Product Information

  • Overview

    G-Technology's G-RAID Studio is a high-performance Thunderbolt 2 storage system with hardware RAID and two removable 7200 rpm hard drives. Configurable in RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD, G-RAID Studio offers transfer rates up to 360 MB/s to easily support 2K and compressed 4K video workflows. Which means you save time when working on demanding video- and photo-editing projects.

    Thunderbolt 2

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    With Thunderbolt 2 now built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect up to three 4K displays at once. Thunderbolt 2 gives you up to 20 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch. Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

    After reading everything I could about this drive, I was very concerned about the described noise from the fan and head chatter. After reading everything I could about this drive, I was very concerned about the described noise from the fan and head chatter. I almost picked a different product because of it. Turns out, it was really nothing to be concerned about. Just finished copying over a 780 GB Final Cut library, and although you can certainly hear the fan, there was hardly any head chatter. I'm using it mirrored in RAID 1 Thunderbolt (I don't have a Thunderbolt 2 port) and it still flies. So far, half a day in, I'm very happy with this drive. Don't let the forum discussions about noise scare you away. Also, ordering on-line with Apple was a breeze - as always. Came a day early as well.

When I was in film school I first tried Maxtor and then LaCie. Both were complete junk. A teacher told me about g-technology drives, and I've never looked back. This newest addition to their family has been an excellent purchase. I've had zero problems with it, and love the Thunderbolt connectivity. I can edit HD footage with my Macbook Pro without breaking a sweat.
