When it comes to choosing a portable hard drive there are quite a lot of options to choose from. When I am looking for a portable hard drive the things I consider is performance, protection, and security. The drive we are taking a look at today has all of these and even a cool way to unlock the drive. The drive I am talking about us the Buffalo MiniStation Extreme NFC and it offers military spec shock protection, IPX3 standard water resistance, IP5X standard dust resistance, and hardware encryption. On top of that it comes with built in NFC technology that with the included SmartCard will allow you to easily unlock the drive. We will be taking a look at the 1TB (HD-PZN1.0U3B) version today.
Special thanks to Buffalo for providing us with the MiniStation Extreme NFC Portable Hard Drive to review.
The Buffalo MiniStation Extreme NFC comes in a nice retail box. On the front it shows a picture of the drive and lets us know the capacity and some of the main feature. Again we received the 1TB version, but it also comes in a 2TB version.
On the back of the box it goes into detail on some of the main features and also lets us know that the drive comes with TurboPC EX software and a backup utility.
Getting everything out of the box we have the MiniStation Extreme NFC portable hard drive, USB 3.0 extension cable, NFC SmartCard, and setup guide.
