Thunderbolt Video Storage

One of the biggest and best advantages of Thunderbolt is how easy it is to add super high speed storage. While you will pay a premium for Thunderbolt, the ease of use, performance and expandability makes it a top choice for video editing. Thunderbolt is dramatically faster than FireWire800, eSata or even USB3!


G-RAIDs offer you the best price performance/value for your buck. They are configured in a RAID0 for maximum throughput. The downside of RAID0 is that you do not get any redundancy or data protection.

4TB $599.95

8TB $799.95

G-Drive Pro gives you throughputs that are almost as fast as external 4-bay Thunderbolt solutions. You'll get up to 480MB/s, allowing you to transfer files in a fraction of the time a single external thunderbolt drive requires.

We strongly recommend that you populate them only with Enterprise call drives from either Hitachi or Western Digital for best results.
