    Buffalo Technology released its newest line of portable hard drives, the HD-PVRU2 series. While the drive looks like almost any other portable hard drive from Buffalo, for a change it has a rugged matte finish. The HD-PVRU2 comes in capacities of 320 GB and 500 GB. It measures 81 (W) x 16 (H) x 130 (D) mm, and weighs 190 g. It draws power from, and connects to the system using USB 2.0 interface. A proprietary Turbo USB technology aims to squeeze the most out of USB 2.0, with some higher transfer speeds. The bundled ecoManager software spins down the drive when idle. The 320GB and 500GB models will be priced at $100 and $150, respectively, in Japan.

    this turbo USB stuff was in the news some time back i believe, something codec like.

    IIRC, this tech can boost the transfer rate cap from 30MB/s or so, to around the 40MB/s mark - nothing massive, but it certainly helps (especially since you dont need new USB controllers like USB 3.0)
