Buffalo Introduces 100GB External SSD Drive

Buffalo TurboUSB Solid State Drive

Buffalo has introduced to the market a 100GB Flash-based solid state drive, exceeding the more mainstream 64GB capacity.

The Japanese text on its announcement describes the new drive, Buffalo TurboUSB, as a “hybrid silicon disk,” which refers to its use of two types of flash memory in a hybrid configuration: Single Level Cell (SLC) for its speed and reliability and Multi Level Cell (MLC) for its low-cost.

The Buffalo SSD measures about the same size as a business card, width- and lengthwise; it retails for ¥107,720 in Japan, about $950. There’s also a 64GB version at $665 and a cheaper 32GB model for $312.
