Middle East, 27 January 2008 – Buffalo Technology has upgraded its
DriveStation range of external hard drives with its exclusive TurboUSB
technology, to significantly boost file transfer rates. Following
positive market response to the MiniStation and DriveStation TurboUSB
ranges launched in late 2007, the DriveStation Quattro and Combo are
the latest drives to benefit from Buffalo’s speed-boosting technology.

Buffalo’s DriveStation Quattro TurboUSB is a high speed USB 2.0/eSATA
hard drive which offers storage or backup for a range of users from
consumers to students, graphic designers to IT professionals. It
features RAID 0, 1, 5 and Standard operational modes for managing its
four high performance (7200rpm) drives. Equipped with high speed eSATA,
the USB interface is now also boosted with TurboUSB to offer even
faster transfer rates. The device will be available in capacities of
1TB (HD-QSS1.0U2/R5), 2TB (HD HD-QSS2.0U2/R5) and 4TB (HD-QSS4.0U2/R5).

Gerardine Lynch, EMEA Product Marketing Manager at Buffalo Technology,
comments: “The DriveStation Quattro offers consumers and SOHO
businesses a cost-effective but reliable storage and backup facility.
The superior speed and performance of the latest drives meets current
demand for simple, fast and secure storage options.”

Kevin Vine, EMEA Director, said, “In the Middle East, like the rest of
EMEA, the market for personal data storage has grown enormously and
this need is pushing for larger and capacities and faster data transfer
rates. Buffalo’s TurboUSB feature maximizes the data transfer rates on
Direct Attach storage devices like the new DriveStation.”

The DriveStation Combo TurboUSB is equipped with a single SATA drive
and features both FireWire and USB 2.0 interfaces, ensuring high-speed
data transfer to and from digital devices. The device will be available
