G-Technology has released updated versions of its G-Drive Slim and G-Drive Mobile drives. The drives now offers USB 3.0 connectivity and faster drives. Both have been upgraded to 7200RPM hard drives to take advantage of the additional data transfer rate that USB 3.0 offers. [click to continue…]
The G-Technology G-Dock ev is a new hard drive dock that is something we could really only dream about (if that) before the arrival of Thunderbolt. The G-Dock features two drive bays that accepts G-Technology G-Drive ev and G-Drive ev PLUS that, once inserted, mount on your system over the G-Dock’s Thunderbolt connection.
The novel feature of the G-Dock is that the G-Drives can be ejected and taken with you for use on the go via a USB 3.0 connection on the “portable” G-Drive ev units. However, the G-Drives connect into the dock via a SATA connection instead of the USB 3.0 used for when the drive is portable. A very slick set-up indeed. [click to continue…]
