It’s a bit bit heavy at 3.2 pounds, but nothing beats this silver, brushed metal dive in speed and versatility. Name a port and the DriveStation Combo 4 has it: USB 2.0, FireWire 400, two FireWire 800 ports, and a eSATA connections.

Here is a more detailed review: http://gizmoave.com/2008/10/29/buffalo-drivestation-combo-4/.
Thanks in part to the included Buffalo TurboUSB software, this drive turned in the best read and write speeds over USB 2.0. If you are lucky enough to own a notebook with a FireWire 800 port or eSATA port, the Combo 4 will blow you away. It offered top-notch read/write speeds with the former connection, and trailed only the LaCie Hard Disk in write speed over eSATA.
