Best practice for PrintWriter?

I've currently got this code in my
PrintWriter out = new PrintWriter(new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(new File("output.txt"), true))); out.println("Some text output, etc., etc.");
I've seen examples that don't use the BufferedWriter, so I'm wondering if the BufferedWriter really necessary / could including it or excluding it hurt performance?
NB - The output file is to record
results - about 100 characters are written to the file every second.

100 characters per second? No, buffering isn't going to make much difference on such a low volume of data.
I agree. Here's the link:
