The 8TB G-Speed Q 4-Bay Storage Array from G-Technology features an 8TB storage capacity capable of holding a variety of files including HD movies, videos, photos, music, documents. Easily connect this storage array to both Macs and PCs via the integrated USB 3.0, FireWire 800 and eSATA ports. Each included Enterprise Class Drive comes equipped with a 7200rpm drive speed along with up to a 64MB cache memory buffer.

The G-Speed Q can be configured in RAID 0 for maximum capacity and performance, or in RAID 5 for data security and redundancy. Please note that Maximum capacity in RAID 5 is reduced by 25% due to data redundancy and all G-Speeds are pre-formatted in RAID 5 to save you time. Simply reformat to RAID 0 to achieve full capacity. However, the drives are only hot-swappable in RAID 5 allowing your data to be protected in the event of a single hard drive failure.

        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.
