      Recommended and Value for money!!

      1) This is a Japanese product and not bad as the Chinese stuff you get.
      2) Price is way lesser than Western Digital and Seagate and better looking too.
      3) Small, compact and very light and the material used is of good quality.
      4) I noticed that it doesn't vibrate a lot comparing to other hard disks during data transfer nor does it make any noise.
      5) Green light when you connect to USB 2 and blue light for USB 3
      6) Option to encrypt your data
      7) 3 year warranty, so retain your bill and box i...

      Sleek, stylish and fast!

      A very good product with all the desirable ingredients in right proportion: sleek 1 TB stylish drive with USB 3.0 interface!

      Flipkart pricing is on the higher side for this product, so, didn't buy it from flipkart. Also, the mentioned dimensions and weight are for the 500GB model, for 1 TB it's 76 x 114 x 17 mm and 210 g. USB 3.0 cable is sturdy and approximately 0.5 meter in length.

      Bad experience after 7 months.

      ****Editing my old review****

      Just before a week, this little beauty(not anymore!) stopped working. Yea i have dropped it, but that was not even 5 cms down the ground. After that it started acting weird. I can see this HDD in devices and printers window(windows 7). and my pc even detects this as a usb drive. but this drive never showed up in windows explorer. It has stopped its beat(the disk inside never rotates!!). i have got my life inside (pics, hard-collected movies, etc etc). The recove...

      Not a good product. You will regret after 4 or 5 months.!!!

      I've ordered almost 20 products from flipkart in the last one year and every time service seems to get better.
      I never reviewed any product before but this one requires a review. This Buffallo HD i bought in October 2012 and I'm writing this with complete disappointment after 7 months. This hard disk looks so good, very slim, light weight and has somewhat stylish look. Data transfer rate is also pretty good. But that's it;. We use hard disk to save our important data I also did the same an...

      The lightest so far

      I have purchased 3 of them. Apparently it is Japanese (not Chinese) and in the beginning. It was priced over 6K and now i think it is the cheapest usb 3.0, lightest. Honestly i thot i was cheated with 500 gb drive because of its weight, but i have loaded 3 hard drives completely and have been using it for 2-3 months now. Seems like a brilliant product. The weight still baffles me. How can it be less than 175 gms for 1 TB. Welcome technology !!!

      A Must-have product

      The best thing about Buffalo MiniStation 1TB is its compact size and light weight(165grams). Its comparatively small and easily fits into your pocket. The design is sleek and appealing.
      Obviously, the small size does not compromise the transfer speed. It took only 42seconds (approx) to move 1GB of data and average transfer speed was around 25-30 MBPS on usb 2.0
      The multi coloured led's which glows green if the port in use is usb 2.0 & glows blue if the port is usb 3.0 compatible is worth ment...

      Lost data! Wasted money!

      Unusable in just 8 months of very sparing use (< 50 hours!!). It started making strange noises and clicks a week back and is is almost dead now. I am right now struggling to somehow salvage the data. This comes with a 3 year warranty - need to check if that could be of any use.
      Its hard to tell if this is a defective piece or not handled with adequate care during transit for delivery!

      Superb HDD, But I have complaints about the service

      Guys, its a very good product no doubt it and as many others have given detailed review , i dont want to come up with another one

      but this time I am really unhappy with the product delivery because of the First flight courier people, as i was made to wait at the courier office for 3 hrs as they wrongly delivered my product (for which i had already paid by net banking) to some one else who had bought something else from some other sites as 'COD'... Thank fully the other guy returned the produ...

      Sasta.. Sundar.. Tikaau..

      Ordered my 1TB Buffalo ministation 3.0 some 2 months back from flipkart (amazing service as usual) and have been extensively using it since then. Like i mentioned in the review title.. this is the best External HDD in its class.. totally worth a buy.. only thing that slightly bothers me is that the USB cord can be made a bit longer.. Baaki Sab First Class hai.. :)
