    Comments about Buffalo 2TB DriveStation Axis Velocity USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive:

    I bought 3 of these for downloading P2 cards to while on the road. They've been great! I'm editing on one right now with Media Composer 6. My project is on the Buffalo Tech drive and I even consolidated my media to the same drive which I realize is not a best practice. Don't try to edit with this going down the highway. The bumping will cause the drive to "dismount". I tried that out of desperation to turn something a little quicker. The drive was fine, but I didn't push it once I realized what was happening. Persisting would surely have caused the drive to fail.

    Sorry to hear about the other guy's luck. It's a good thing his data wasn't worth more than the drive. Given what I do I could care less about the drive or it's monetary value. The data on it is what's valuable and I'm really happy with this drive after using it hard for a year and a half.

    Take care of your gear and your gear will take care of you.

    Comments about Buffalo 2TB DriveStation Axis Velocity USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive:

    I bought this drive in Sept. I only use it for backup so there's not a lot of activity on it. Started to make strange noises today, just 1 month after purchase. Buffalo warranty wants me to pay to ship it back to them for RMA. Will not buy a Buffalo product again.
