CNET editor Dong Ngo got totally startled by the G-Tech G-Speed Studio R Thunderbolt 2 storage device, but neither by its super fast performance nor by its crazily expensive price. And if that doesn't make you curious enough, then what?
The G-Speed Studio R Thunderbolt 2 is a super fast storage array that supports multiple RAID configuration. The device is available in 12TB, 16TB and 24TB capacities that cost $2200, $2700 and $3600, respectively.
The AirRam doesn't perform well enough or offer enough cleaning options to justify its price.
