Buffalo Intros Legacy DLNA TV-friendly Hard Drive

Buffalo introduced a unique new external hard drive that provides 3 TB of storage while retaining compatibility with certain kinds of DLNA-capable TVs that don't support mass storage volumes greater than 1 TB or 2 TB in size. The HD-ALCTU2/V, as it's known, features a selector switch on its front-panel, which "adjusts" capacities of its first volume (volume0) between its default 3 TB, to 2 TB, and even 1 TB. The remaining size gets logically partitioned off into different volumes. This allows not only compatibility with older TVs, but also the organization that comes with partitioning a large drive. Measuring 121 x 40 x 201 mm, the drive features an all-black body. Its front panel features status LEDs besides the selector switch. On its rear side is its DC power input, a Kensington lock slot, and a USB 2.0 connector. Pricing and availability are not announced.

different but imo it doesn't make much sense. why the switch? will many people buy this to work on multiple tvs, or rather just for an old dlna tv?
