News Buffalo Technology DriveStation Axis 1TB Review 2022

The Buffalo Technology DriveStation Axis 1TB is a family of desktop external hard drives that offer high performance and easy-to-use storage. It easily connects to your computer for additional storage or backup of data files, videos, music and photos. Buffalo has a feature-rich software suite designed to improve PC performance.

The Buffalo Hard Drive not only stores and backs up your data with ease, it also transports a variety of files, including large multimedia files that are too large to fit into a USB key. Just plug the hard drive into your computer and it will install automatically with your Windows 2000, XP, or OS-X computer. The Fanless Cooling Chassis Design allows the DriveStation to run cool and quiet.

Storage devices can be placed vertically or horizontally on the desktop. There’s no cooling fan, although there’s definitely room for one, so you should store the disc in a well-ventilated area.

When connected via USB3, the Buffalo DriveStation ran through our file transfer tests, writing large files at 105MB/s and reading them at just under 152MB/s, which makes this one of the fastest external drives we’ve seen. It’s not quite as table-topping when it comes to small files, but it’s still faster than average with a small file write speed of 31MB/s and a read speed of 42.2MB/s.
