          This is used as main data storage for ~/Pictures and ~/Music. I like the device. It's quiet, fast and stays cool. The only quirk is that it goes to sleep often, no matter my energy savings settings in Mavericks, the drive will seemingly sleep, and have to be woken to save/work on data within those slices. Still researching ...

                        This drive is super fast and plenty quiet for my needs! Having the built in RAID is nice, since I don't have to fuss with RAID setups. If I had any complaint, it's that, unlike other similar Thunderbolt hard drives, this drive does NOT automatically power up and power down when it detects a signal through the Thunderbolt cable. This means that you have to reach behind and turn of the drive when you are finished with it. Yes, I've been doing this for years with older drives, but it just stinks to know that other drives like the LaCie and Western Digital can automatically power up through the Thunderbolt cable.

                          This thing smokes! I came very close to buying a new Macbook that I can't afford, not now. The G-Tech Thunderbolt drive totally set my computer free. I edit tons of video and motion graphic files, this thing makes sport of it. It isn't cheap and I sure didn't want to come off of the money, but after using this I can't afford not to have it. My external monitor hooked right up to its 2nd port. After I transferred my files from my old external, my projects opened right up without having to relink. And, it's by a brand that I really trust.It does have a VERY annoying light that constantly strobes. I'm not a fan of the big aluminum shoebox design. Mac only. You have to manually turn the thing on/off. And it doesn't come with a Thunderbolt cable (so add $$ to the price). But all and all and very pleased, tickled even. I do hate that freak'n light though.

                            Comments about G-Technology 4TB G-RAID External Hard Drive Array with Thunderbolt:

                            Use this for high-end video projects. Alone (not daisy chained or configured for faster speed than normal), I get 285mb/s write speed. 290 read speed.

                            I often hear people say that g-tech isn't worth the price. I disagree. This is super fast, wonderfully quiet (compared to my last drive), and it has been a joy to work with. I've owned 2 other g-tech drives – never had to revert to a backup because one died on me. Don't expect this one to tank on me either. Highly recommended. Will probably get another.

                                    Returned a LaCie because of loud fan noise. While this is bigger in size and storage, it is much quieter which was very important to me. I have set up my iTunes library on the drive, and even though it is external, the access is quick.

                                          I use this for overflow storage using my macbook. It is plug & play, so no set-up time is nice. Photos on this external drive can be quickly edited in Lightroom and Photoshop, which is exactly what I was looking for. I realize my review has more to do with the speed of thunderbolt technology than the actual hard drive itself. I don't know how it compares with the Lacie equivalent, but I chose this one because hard drives standing vertical make me uncomfortable. Since I just started using it, I can't say much else.

                                          This is my first G-drive purchase, though I've used them on various jobs in the past. I was looking for a large thunderbolt drive to be my catch-all and backup for my new iMac. The one thing I didn't realize is that this doesn't come with a thunderbolt cable, which was $50 extra at the time of purchase. Thankfully my local Apple Store had one left in stock. Make sure to order one when you order this drive. This drive is plug and play with any thunderbolt enabled Mac. Its screaming fast. Noticeably so, with file transfers and editing.

                                            The drive is very quick connected to the iMac through the Thunderbolt connection. It is setup as RAID 0, but I configured it as a RAID 1. The fan can slightly be heard when the unit warms up, but it doesn't really annoy me. The setup was as easy as just plugging it to the computer and turning it on. I use the unit as a working external drive for all our photo sessions. I see no delay when accessing the images through Lightroom or Photoshop. I plan to purchase two more units. The only con is that the unit doesn't power off when you place the computer in sleep mode or turn it off, but it's not a big deal.
