Apart from the LinkStation WSX2.0TL/R1, Buffalo Technology also launched the HD-LBFVU2 external hard drive. The drive connects to the host over USB 2.0 interface, and provides 3 TB of storage. Measuring 189 x 123 x 39 mm, with about 1 kg of weight, the drive makes use of internal silicone cushioning to reduce operating noise, and protect the drive inside. Like the new LinkStation NAS, this drive is also set for market release in mid-August, priced at around $285.

285$? my 2 tb usb 2.0 drive was 75$, I could get 4 of those for the same price as one 3tb drive.

and yes I agree thes large drives should be on usb 3.0, even spin disk drives can do well more than 60MB/s (480Mb/s)
