G-Technology G-Dock Ev review: A new level of external storage flexibility

c|net by Dong Ngo

The G-Dock Ev blends USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt technologies together to offer a fast and flexible storage option. It comes with two TB G-Drive Ev units that can double as standalone USB 3.0 portable drives.

You can also set up the G-Dock's storage using RAID 1 or RAID 0 and make it work just like any other two-bay Thunderbolt device, such as the G-RAID that came out last year.

The G-Dock Ev offered very good performance in my testing, enough to justify the current price, which fluctuates between $420 to $730 (2TB included). You can also get the 1TB G-Drive Ev by itself for $130. If you're working in an environment where you need to collect or share data between multiple computers and not all of them support Thunderbolt, the G-Dock Ev makes an excellent choice. Those with just Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 should also consider these two, respectively, for their rugged build and fast performance.

Modular design for great flexibility
Announced back in April, the G-Dock Ev is part of G-Technology's Evolution Series of storage devices. This is G-Tech's first approach to the modular design for storage, very similar to Seagate's Universal Storage Module (USM) slot, which works with the Backup Plus portable drive. The G-Dock Ev comes with two G-Drive Ev units included, each being a USB portable storage device by itself. read more...
