This Latest media storage from Buffalo is pretty excellent. It’s called Buffalo MiniStation DataVault and yes it’s really a data vault. Inside the hard drive, Buffalo has pre-installed their special software so you can do a full disk encryption automatically to assure no one can browse for your sensitive data. The Case design of Buffalo MiniStation DataVault also has been ruggedized with added shock-resistant design, but no clue what is the maximum height for the shock-proof case.
Buffalo MiniStation Datavault will have the maximum size of 500GB with its 2.5-inch laptop hard drive hid behind the cover. It will be available first in Japan in the middle of this month and the hard drive will start penetrate to the other countries carrying the price tag of $244.
