Buffalo DriveStation 2Share launches

Buffalo Technology has unveiled the DriveStation 2Share which offers consumers the choice of two storage options.

It can be used as an external hard drive to back up a single PC, or networked to allow access to shared files from several computers in the network.

The unit can be operated as a USB-attached storage device for one computer, or switched to NAS mode to allow multiple users to share files within a network.

Buffalo promises easy set up and use with both options, there's a power saving utility and Buffalo's TurbuUSB and Secure Lock software bundled.

The DriveStation 2Share is available now priced at around £87 for 500GB, £94 for the 640GB version and £129.99 for the 1TB whopper.
