Buffalo Japan has announced new sereis of External HDD called LS-XL. This LS-XL series external HDD is actually a NAS (network attached storage) at the same time, where it has come with three connectivity that has included USB, Firewire and one Gigabit Ethernet port.
Anyway, I like the design of this LS-XL series LAN HDD. It has some type of mesh design with the logo, glossy sideways with piano black color treatment, and a shining blue LED color showing the HDD activity at the side.
However, it looks pretty “chubby” from the side. I doubt you can even bring it on your laptop bag because of the dimension. But it’s not something for carry around anyway. It will sit tight on your desk and you should buy this hard drive only if you are trying to get a simple NAS system.
The Buffalo LS-XL Series LAN external hard drive is going to be available in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB models. The cost of Buffalo LS-XL Series is going to be 17,000 Yen ($211), 22,000 Yen ($273), and 28,000 Yen ($348), respectively for each capacity. Expect to see this device to appear in the market in July 2011.
