Designed for demanding applications and multi-stream HD, 2K, 4K, and HDR workflows, the G-RAID 8TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from G-Technology provides up to 8TB of enterprise-class storage that is made up of two 4TB 7200 rpm 3.5" hard drives and is equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one USB 3.1 (USB 3.1 Gen 2) port, and one HDMI port. While one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports is used to interface with your host system at speeds of up to 440 MB/s, the other can be used to daisy chain up to five additional devices to your G-RAID. If your system doesn't have Thunderbolt 3, you can use the 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 port, while the HDMI port supports HDCP 2.2, HDR, and 4K/60 fps video passthrough. For those who wish to use this G-RAID with their USB Type-A system, a USB Type-C to Type-A cable is included that supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 (USB 3.1 Gen 2), 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1), and 480 Mb/s USB 2.0.

The dual drive bays of this G-RAID support hardware-controlled RAID 0 and RAID 1. RAID 0 stripes the two drives together, providing enhanced read and write speeds, but no data redundancy, while RAID 1 mirrors the content of one drive to the other, providing 1:1 data redundancy at the cost of performance. For those who do not need the benefits of a RAID, JBOD is also supported.

The G-RAID 8TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array comes formatted for macOS 10.12+. After a simple reformat, it may also be used with Windows 8.1 and 10. Also included is a 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt cable, an AC power adapter, and a power cable. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

    G-RAID 8TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array (2 x 4TB) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rude Tech Support I ordered this storage unit to use with my new MacBook Pro. �I went to the G-Technology website to find a complete manual for the G-Raid Thunderbolt 3 to help me with the set up on my Mac running macOS High Sierra. �All the manuals contained dated information and some of the links did not direct me to the correct downloads, nor was the directions on which download to get correct. �(I needed to change my set up from RAID 0 to RAID 1 and the link and directions in the manual were incorrect.)� I called G-Tchnology support system to get some help and while I got what i needed and spoke to an actual human, the tech I spoke with was very rude and short with me.� Great product so far, but confusing to set up with the published information on their website. The quick guide that come with the unit is not near detailed enough. Also the search engine on the site doesn't come close to getting what I needed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and fast so far I bought two of these, one for editing and one for backup, and they're performing well so far. I'm seeing transfer rates around 350MB/second over the Thunderbolt 3 connection, which seems to handle high-bitrate 4K footage very well. Full backups also execute within my scheduled backup windows, so the process doesn't interfere with my work.�� A couple of small annoyances: The lighted G-Technology logo on the front of the drives is very bright, so keep that in mind if you intend to put these anywhere within your field of vision. I ended up turning mine around so the logos face the wall (sorry G-Tech) The drives can be a bit noisy, and the enclosure can transfer vibration through to a desktop. Mine caused a noticeably low-frequency hum as they ran on my desk, so I bought two low cost audio monitor isolation pads for the drives. That solved the problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like it. Solid build, quiet (for spinning drives in an enclosure with fan)..
