G-Tech 500GB, 1TB drives

G-Technology, just absorbed by rival Fabrik, has announced two upcoming external hard drives. The first of these is a new version of the G-RAID mini, raised in capacity from 500GB to 1TB. The Mini is intended to be a portable RAID drive, using a striped (RAID 0) configuration. FireWire 400, 800 and USB 2.0 connections are available; when using FireWire 800, the drive is said to be fast enough to stream multiple video layers in apps such as Final Cut Pro. The drive is further equipped with a fan and heat sink, making is less susceptible to failure. It is Mac and PC compatible, and should ship sometime in March.

Due in the same month is a new G-DRIVE mini. The Triple 500 is claimed to be the first 2.5-inch portable drive capable of holding 500GB, and like the G-RAID, it has FireWire 400, 800 and USB 2.0 ports. It omits a fan, but besting its sibling, the G-DRIVE's USB 2.0 connection is able to supply enough power; only the FireWire options are capable of this on the G-RAID. The Triple 500 is once again Mac and PC compatible.
