A new range of rugged hard drives from G-Technology will be on show at BVE, promising to keep your data safe.
The G-DRIVE ev RaW with Rugged Bumper and the G-DRIVE ev ATC with Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 can not only take a good beating and can be dropped but, in the case of the ev ATC, can even float.
The G-DRIVE ev ATC drive comes in a watertight, bouyant case that can be dropped from 2m. It keeps the drive protected from dust and is also able to float, presumably to prevent mishaps should you be editing on the beach or by a pool.
Compatible with both Mac and Windows, the drive is available with 1TB capacity and with either a high speed Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 connection with data transfer rates of 136Mbps thanks to a 7,200rpm drive. Prices are £179.95 for the 1TB Thunderbolt drive or £139.95 for the 1TB USB 3.0 drive.
The ATC case is also available as a standalone product for those who already have a G-DRIVE ev. The ev ATC with Thunderbolt case costs £99.95 and the ev ATC with USB 3.0 case costs £59.95.
The USB3.0 G-DRIVE ev RaW is available in 1TB or 500GB 7200rpm drive configurations, sporting a removable rugged bumper which is drop proof from 1.5m.
G-Technology claims the unit is extremely portable, being 35 per cent lighter than the original G-DRIVE ev. The drive costs £99.95 for 1TB drive and £79.95 for 500GB.
Compatible with both Mac and Windows, all drives offer a three-year warranty, which G-Technology claims is longer than any other hard drive manufacturer
