USB 3.0 can provide a data rate of up to 5 Gb/s or 625 MB/s and that’s awesome. Buffalo beats everyone to release an external storage beast,┬áthat can work on USB 3.0 and give a high transfer rate. The device is well suited for professionals and geeks. We don’t expect any of you to have a USB 3.0 on your motherboard that’s why the hard drive comes with a PCI Express Interface Card that goes into your motherboard and provides a high speed connectivity through USB port.

However, many of us will not be able to get the 650 MB/s transfer without USB 3.0 support in our motherboard. The PCI interface card that comes with the Hard disk can provide a transfer rate of up to 130 MB/s which is 3 times the transfer rate of USB 2.0. The device is available in sizes of 1, 1.5 and 2 Tera Bytes. Note that the Interface card is worth $60 charged separately.
