Product Information

  • Overview

    The G-Technology G-RAID with Thunderbolt hard drive helps you get the most out of your professional content-creation applications. It's 12 times faster than FireWire 800, with raw speed that other I/O interfaces can't match.

    About Thunderbolt

    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.

    Thunderbolt gives you up to 10 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.

  • Wouldn't wake-up

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I purchased the 4TB RAID to back-up all of my movies. It transferred all of the data relatively quickly. However, once the data I purchased the 4TB RAID to back-up all of my movies. It transferred all of the data relatively quickly. However, once the data was backed up and the drive fell asleep it would not wake up. I tried to eject the drive to turn it off and on again but it would not eject. Eventually I ended up turning off the drive without ejecting. Contacted tech support multiple times and got different explanations. I returned the drive and they sent a new one. Same problem with the new drive. I returned that one and they sent another replacement. Same problem again. They were willing to keep sending me new drives until I received one that work. I didn't want to do that and ask them to send the standard 4TB drive, not RAID, it works perfect and I am completely happy. Their only suggestion with regards to the RAID was to purchase disksomnia to prevent the drive from falling asleep.

  • Will not work as an encrypted Time Machine backup

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    Great drive. I loved all aspects of it until I learned that it cannot be used to hold an encrypted Time Machine backup. The issue Great drive. I loved all aspects of it until I learned that it cannot be used to hold an encrypted Time Machine backup. The issue does not seem to be unique to the G-RAID, but rather appears to be intrinsic to all RAID drives. Since our enterprise IT staff require that all backup Time Machine disks be encrypted, unfortunately I had to return this and go with a slower non-RAID model. Other than that was very happy with the disk.
