Performance

Although I don't have USB 3.0 on my computers, this new Buffalo hard drive performs very fast and the software provided is fairly nice, including the ability to speed up transfers, which is nice given how big the capacity is. The only problem is the software does like to start up with the computer, but this can be easily turned off. I wish it had the ability to hook up via eSATA or "Thunderbolt", but that would probably make it a lot more expensive. Even if you have USB 2.0, this drive still performs very fast and has the capability to perform faster. One final note is, make sure the cable is plugged in securely, if it's not sometimes the light turns of very faint, and I thought my hard drive died at first.
