if one, you value the look of your external hard drive as much as its performance, and two, works heavily on 2K or 4K video editing, then you will love the G-Technology G-DRIVE PRO with Thunderbolt as much as us we do. in fact, we are drooling over it at thousands of miles away. freshly announced at the National Association of Broadcasters 2013 (aka 2013 NAB Show, April 6-11), this sleek metal-clad external hard drive offers both portability and speed that today’s creative professionals demands, giving them SSD-like performance without being limited by capacity or slapped with astronomical price tags. it marries a single 3.5-inch hard drive with the blazing fast Thunderbolt technology to offer sustained data transfer rates of up to 480MB/s, while still giving you high capacity storage of up to 4TB – a capacity that SSD drive can only dream of, and even if there is such a massive space available, its price would certainly be out-of-this-world. it comes with dual Thunderbolt ports for external storage expansion and to daisy chain with other Thunderbolt-equipped devices, and it is, of course, Mac-formatted and Apple Time Machine ready. for those mucking around with high resolution videos, you will be glad to know that this shiny baby easily supports compressed 4K and multiple streams of 2K, HDV, DVCPro HD, XDCAM HD, ProRes 4444 as well as uncompressed SD workflows. the G-Technology G-DRIVE PRO with Thunderbolt will be available this summer for $699.95 and $849.95 for the 2TB and 4TB model, respectively.
