G-Technology G RAID Mini 2TB External Storage Review

Tweaktown by Tyler Bernath

G-Technology offers ample storage performance and capacity to boot with the G RAID mini.

The G Technology G-RAID Mini is a portable storage solution designed for users of Mac OS, that want all of the elegance, and professional storage appeal along with a bit of performance. Backed by HGST, G-Technology has for quite some time, been creating top tier storage solutions for creative professionals. The G RAID Mini carries on this tradition with its pure aluminium construction.

The G RAID Mini we have in the lab today continues on where the G Drive left off. Offering 2TB of storage capacity with the ability to configure it in RAID 0, for maximum performance or RAID 1, for an added bit of security. The G RAID Mini arrives from the factory ready for your Macintosh computer, formatted with the Journaled file system. However, a simple reformat allows you to access the G RAID from your Windows PC. Warranty included with the G RAID stands at three years.

The G RAID was packaged and factory formatted with the Mac OS Journaled file system. After a quick formatting to the NTFS file system, we are left with 1.81TB of usable space.

RAID 0 testing started with us running the G RAID through ATTO. Here the enclosure peaked at 265MB/s read, followed by 261MB/s write. read more...
