    I have had this drive for about 18 months and I have only good things to say about it! It's connected to my top spec'ed mid 2011 Imac. I use this setup for video editing with FCPX. I edit directly from this disc and it performs fantastic! Recommended!

    Works Beautifully

    Blazing fast data transfers, relatively quiet and cool running. Sleeps when not in use. Built solid as far as I can tell. The only thing I would change is that darn light on the front...there needs to be a way to dim that...I use this as part of my Mac Mini HTPC setup, and man, is it distracting. Going to have to go old school, and tape over it. Grrr. Otherwise, it seems solid, and haas given me no issues.

    Solid Performer

    I have used this drive daily for over a year with no problems. Due to the fact it only has two HD drives the T-Bolt connection is still faster than the RAIDed twin HDDs. That being said it runs great with full uncompressed HD without a snag. It also fits nicely into my workflow as I can run a display and the drive off a single connection.

    The RAID here is just for drive speed so there is no data backup, but we have dozens and dozens of older G-Tech drives and only a few failures over 3 years. If you need the backup option, or to hot swap failing drives then the G-Speed series is what you are looking for.

    Great Drive

    • Written by from Pompano Beach

    This drive is great! Fast, quiet, cool! The only reason why it does not get 5 stars is that it does not go to sleep when computer sleeps. Why that is, is not to understand since the Lacie Thunderbold drives do ( and they have an on/off switch as wel)l. Otherwise perfect, like always with G-Tech...
