Extreme PC Week

Buffalo Technology launched the world's first portable Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 dual-interface drive this week at Computex.

Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt/USB Portable Hard Drive

The bus-powered MiniStation Thunderbolt/USB Portable Hard Drive comes in both 500GB and 1TB versions and features the lightening-quick connection ports of both USB 3.0 - said to handle speeds of up to 5Gbps - as well as the 10Gbps-rated Thunderbolt socket.

The Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt/USB Portable Hard Drive, which comes in an aluminium body with a frosted top, will be available in the UK this summer. Prices have yet to be revealed. ®
