What capacity are the two drives in this device? 500GB or 1TB each? Description is ambiguous. G-Technology 1TB G-RAID mini USB 3.0 Hard Drive

The description says that the device can do RAID 0 or RAID 1, but it doesn't say whether the "1TB" version is based on RAID 1 (which would be (2) 1TB drives or RAID 0 (which would mean (2) 500GB drives. The specs/details don't specify. IMO if it's 500GB each the description is dangerously deceptive for non-techies.
