Superb for use with programs like Final Cut Studio, Avid Xpress and Adobe Premiere, the 8TB G-RAID External Dual Hard Drive Array from G-Technology is an external RAID that has the fast throughput and deep storage capacity to handle the rigors of post-production video work. This drive features two 7200 rpm SATA II drives striped together in a hardware RAID 0 configuration with a total of 8 TB of storage. While you can connect the drive to a computer via eSATA, FireWire-800, FireWire-400 (via included adapter cable), or USB 2.0, you can optimize its data transfer speed via the eSATA interface. If connected here, you can transfer data at a rate of over 200 MB/s.

Because the drive boasts exceedingly fast transfer rates, it can play back multiple streams of high-definition video simultaneously, and in formats such as HDV, DVCPro HD, XDCAM HD, ProRes 422 and uncompressed SD. Although, if you would rather use the drive for applications less related to video, it will also perform perfectly for high-resolution imaging, data backup, or general storage applications.

Plus, if you ever decide 8 TB of memory isn't enough, you have the option of scaling up. You can use the G-Tech 4-Port, PCIe x4 eSATA adapter (not included) or another company's adapter to connect more than one 8 TB dual drive to your desktop. You can also connect more than one drive to your laptop or desktop via FireWire daisy-chaining or through a USB 2.0 hub.

The drive is housed in a compact aluminum external casing that features a thermo-regulated smart fan for cooling. While it will look right at home sitting on top of your Mac Pro or Windows workstation, it will more importantly keep your video and your workflow humming along.
