MiniStation: Stick Buffalo's New HDD Onto The Back Of Your TV

It’s hard to “innovate” when you’re a maker of  hard discs, but Japanese company Buffalo had an idea: why not offer a model users can stick to the back of the TV? The so-called MiniStation [JP] is supposed to make it possible to record programs directly onto the HDD via USB (if supported by the TV) and save some space at the same time.

The MiniStation offers 500GB of storage and is (of course) usable as a PC HDD, too.

Buffalo will start offering the MiniStation in Japan at the end of this month for $113.
