The MiniStationTM Extreme offers a high performance storage solution with a compact design

London, UK - 29th April 2015: Buffalo Technology, the global manufacturer of storage and networking solutions, today launched the MiniStationTM Extreme, a shock-proof portable storage device, ideal for busy professionals on the go.

Durable and high-performing

The MiniStationTM Extreme, which has won a Red Dot Design award, is well suited to travellers and business professionals on the move. It features U.S military standard shock protection, withstanding drop tests of up to 2.3 metres. The chassis is shock absorbent and also features rubberised elements to protect the hard drive from damage. The MiniStationTM Extreme features 256-bit AES Full Disk Encryption (FDE), which protects your data from unauthorised access, which is essential for consumers looking to store both personal and corporate data.

This new MiniStationTM Extreme is both water and dust resistant, which provides peace of mind to busy consumers. This sleek durable device is ideal for commuting professionals who need to store a variety of data quickly and easily.

The high performing MiniStationTM Extreme has data transfer rates of 5Gbps* via its USB 3.0 port. This reduces the time needed for data transmission, making it ideal for transferring and sharing videos, large digital photo collections and music files.

Innovative design

The new addition to Buffalo’s portable storage portfolio is available with 1 TB or 2 TB capacities. Both capacities are available in black; 1TB capacity is also available in red and silver. Its compact design includes easy cable management for pack-and-go portability, which eliminates the frustrating search for cables.

Hiroshi Nagao, Managing Director of Buffalo EU B.V., said, “The MiniStationTM Extreme offers consumers a compact, yet beautifully designed storage solution. In a fast paced society where travel is prevalent, we have created a device that is prepared for the inevitable bumps and scrapes that occur in modern life”.
