More Info

G-Technology's 3TB G-Drive Professional External Hard Drive is great for storage intensive applications, including audio and video editing, digital photography, MP3 libraries, and high-speed data backup. This external hard drive system features a high-speed 7200 rpm SATA II drive with a total of 3TB of storage. While you can connect the G-Drive to a computer via eSATA, FireWire-800, FireWire-400 (via included adapter cable), or USB 2.0, you can optimize its data transfer speed via the eSATA interface. If connected via the eSATA port, you can transfer data at a rate of over 100 MB/s.

The G-Drive is formatted for Mac's right out of the box, so you can quickly start transferring your files or even backup your computer's hard drive via Time Machine. In addition, you can quickly and easily set the G-Drive up for Windows use as well. Moreover, you can even format your G-Drive for use with both a Mac and Windows system. If you do, you will need a software utility like MacDrive (not included), which allows a Windows OS to mount Mac formatted drives.

If you ever decide 3TB of memory isn't enough memory, you can always connect more G-Drives to your desktop using the G-Tech 4-Port, PCIe x4 eSATA adapter (not included) or another company's adapter. You can also connect more than one drive to your laptop or desktop via FireWire daisy-chaining or through a USB 2.0 hub.

The hard drive is housed in a unique, all-aluminum external casing that also holds an integrated heat sink. The heat sink provides near silent operation and ensures proper cooling for long life and data reliability. Whether you're working with image, music, video, or data files, you'll have a durable high-speed storage solution sure to please in the G-Drive.

For the best performance, connect through the eSATA interface for sustained data transfer rate of over 100MB/s
