Buffalo USB 3.0 Hard Disk Drive

Buffalo HD-HU3 USB 3.0 hard disk drive

You may have heard about gadgets and devices with USB 3.0, but none of them are actually out on the market, except for one.  Buffalo boasts that their HD-HU3 series of USB 3.0 hard disk drives are available for retail beginning late October.  And because USB 3.0 devices do not work without a supporting controller, your purchase of a Buffalo HD-HU3-if you live in Japan, that is-comes with a IFC-PCIE2U3 two-port PCI Expressx1 host controller from NEC.  The 1TB version is expected to cost at 20,000 yen (or about US$225), while the 1.5TB model will cost 25,300 yen ($284), and the 2TB unit will become available later in the year for 46,600 yes (about $523).
