      Comments about Buffalo 1 TB DriveStation Axis Velocity USB 3.0 External Hard Drive:

      I need to buy to back up my computer data and buy external hard disk. I like this is very light but solid and easy to install.Nothing to complaint about product. Service is excellent as it arrives on time.
      Only thing I did not like somehow the box was torn to open but not opened obviously. I took a picture just in case but inside the box product was well sealed and no suspect of opening.
