London, UK, 3 September 2008 – Buffalo Technology has announced the availability of its first portable silicon disk with SSD technology in the UK. The USB attached MicroStation (SHD-UHRXXGS) is capable of storing up to 100GB of data and offers the latest in storage technology within a compact (57 x 14 x 89mm) and lightweight (56–60g) chassis.
