Buffalo Wireless 500GB hard drive available from £125

If you want to share a significant amount of data between a few devices wirelessly, options are quite limited. You can either use a hotspot that’s connected to a USB drive or you can use a wireless router that has a USB port.

Buffalo offers a more elegant and less troublesome option in the form of the Buffalo Wireless USB 3.0 Ministation Air, a 500GB hard disk drive that can deliver data wirelessly, for as little as £124.20 including delivery from online retailer CPC.

The storage device is compatible with Wi-Fi and USB 3.0. It acts as a hotspot and allows connected devices to share Internet access. Up to three devices can connect to it simultaneously according to Buffalo, with more likely to saturate the data connection.

It can be charged using a USB 3.0 and is compatible with iOS and Android, making it a good solution for tablet and smartphone users.

The Bufffalo Ministation Air has a battery life of up to four hours and comes with a three-year limited warranty, as well as WPS, AOS and WPA2 wireless encryption functionality.
