturdy body that also has rubberised protectors on the outside. The shock resistant protection elements surrounding the hard disk protect your data from damage.
Optionally, users can turn on the integrated hardware encryption feature to automatically encrypt the data on the drive. Full Disk Encryption (FDE) protects data from unauthorised access if lost or stolen. E-Z Logon allows users to enter their password only once, and can remember password on the computer and allows users to log on automatically. The MiniStation PX Series helps store, back up and transport digital files.
The pre-loaded Google Picasa software allows users to organise photos and Turbo USB ensures increased file transfer rates. Users can back up their data with Memeo Auto Backup for Windows and Macintosh. The MiniStation can also be used with Apple’s Time Machine.
Available in three colours – red, black and white – Buffalo's MiniStation PX Series comes with a warranty period of three years. The MiniStation HD-PX320U2 (320GB) is available for Rs 9,000 and MiniStation HD-PX500U2 (500GB) is priced at Rs 14,000.
