        Comments about G-Technology 8TB G-Speed Q 4-Bay Storage Array:

        This unit comes striped RAID5, so if one drive ever fails, just slide in a replacement drive and the other drives rebuild it. No data loss! That is the sort of peace of mind I need for my clients' footage and masters.

        Very nice device

        By David

        from Dallas

        Comments about G-Technology 8TB G-Speed Q 4-Bay Storage Array:

        Only had for a couple weeks but so far everything is great. Worked great right out of box. Just plugged into Mac and popped up on desktop. Very fast with USB 3. Fairly quiet esp. for a RAID array. You can hear it but not annoying. Not really any noisier than a single drive. Seems very sturdy and well built. Smaller and heavier than anticipated. Looks very nice on desktop. So far I would give it 5 stars.
