The Japanese storage maker Buffalo Technologies has announced the market appearance of the DriveStation HD-GDU3 external hard drive family – a new product that offers never before seen data transfer speeds.

The HD-GDU3 family is represented by three models – the 1 TB HD-GD1.0U3, 2 TB HD-GD2.0U3 and 3 TB HD-GD3.0U3 external hard drives. All of them come in black chassis that measure 45 x 126 x 202 mm and weigh 1 kg. Other hardware specs include support for USB 3.0 and 1 GB of cache memory.

Thanks to Buffalo’s Turbo PC EX2 software program the HD-GDU3 family of external hard drives transfer data at up to 408 MB/sec which is about 2.3 times faster than other external hard drives that feature USB 3.0 support. Thus moving HD movies to these hard drives takes just seconds.
