Had got this from here-
Firstly, the pics-
Three things to note-
-the back of the box says 3 years warranty. There was some discussion on whether it was one year or three years
-Its portable, smaller than the galaxy note. The phone in the background is a galaxy note which has a 5.3" screen.
-Bill was a vat paid bill
Data transfer speeds-
Write speed I got on usb 3.0 using the default Windows copier was 83mbps average
Read was also around the 83 mark, surprisingly (maybe it was limited by the rpm of my laptop hard-drive)
copying with a non windows copier gave even lesser speeds (tera copy)- 50mbps
However copying with the copier given by buffalo (turbocopy) gave speeds as fast as the Windows copier (i.e. around 83mbps)
There is an awesome feature in the hdd that tells u if the usb port is usb 2.0 or usb 3.0. If plugged into a usb 3.0, it gives a blue light, while if plugged into a usb 2.0 port, the light is green. So expect slow (usb 2.0) speeds when the light is green.
All in all, a great move away from the conventional usb 2.0
Just need someone to confirm the speeds if they have a faster hard drive, my laptop hdd probably is probably limited to 5400rpm
