Correction. The USB-C port does not allow the connection of an external drive, it does not act as a hub. The connection is there to connect to a USB-C gen2 port on a computer that does not have the faster Thunderbolt 3 connections.

Hi. I just bought this drive but I am sending it back because it's too loud. I would disagree with you. I don't think it can be in the room when I'm recording a voice-over. Fan is way too loud and the crackling noise of the drives is audible in the recordings. It kind of reminds me of the old floppy discs.

My new 8TB G-RAID makes an insane amount of electronic noise from both the unit and the power supply. It is a high frequency whining noise that alters in pitch. It is worse when the unit is on (disks spinning) but it also does it to a lesser extent when the disks have spun down. Can you put your ear up to your G-RAID and tell me if yours does the same? Thanks.

Hello, so I received my G raid today and one of the drives went to the red light. I called amazon to send me a new but wanted to know is there a way to rebuild the drives seeing nothing is on them or is it better just to wait for the new ones to come in? Thanks!

Hello, thanks for the video. Question I just bought the one in this video. My question is do I need to set this up in order to create the extra backup in the additional drive in the product or does it come as a default feature where I can just plug into my computer and start saving files? Hope that makes sense. Thanks!!

what do you mean by U to 500 gb / s?  
I have tested it and always get to 350 MB / s?

Thank you + quick comparison to the Lacie BigDock. It's meant to write at 500 gb/s according to the box so the 360 you are recording is significantly lower. Now try and configure it for RAID 1 mirroring, most people I assume would buy it to mirror as that's RAIDs principle selling point. There's no direct information on or in the box how to, the G-Tech forum is confusing and when you do get it to work by finding the correct software (G-RAID with Thunderbolt Configurator, you need to make sure the software is exactly the same as the product, there are different types of G-RAID) there's no way of checking the information is on the second disk. I don't doubt it's a very solid bit of kit but the Lacie Big Dock has much better communication and software (it advertises a lower transfer rate of 440 gbs though and does not feel as solid, I'm not sure which has the higher quality internal drives I'm guessing the G-Drive does). I'm going to continue trying to make this work correctly in RAID 1 but I'm losing hope and thinking of returning it which is a shame because all my drives for the last decade have been G-Drives. NOTE – do not try and check the data is on both drives by removing one, if you do you'll have to reconfigure it using the above-mentioned app, it takes forever.

Hi Dave. I watched your video with interest, but having now bought this machine I came back to check some information.

You say you can''t daisy-chain from the USBC port, and then claim you're looking forward to being able to 'connect a USBC hard drive to make regular back-ups'. This didn't ring true.

As I was writing to you to check what you meant, I saw your PINNED correction below. 22,092 people have seen your video, but I for one rarely look at comments. So with the greatest of respect, a 'pinned correction' lost down the post doesn't really help those who might be confused or – having bought the machine – disappointed. Once it's said, it's said, so if you're going to make these videos, there's a very good case for double-checking facts I would say. And for any new viewers, maybe add a caption to the video or even remove and amend it?

Also, Lenny and Sandi ask if this machine can be configured to RAID 1. You weren't sure. I hope by now they've discovered you certainly can configure to RAID 1 – in fact some would argue it's the main asset of a device such as this – something you don't touch on. Indeed, if you personally want to make regular back-ups having failed with the USBC idea, I would suggest RAID 1 is your best way of doing it – you don't have to plug anything in or do anything at all!

Sorry to leave a negative comment about your professional, well-presented and believable review. But that's the point. It's believable, but some information is untrue and this is the second video about this unit which is very misleading. I do think YouTube reviewers should be 100% sure of facts and take effective ownership of errors once the video is posted.

Best wishes
Simon

What happens if you press the power button while using? Can it cause data loss? or is there a way to turn off the device?

I'm looking to buy a used unit. How can I be certain that I don't get short changed e.g. on the disks which are removable? What kind of disks are originally used in the unit?

I USE THE LACIE 5BIG THUNDERBOLT THERE TO ONE WITH A SWITCH AT THE BACK WHICH YOU GET SPEEDS OF 550MG AND THERE ONE WITH NO SWICH TO TURN IT ON AND OFF THAT GAVES 837MG PER SEC.

I have one of these units, 8TB as RAID 0 its as noisy as hell. Yes it's quiet when the heads are parked (which is rare when it's in use.) In fact on your video i can hear the heads calibrate as the disks spin. A you say, the fan noise is almost silent, it's the drives in the enclosure that chatter like crazy. I've never experienced a drive or RAID this noisy. I've complained to G-Tech but have heard nothing back. I don't think I'm alone on this matter.

I have one of these but it has a USB 3.0 and two thunderbolt inputs. And it's a 20TB one but each hard drive is ten terabytes of hard drive space.

Can you also use a g technology G RAID 4tb version to edit of?
(with final cut pro projects) And how do you do that. Just put the files on the g raid or the actual program itself?
