Buffalo Technology's new HDV-SA series enables users to maintain extensive media libraries while freeing up TVs, TV recorders, and PCs to keep recording the programs and movies they love. Buffalo's external Media Hard Drive is both beautiful and well-designed. From the outside the drive visually blends with surrounding devices and cables are placed out-of-the-way, and held there, to maximize the drive's convenience. Inside the HDV-SA series has a special fan-less and floating structure, and vibration-dampening rubber, to assure the quietest possible operation. Buffalo's Media Hard drive is Panasonic-approved and includes optimized firmware that helps ensure smooth streaming playback with special AV commands and superior error handling for Panasonic devices.
