I'm thinking of getting a Buffalo external hard drive. They claim that:

"Buffalo Tools (TurboPC and TurboCopy) software offers up to 85% faster data writing speeds"

1.is there some trickery going on there -- how does it work?

2. i'm hoping to be able to plug the hard-drive into my DVD player to play .avi's from it ... will these Buffalo tools interfere with that do you think?

I very seriously doubt you will see anywhere near an 85% speed increase. That claim alone would be enough to keep me from purchasing anything from that company.
The biggest issue with pre-assembled external devices is the low quality circuitry used in the enclosures.
Best option for an external drive is to purchase an external case and install the Hdd of your choice.

thanks, I was a bit concerned. You're probably right about the 85% claim.

Say, what do you think about when you're buying an external case and Hdd, apart from physical size and storage capacity -- are there other valuable features to look for?
