The six-bay TeraStation Pro 6 is even newer, and nobody on the Buffalo stand was willing to venture a launch price. Nonetheless, product managers reckoned it would launch at a similar time to the TeraStation Pro 8.

Buffalo was also showing off a new MiniStation USB 3.0 portable high drive. Available in 500GB and 1TB capacities, the MiniStation costs 79 and 129 euros respectively.
