    Thirteen years ago, new PCs came with bulky, heavy 500MB hard drives inside. They were state of the art, and you could install the likes of Doom II and Duke Nukem 3D many times over. In 2008, things have moved on substantially. And we are now faced with a portable, external 2.5-inch hard drive from Buffalo, which has a capacity of half a terabyte. That's 500GB, 1000 times more than the internal drives of 13 years past.

    Standing proud on the desktop, the new Live version of Buffalo's LinkStation is immaculately styled and finished. In our tests, it also proved whisper-quiet in operation most of the time; the case fan only kicked in during periods of peak activity.

    This is a big, hefty drive weighing in at a whopping 5.8kg. The reason is that the chunky case holds no fewer than four separate hard drives equalling 1TB in size, which you can configure in various different modes via the USB connection.

    On the surface, this looks like any other external 120GB hard drive designed for the mobile user. Simply plug it in, allow Windows or the Mac OS to locate it and you have a large capacity drive to back up all your files

    Buffalo is no stranger to network-attached storage, or NAS devices. It's been pushing such storage for several years now; while it's not the most well-known name around, Buffalo is the world's leading manufacturer of these devices

    The amount of digital media we store is constantly changing and growing. With the advent of high-definition video, it is only going to get bigger. So, it makes sense to invest in an external storage

    When lack of storage is a problem, instead of wedging the traditional internal drive into your fixed desktop PC, you could get many additional benefits by using an external box loaded with extra capacity

    We're told that content is king. But, if you haven't got anywhere to store it, the boundless information ideal is nothing but a pipedream. This box sits on your network and acts as somewhere to store content

    An external hard drive as a home entertainment essential? There's no wireless network support, no audio or video line-outs and certainly no controls to play any media files stored on the drive
