Buffalo MiniStation External HDD Reviews
Tough design and decent storag
I think this is one of the better hard drives at this price point. So far my experience has been great with it. It works very well for my use case of archiving pictures.
Worked great on arrival- too early to tell if it will last. I wanted to buy an off brand because they seem to be the most reliable. My old mac pro with lion read it right off the bat. I reformatted for mac os journal via my old mac (lion osx) for time machine and it reads on both Catalina (new mac pro 2019) and Lion.
Quick & Quiet
Works great. Fast with no noise. Just the right size for what I needed.
I recommend B&H
Buffalo MiniStation 1TB is a quality product.� B&H's price was great and the free shipping was fast.� I recommend B&H.� Thanks!
Meets my needs .. for now.
Bought this external drive for backup purposes (Time Machine, MAC). Previous backup drive too small. So, 1 TB capacity of this Buffalo drive more than adequate. Works fine. Except that this drive does not offer USB-C capability, I would have rated 5 stars. Would be nice to have conventional USB 3.0/Thunderbolt and USB-C port options.
Time Machine compatable & fast
Love this product, I have 3. Gave the 1T to husband. I use the 2- 2T with my Mac Laptop Pro. I've had two of the 3 products over two years. No problems at all and fast.
Works great! Simple set-up. Turn -off the Mac, connect the Buffalo MiniStaion, then restart the Mac. The Mac will recognize the drive, then click on your choices.
Perfect fit for MacBook Air
I purchased 2 drives, one to use with Time Machine as a backup for my computer and the other to store photographs. Both drives worked perfectly and intuitively right out of the box. I connected both drives with the thunderbolt connecter. At this point, the drives are definitely 5 star. The drives are well made, sleek, and small. Great for storing away, travel, and take up minimal room on a writing desk.
