Buffalo MiniStation Slim measures 8.8mm and has 500GB storage

Buffalo has unveiled a new ultra-thin storage unit that it claims is the thinnest on the market, measuring in at just 8.8mm thick.

The device, called the MiniStation Slim, offers storage of 500GB and has data transfer speeds of 5Gbit/s via a USB 3.0 port. It can also double as a hard disk drive recorder for audio and video content.

The full dimensions of the device are 8.8mm thick, 11.5cm long and 7.9cm wide and it weighs 140g. It's compatible with the new Microsoft operating system Windows 8, as well as Windows 7, Vista and XP, and Mac OS X 10.5 or later, the firm said.

"The MiniStation Slim is the latest addition to the Buffalo MiniStation family, and is a sleek, high performance, high capacity on-the-go storage gadget," added Paul Hudson, sales director for Northern Europe at the firm.

The MiniStation Slim will be available from Buffalo's resellers from a starting price of £60 and comes in either in red, black or silver.

The release is the latest in a series of new products from the firm after it launched its first enterprise-class products earlier this year, the TeraStation 7120r and TeraStation 7120r Enterprise.

These are both 2U rack-mount arrays supporting up to 12 enterprise Sata hard disks with four gigabit Ethernet ports for connectivity, and controllers based on quad-core Intel Xeon processors.
