Buffalo Technology Drivestation Velocity (HD-LXx.0TU3)

No clue, unfortunately. However the quality of the USB 3.0 bridge chip they use also matters a great deal, so I honestly wouldn't stress about it too much.

WD Blacks in the older 500GB/platter configuration also are not especially fast by today's standards, so again it probably matters less.

I actually went to the store and bought the damn thing with 2TB version. :rolleyes:

The drive inside is actually Seagate should I say "infamous" 7200.14 Barracuda. http://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-drives/desktop-hard-drives/barracuda/?sku=ST2000DM001

It has 9VN164 firmware in it.

I have hard disk sentinel 4.10 running tests to disk, so far all seems to be ok.

Maybe I was little naive thinking this could be WD Black. Because of the pricetag alone I should have known better this is "just" Seagate :lol:

Read from around the web people have had issues with random "click" noises or chirp noises from Seagate 7200.14 drives... Lets see what this brings along. I just love this technology mambo jambo :D
