CES: G-Tech targets remote productions with portable storage solutions

G-Technology is at CES this week, showing a line of rugged and portable storage drives designed to keep data safe from water and dust and are resistant to drops.

Compatible with the company’s Evolution Series of external hard drives, the line includes the new G-Drive ev ATC (All Terrain Case) with Thunderbolt, the G-Drive ev ATC with USB 3.0 and the G-Drive ev RaW. G-Tech also introduced Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 all-terrain cases that can be purchased separately to turn the original G-Drive ev, G-Drive ev RaW or G-Drive ev SSD into rugged storage solutions as well.

The new drives are designed to withstand daily wear and tear and even more serious conditions as well, with features like a watertight drive compartment, which floats when dropped in water, and drop-resistance. The new rugged storage solutions come with a three-year limited warranty.

G-Drive ev RaW with Rugged Bumper
The G-Drive ev RaW is a small and lightweight portable hard drive (think backpack, briefcase or purse) able to withstand a 1.5-meter drop, while protecting up to 1TB of data. This external hard drive — 35 percent lighter than the original G-Drive ev — is USB 3.0 bus-powered. The G-Drive ev RaW comes with a USB 3.0 cable and can be used as a standalone device or with the Evolutions Series’ G-Dock ev with Thunderbolt (or the new ev all-terrain case) for ultra-fast transfers and editing. While the drive is formatted for Mac it can easily be reformatted for Windows. The G-Drive ev RaW will be available this month. G-Tech’s suggested retail pricing is 1TB for $129.95 and 500GB for $99.95.

These drives feature the all-terrain ATC case with a tethered Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 cable that protects a high-quality, lightweight removable G-Drive ev RaW USB hard drive. Featuring a watertight drive compartment, the drive can withstand a two-meter drop, so data is protected from pressure, shock, water and dust.

The removable case is compatible with the Evolution Series, so it fits the G-Drive ev or G-Drive ev SSD. G-Tech suggests this solution for in-the-field backup, edit, transfer and storage. The drive’s enclosure features a 7,200 RPM-based external hard drive to maximize transfer speed using Thunderbolt or USB 3.0. This drive can also be reformatted for Windows and will be available this month. Pricing is $229.95 for 1TB. The G-Drive ev ATC with USB 3.0 will be available in February for $179.95 for 1TB.
