The Buffalo MiniStation Air 2 is a Wifi enabled and USB connected portable hard drive which as well as mains can also be battery-powered which enables users to expand their storage capacities without the hassle of annoying wires and cables, while also being usable on the go.The hard drive has a very nice feel to it, it is a good size and feels reassuringly made, this is coupled with a 3 year warranty which always confirms quality.

The unit has a battery indicator, power, Wifi and WPS/AOSS light on the front.  AOSS is Buffalo’s “Air Station One-Touch Secure System” which in short is their own secure system to connect wirelessly by pressing just one button.The unit can be charged by the supplied plug or USB and the suggested battery life is around 12 hours and in our tests this seems accurate.

It does have a slightly higher price tag than some of its competitors however shopping around you can get a deal which then makes it very competitive.  For your money you get a very capable and good looking portable hard drive. RRP £115
