The Buffalo MiniStation Metro HD-PXTU2 is a mid-range ultra-portable external hard drive similar to the Buffalo MiniStation Cobalt HD-PETU2. The Metro and Cobalt differ in two significant ways: the Metro comes in 320GB, 500GB and 1TB varieties while the Cobalt offers 320GB, 500GB and 640GB; the Metro features an integrated cable management system while the Cobalt doesn't. Otherwise, the two portable drives sport similar features including shock resistance and the Buffalo Tools Software Suite.

The Metro HD-PXTU2's integrated cable management system stores its USB cable safely within the body of the drive, ensuring that the cable will never be left behind. Its BumperBody Shock Protection system protects the Metro HD-PXTU2 from fall damage by way of shock absorbers surrounding each corner of the actual drive inside the case. Meanwhile, the Metro HD-PXTU2's Buffalo Tools Software Suite offers faster data transfer rates (TurboPC), reduced power consumption (ECO Manager) and simple data backup (Buffalo's Backup Utility).
