Buffalo to offer external HDD with 1 GB cache memory

External hard drives are a convenient way in which you can take a ton of information with you anywhere. They are not large and heavy and they do not cost that much either.

As with everything else manufacturers always look for ways to improve performance found in external hard drives. Buffalo is not an exception – this maker will bring a model line known as HD-PGDU3 that will feature 1 GB of DDR3 memory as cache.

According to Buffalo, this large-capacity memory will significantly boost performance that will reach 400 MB/sec of data transfer. The device runs on a USB 3.0 interface and offers even more – it has an internal battery that can power the entire device in case power goes off unexpectedly. Thus information that is within this memory will be kept for some time before power comes back. There are LEDs on the HDD chassis and the battery installed re-charges every time you plug the drive in a regular power outlet.

There will be two models as of now – with capacities of 500 GB and 1 TB. IN Japan the drives will sell for USD 185 and USD 250 respectively.
