David,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It is quiet, easy to operate. It is plug and play, but you have to follow the install wizard, which is easy.

Once it is installed you just set a password to access the drive, if you have opted to use the file encryption, just make sure you remember the password :).

After this it just shows on your computer in Windows Explorer as an additional drive, it will show with the next drive letter allocated, eg. drive D.

Then use it just like any other hard drive, easy !

I use it to store all my digital photos and with the USB 3.0 it is fast.

With 2 TB of storage it is plenty large enough for most users.
Bad points:
None that I know of so far. Only had it for 2 months.

Norman, Lancashire

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Just sits there and does the job. Has been running 24hrs a day, 7 days a week for 3 weeks now. Long may it continue.
Bad points:
Perhaps a little noisier than expected but it shuts down when not in active use so only a minor issue

Manufacturer's Description

DriveStation Velocity is the perfect solution for those who need to transfer files quickly and easily. The amazing speed performance comes from a combination of a more efficient improved USB 3.0 interface, Buffalo’s enhanced TurboPC EX data transfer and copy utility and a 7,200 rpm drive. If you haven’t moved up to USB 3.0 yet – DriveStation Velocity is backward compatible with USB 2.0.

Powerful yet easy-to-use security options include automatic hardware encryption that protects your data, with no loss of performance.
