Customer Reviews

Take heed!! Look for alternatives; Thunderbolt stopped working, and lousy tech support from Buffalo. My experience mirrors that of several other reviewers. The unit initially worked fine and was nice and fast. Within a few weeks the drive suddenly disappeared from my finder window and refuse to come back despite multiple attempts and approaches on any of my computers. In short the Thunderbolt connection died. The unit still works in USB mode, but I can buy larger USB drives for a fraction of the money.A request to email support from Buffalo resulted in a reasonably prompt reply requesting payment in order to RMA the device. Subsequent emails went unanswered. I tried the the support line, and despite being told that my call was "very important" waited on hold nearly 45 minutes before giving up. Now I have to securely delete all the data - transfer it all to another computer the slow way and return the unit via Amazon. Glad I bought it through them and can take advantage of their return policies!This is an area where Apple should have done a better job enabling industry support for Thunderbolt. The concept is great, but without a decent ecosystem it will retain an unreasonable premium. 1The good: The drive is very durable and lightweight The good: The drive is very durable and lightweight. It has withstood airplane rides and getting banged around in a backpack and suitcase. It has a very sturdy metal frame around the drive. The Thunderbolt cable is just the right size for use with a MacBook Air. For the price tag, this is an excellent deal, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.The bad: Although this is a very good drive and is faster using Thunderbolt than USB 3.0 (as it should be), performance is neutered by the fact that the hard drive is 5,400rpm, as opposed to a faster 7,200rpm drive. I realize that this would make it much more expensive, but would be nice in order to get more of the performance benefits provided by Thunderbolt. Lastly, and this is a very minor one, the texture of the top of the drive makes this thing very susceptible to dust collection. I am by no means a neat freak, but do like to keep my computing equipment clean and dust-free.The bad points above should by no means discourage any potential buyers, but are just my reasoning for not rating this with 5 stars. I would certainly buy this again, and am actually considering getting a second one. 4Killed 2 Birds with one Stone! First of all, I'd like to thank BUFFALO for making and astonishing enclosure and interface combo. I only bought this item to use its enclosure with an SSD, and take advantage of the maximum Thunderbolt and USB3 speed on both OXS and Windows. I used its internal drive to upgrade my PS3. The enclosure was though to open, but it can be done with care. I would not advise it as it voids BUFFALO's limited warranty. So if you don't mind taking the risk, voiding the warranty before it expires, adding a Samsung Evo 840 SSD, or a SSD of your choice, and taking advantage of interface speeds, by all means buy this item and it'll pay off. My PS3 has an upgrade and I can take advantage of the maximum speeds of TB and USB3.I also must stress that I do not advise anyone to void the manufacturers warranty before it expires. This was a personal choice with some technical knowledge and plans. Maximum interface speeds of TB and USB3 vary and can only bee seen with an SSD, so don't set unrealistic expectations. Many things can affect the interface speeds, even so, it's still fast as an internal drive, for both TB and USB3.5 stars BUFFALO. You make an amazing product. In the future please make bare bone enclosures. It's attractive, well build, and meets multiple uses. You can still have an HDD included as long as it's easily swapped by the costumer, levering your product for more than one use. Thank you. 5Excellent Good value for money, bus-powered and thereby really portable and extremely reliable. It warms up a bit, nothing that will make you worry, but makes no noise. The best choice (180.00 for 1 tera and 320 dollars for 2TB) in its range of price and considering it is thunderbolt and bus-powered. Those are the figures: reads at 384 MB/s and writes at 357 MB/s. Let us compare.- That is roughly the same as reaches Lacie 9000449 Rugged USB3 Thunderbolt Series 500GB, which is a SSD costing 500.00, bus-powered and promising speeds up to 385MB/s.-LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt-2 Portable Hard Drive 1TB SSD for 1299.00 achieves 1100-1375MB/s but you need a cord and I guess on a thunderbolt 1 environment it will do half so great, but its performance is astoundingly better than a non-portable pegasus 2, which reaches 750MB/s through thunderbolt 2, just the same as its portable version we will consider below.-LaCie 5big Thunderbolt Series 10TB External Hard Drive is an HDD non-portable which achieves 785MB/s in RAID 0 for 999.00, though you need a source.-WD My Passport Pro 4TB portable RAID storage HDD achieves 230 MB/s in two versions 2TB for 300.00 and 4TB for 373.00, they are both truly portable and bus-powered but the thunderbolt cable is embedded in the case.-Shadow Mini(tm) External 1TB USB 3.0 is a portable and bus-powered SSD for 550.00 which reads 392 MB/second and writes 425 MB/second, not so much for a SSD, yet its performance is roughly 20% superior to buffalo's but it costs more than 250%.- Finally, the charming portable SSD Promise Technology Pegasus J2 256GB made in Japan promises up to 750 Mbps once you use the power adaptor. When bus powered, it attains the figures of a USB 3.0, for the price of 529.00.I think all done and said, buffalo has really delivered a very competitive product. What is more: you can boot from it, as I do with my adobe suite, without any difference in performance from my Mac Pro retina 15 with 16GB and 750 of flash memory. 5Received a DUD!!! This is my third Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt USB 3.0 1 TB Portable Hard Drive (HD-PA1.0TU3) and I learned only today that it is a DUD when I picked up my Mac laptop from the authorized Mac repair shop! They asked me to bring it with me when I picked up the laptop instead of checking it when I took the laptop in. They found that won't communicate with ANY laptop: NOT Mine NOT the Shop's. I paid $140 for this particular hard drive and received it Oct. 23, 2018. I certainly expected it to last more than 3 MONTHS! Since I had two previous identical Buffalo drives, I never dreamt the reason it was't showing up on my laptop was due to the laptop. INSTEAD the BUFFALO DRIVE WAS THE PROBLEM ALL ALONG!!!!! I want the manufacturer to REPLACE IT AT NO COST!!!! IT IS CLEARLY A DUD!!!! 1Works Great Very fast Thunderbolt drive for Macs. The interface is basically transparent, that is, it works as fast as a comparable drive attached via SATA inside the machine. This makes it usable as an alternate boot drive if, for instance, you want to be able to run different versions of OS X, or run Windows without using space from your main drive. Internally it contains a decent 5400 RPM drive. I used mine that way for about a month and had no problems at all.Then I sold my old MacBook and had a 480GB SATA II (3Gbps) SSD laying about. So I took the MiniStation apart and replaced it with the SSD. This VOIDS the warranty - it is GLUED together - so don't try this at home ! Once again it is just as fast as when the SSD was mounted internally on a SATA bus. For this older generation SSD that is in excess of 250MB/s read and 200MB/s write. Call it 4-5x as fast as the hard drive it replaced. A SATA III (6Gbps) SSD would be even faster.The MiniStation was worth its cost just to get the Thunderbolt enclosure that supports SATA III SSD drives. And I still use the 1TB hard drive that it contained as a backup disk in a USB3 enclosure. So why not just use the SSD on USB3? Well, it turns out that the 5GB USB 3 bus, which should be fast enough to max out my SATA II SSD, is not. I don't know why and I kinda don't care, since Thunderbolt is just screaming fast.Whether you buy this to hack it, as I did, or you buy it to use as a very fast external 1TB drive, I think you will find it is a good product at a reasonable price. Now, if Buffalo would only sell the enclosure by itself... maybe without the glue :-) 5This is such a waste to have bought from them because I specifically bought ... This is such a waste to have bought from them because I specifically bought it so that I could use it for Thunderbolt capability, but it dismounts randomly whenever I'm using Thunderbolt. I have to use USB 3 which I could have easily bought a cheaper and better USB 3 drive if that was what I was wanting. Do not purchase from them. A complete waste of money and they won't give me an opportunity to get it replaced or refunded. 1Fast, Durable, Attractive I really like everything about this little drive. It is fast, durable, and attractive. I have owned one that I purchased well over a year ago, and I recently just ordered another. One of the best side benefits of this drive is that it comes with a thunderbolt and usb3 cable, so you have everything you need without having to order more accessories. That alone makes the value of this drive a bit better. It also aesthetically has a pleasing look and feel to it. It fits in well sitting next to my MacBook Pro. There is some texture to the top, so it isn't very slippery, and the bottom has a few rubberized sections that allow it to hold onto a surface pretty well. There is a light on the bottom if it is plugged in which is helpful to indicate if everything is plugged in, but it does not glare or overpower you with some super bright led that blinks and annoys you like some externals. I hope Buffalo continues to make this drive, or I may have to order some in bulk. With usbc becoming the new standard, having a connector that is very weak and prone to damage, I will continue to rely on Thunderbolt 2 devices as long as I can. 5Wonderful Time Machine drive (1TB) Quick background info:iMac 27" 2011 model with 2 Thunderbolt ports.Video Editor & PhotographerNeeded a Time Machine driveOwned the drive since December(2 months ago)The drive is fantastic and does what it says. It works.I don't mind the slower 5200RPM speed. I figure since I am only using it as a Time Machine drive, there is no reason for me to want a 7200RPM drive It literally just sits there on my desk doing nothing but backing up. The backing up process doesn't need to be fast.I bought thunderbolt because:1. I didn't want it to take up a firewire port. My current video drive is firewire so I needed that to stay available. I still have an extra thunderbolt available if necessary whilst keeping my firewire available(yes I know you can buy a firewire to thunderbolt adapter).2. This drive seemed super reliable from the reviews. (And so far it is. I'll update in about 6 months)Overall, its a really pretty drive and really tiny as well. The white LED light in front is a great touch. Only 2 ports on the back. Love how clean it makes my desk. I totally recommend it as your backup drive that sits there doing nothing but backing up. Can't say I would recommend it as a workhorse editing drive though I wouldn't imagine it being fast enough, especially for large RAW video files. 5Excellent External Drive for MBA I wanted a fast and big-capacity external drive that was also portable for my mid-2011 13" MacBook Air equipped with the Thunderbolt port. I make frequent business trips to Asia and always travel with two backup drives - the other being a Slim G-Drive 500GB. I had a slim Seagate 340GB drive but it's been acting real funky so I decided to get the Buffalo MiniStation 1TB drive for backup as well as keeping all of my music, movies, old photo and document archives that I didn't want taking up space on the 250GB MBA. During my travels, I keep one drive in the check-in luggage and one with the MBA in the hand-carry backpack, just in case I lose one or the other. I also have two large FireWire drives at home. One really can never have too many backups.I'm very pleased with the performance and the look of the Buffalo drive. After partitioning it to two separate drives (250GB for TimeMachine backup and the remainder for media archives), I got them encrypted and did a full-backup as well as moving over all the big media files much quicker than the USB or FireWire drives I have. I understand that the drive isn't all that fast but I'm just a business pro and do not use the drive to work on large media files like photos or videos to edit. I'm mainly a business productivity software, email, and web-surfing kind of guy so this drive more than exceeds my needs for backup and just accessing movies to view and having old archives for quick access.The Buffalo MiniStation is very quiet and it's one really handsome looking piece of gear that matches up nicely with all the other Apple gear I use: the MBA, 27" Thunderbolt Display, white iPad 2, and white iPhone 4S. It's so quiet that I don't even notice that it's doing a backup. It's also great to know that I have ample space left for future archiving of movies, music and photos that I don't need on the MBA. Accessing the files from the drive is as fast as I'd ever need it to be. I did notice that the copy/write speed is about 100MB/sec as another reviewer noted, which is plenty fast enough for my modest needs. This drive isn't cheap for 1TB storage space but that's plenty big and the fast performance, portability, and being able to use the MBA's Thunderbolt port are all big pluses for a business pro on the move. Highly recommended. 5
