The 12TB G-SPEED Q External Hard Drive Array from G-Technology is a high-performance, quad interface, desktop RAID that is compatible with Mac and Windows computer systems. The array features four enterprise-class 3.5" hard drives, each with a storage capacity of 3TB and a disk speed of 7200rpm. The array can connect to your computer via eSATA, FireWire-800, FireWire-400, or USB 2.0, and can be configured as a RAID 0 or RAID 5.

Cooling is provided by a smart fan, which varies speed based on the array's temperature.
