Who is Buffalo Technology

It is always interesting and exciting to get to look at a product from a company that you have never dealt with before.  Part of the process of reviewing products is learning the way that a particular company does things, and as you work with companies, you start to learn their strengths and weaknesses.  I believe this is as much a part of the review process as actually looking at the product itself. 

Today we have the opportunity to look at a product from a new company for Legit Reviews.  Buffalo Technology is branded as “Japan’s #1 Module Manufacturer.”  We have the opportunity to look at one of their DDR2 products today, as well as look at the company itself.

Sometimes the best way to find out something about someone you do not know much about is to just ask them, or in our case, we just went to their site to see what they say about themselves.  So here is a brief bio of the company, right from their site…
