Room to store
Needed more room to store photographic and video files. Another unnamed drive has failed me twice, but this product has proven to do the job.
This is the second G-raid I’ve bought and I’m pleased with the design and quality.
I ordered this drive thinking that it was RAID 1 compatible, but I was totally wrong and should have read the description better (my fault). None the less this product was rock solid and is great. I would definitely recommend this for those who are in the market for a kick-ass RAID 0 drive. It’s built like a tank and fast.
Works with MAC
I have a 2TB and the 4 TB. The 2 is for video and photo files since my Mac hard-drive is full. I use the 4 as a Time Machine. I do not let either one run all the time the Mac is up and running. I only turn them on when I have new video/photo work to store. They started up and work as they should with the Mac. The finish matches the Mac. They are easy to install and use; three different computer to drive cables came with them. I can not speak to expected life as I have only had them for a short time, and I don’t leave them on all the time. Very happy with the Mac, very happy with the G-Tech external hard drives.
So far, so good
Have gone through LaCie products and not super happy with them. Grabbed one of these and I must say so far, so good (finding wood to knock on). It is quiet, works fast, and the construction matches the look of my MacPro nicely.
