G-Technology 0G05758 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for demanding applications and multi-stream HD, 2K, 4K, and HDR workflows, the G-RAID 16TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from G-Technology provides up to 16TB of enterprise-class storage that is made up of two 8TB 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 400 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 16TB 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 16TB 2-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array (2 x 8TB) is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but with issues Very fast and quite. Comes configured for RAID 0 as one 16TB HFS+ volume - the total of the two hard drives. Easy to configure for RAID 1 using G RAIDS configurator, which I did without any problem. Unfortunately, G-RAID's internal hard drives can't be replaced by the user. So if something happens to one of the drives in the RAID 1 configuration you'll need to call G-RAID since you can't just replace the hard drive yourself. Two additional Thunderbolt ports on the back of the drive allow for easy daisy chaining of additional Thunderbolt devices. The drive does not share the computer's power status and so will stay on when my Mac is turned off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the drive but... Purchased the 2x8TB Thunderbolt 3 array for my new iMAC with High Sierra OS.� I'm not the computer nerd most people are about this stuff so take that into consideration... It took me three days to get the drive up and running the way I originally anticipated. The 'days were taken as only evenings researching what I needed to do to set up the drive with a RAID1 configuration. Out if the box the unit comes as RAID0. Apple decided to change their way of looking at RAID configurations so it would not recognize the drive any other way. Researching softRAID software was a good choice. Just purchasing the lite version was not the answer to convert to RAID1. Long story short if you wish to convert to RAID1 or JBOD... Dig into the G-Technologies web site support specifically for the thunderbolt configuration software specific to this drive. Run it and convert to JBOD and presto, you see two drives you can work with. I converted to the softRAID system which seems superior to the appleRAID system. Ran a read/write speed test on the drive and it works great. No complaints after the initial setup learning curve. Also, on a side note, there is an illuminated 'G' on the front of the unit that lights up when the unit is powered on. Wish that they allowed it to be dimmed because my work space is dark and it is somewhat distracting. My older 2x4TB non-Thunderbolt unit is perfect in this regard.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from How to Configure the drives� is not made easy to find Just recently connected.� As my iMac is Thunderbolt 2, I had to buy an Apple adapter cable Thunderbolt/USB-c to Thunderbolt2, plus a Thunderbolt 2 - Thunderbolt 2 cable. After wasting four days trying to get the computer to recognise the G-RAID, I found that the Apple adaptor was defective and had to exchange it. Then the computer recognised the drive. The next issue was how to configure the drive set to Raid 1. There are no instruction in the packaging. The so-called "Quick Start" guide and the user manual which is only available as a download from the Technology site do not explain this! Only after searching the wd.community.com forum and the G-technology website did I discover that there is a so-called "Configurator". You will find this at� support.g-technology.com/downloads.aspx?lang=en The download: G-RAID Removable with Thunderbolt Utility Download the latest version of the G-RAID Removable with Thunderbolt Utility (TB2/TB3) I am now about to start backing up my system.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy It works fine I guess, but it's very noisy compared to my previous G-Raid Thunderbolt 2. Not suitable for audio production environments.
    Date published: 2018-01-25
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fan Failed after 10 Months It stores data fine, but the fan failed after about 10 months and started to get loud. I feel like it's a bit over priced for what it is, though limited other options on the market.
