Storage
[MUSIC] Hi guys. **** Ngo here and this is not a new Mac Pro. So what is this? Well it's a G-Speed Studio R Thunderbolt 2 RAID Storage System from G-Tech. Now not only does it look like a Mac Pro. It also costs and performs like Mac Pro. That's right. Now [INAUDIBLE] testing this one here, it's actually very fast, offering sustained, real-world speed of close to 500MB per second. And available in 24 terabytes, 16 terabytes, and 12 terabytes, it costs some $3600, $2700, and $2200, respectively. So, let's see what you have for the money. Well, this one here [INAUDIBLE] four into the hard drive, they are very easy to access, just pop open the top right here and you can pull them out one by another. In fact, it's too easy to do that, because there's no way to prevent somebody from doing that just for fun. Now these hard drives here are mushed together into one volume using raid. The G-Speed here support raid 0, raid 5, and raid 10. Now out of the box it supports raid 5 and is ready to be used right away. It also include a tunable cable for you. Now if you want to change the raid set up you have to use a software called the G-speed R Studio utility. The software actually is very easy and nice to be used. You can quickly change from one rate to another and do many other things. Now on the back the GSport have two [UNKNOWN] two ports. It's a [UNKNOWN] but also works with [UNKNOWN] and the two ports mean that it can also connect another [UNKNOWN] device. To the host through it. Now the, this video shared the power status with the host device, and it can wake up from the sleep mode almost instantaneously. That's a big improvement over other [UNKNOWN] systems I've reviewed. There's one odd thing though. This one here makes a very loud beep sound whenever it wakes up or turns on. Let me show you. There you go. That's loud enough to startle me. And I am not very easy to be startled. But there's a button on the back here that supposedly turns off that sound, but it doesn't work. Now, if you're prepared for that and the other minor thing, which is money, this one will make a great accessory for your Mac Pro. For more info, check out my full review at cnet.com. Basically, if you need something super fast and super spacious, or just don't know what to do with your money, this one will make a great investment. Which make it ever better if you get to play with it for free. That's because I'm [UNKNOWN] and this has been the first look at the G-speed studio R from G-tech. Oh, it's you again.
