          Compatibility Notes Slim shape, huge storage:
          These drives hold huge amounts of data—business data, apps, movies, music, photos, and other files—all in an amazingly slim and compact case. The 500-GB
          model is only 12 mm high, the 1.0-TB model is 14.5 mm, and the 2.0-TB is just 20 mm. This is perfect for business users, individuals with large media libraries, and anyone who needs large-capacity storage but doesn't want to lug around a bigger, heavier portable drive.

          SuperSpeed 3.0 Interface:
          The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface moves data at rates of up to 5 gigabytes per second, ideal for transferring today's data-intensive content from one device to another. Spend less time waiting for files to transfer, and more time using them, and get going sooner once you're done.

          Great tools to boost performance:
          These drives also feature the Buffalo Tools suite of utilities for enhanced speed, security, and convenience. The TurboPC EX performance and copy enhancement provides speedier copying (up to four times faster), while the TurboPC EX2 utility features three modes: Performance mode for fast transfers, Save mode using data compression to fit more files the disk (up to 120% greater capacity), and a new Balance mode that automatically selects Performance or Save based on the file type. The package also includes energy-conserving Eco Manager, 256-bit AES encryption to protect your data from unauthorized access, Buffalo’s Backup Utility to automatically back up your files, and the DiskFormatter 2 formatting utility.

          Attractive Design:
          Performance does not have to be boring. Besides providing the storage, speed, and tools that power users require, theses drives look great, too. Perfect for users who prefer style to just a boring block.
