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…]
G-Tech showed the G-Dock ev and G-Drive ev hard drives (shown above) at NAB 2013. I stopped by their booth to take a closer look at them.
The G-Dock ev is a Thunderbolt dock, which ships with two of the G-Drive ev drives. [click to continue…]
B&H has the WD My Book Velociraptor Duo for $649 (reg. $799) through April 11. I tested the Velociraptor Duo a couple months back and got read and write speeds around 350MB/s. It’s a seriously fast drive. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The Western Digital VelociRaptor Duo Thunderbolt drive is a power-user’s dream external drive kitted out with two 10,000RPM VelociRaptor drives. Inside the box, WD includes a Thunderbolt cable (a $50 accessory), which was missing from the original WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo.
The drive has two Thunderbolt ports, which allows you to daisy chain it with other My Book Thunderbolt Duo or VelociRaptor Duo drives. Additionally, you can add a displayport monitor at the end of the chain. [click to continue…]
