Buffalo now shipping first USB 3.0 external hard drive

Buffalo is now selling the first external hard drive that supports USB 3.0, meaning if you have the fancy new ports on your computer (which you probably don't), you'll be able to get insanely fast transfer speeds.

The drives, which come in 1TB and 1.5TB varieties for $225 and $284, aren't outrageously priced for being a fresh technology, so if you feel like popping a USB 3.0 into your computer, this should be a cool way to get all the juice out of it.
