Hard drives. We all know what they are, they’re necessary, but wow they’re quite dull a lot of the time, aren’t they?
Well Buffalo has recently launched a new hard drive called the MiniStation Extreme, which puts all of the others to shame as it’s officially up to US Military Standard due to its super robust exterior. The outside casing of the product is shock resistant and made of rubberised elements, which means it’s passed a free-fall drop test from 2.3 metres. It’s great that the product is so strong, but we can’t think why it’s really necessary other than if you’re VERY clumsy or you’re some kind of spy with an active lifestyle and a hard drive full of secrets.
The MiniStation Extreme isn’t just tough, it’s also really fast and allows you to transfer 5Gbps from its built-in USB cable, which also means it’s ideal for those who travel a lot and haven’t got much space to spare.
The MiniStation Extreme is available in 500GB and 1TB sizes from Amazon (and plenty of other online retailers) for £69.80 in black, silver and red, but opt for classic black if you’re a spy. It’s much more inconspicuous.
