    Buffalo rolled out one of its most capacious portable hard drives, the 1 TB MiniStation HD-PXT. The 1 TB drive has all the features of its MiniStation siblings, including 256-bit AES encryption, and wrap-around USB cable. It features a 2.5" form-factor HDD inside, and uses the USB 2.0 interface. It has a shock-resistant shell, and weighs 240 g. Bundled software includes a backup utility, and TurboPC, which improves transfer-speeds. The MiniStation HD-PXT releases in Europe later this month, at a price of €135.

    can anyone tell me why companies are still introducing this kinda stuff with usb 2.0 instead of 3.0? or is usb 3.0 a lot more expensive to manufacture?


    Especially since initial testing shows that usb 3.0 devices outperform 2.0 devices substantially even on 2.0 ports...
