G-Technology Introduces Mobile SSD R-Series Drives

G-Technology has introduced the G-Drive mobile SSD R-Series device, the fastest G-Technology portable SSD with USB-C connectivity and transfer speeds up to 560MB per second.

G-Technology said the new drive is targeted to mobile content creators who shoot video and photographs.

"Larger and more powerful cameras breed larger file sizes and that has brought about an important need for equally large and powerful storage solutions," said Brian Matiash of G-Technology. "I need to know that my drives will not only keep up with the growing demands of my video and photo workflows, but also ensure that they can endure the environmental rigors of wherever my work takes me."

With the G-Drive, users get additional 2TB of capacity beyond what a laptop is limited to with fast file read and write speeds. Featuring transfer speeds up to 560MB/s, the G-Drive will enable editors to quickly save and edit large video, photo and audio files in real time with speeds fast enough to keep up with content.

G-Drives have an International Protection Rating of 67 (IP67) for water and dust resistance and are been tested to withstand up to a 9.8 foot drop on a carpeted concrete floor and 1000 pounds of pressure (crush resistance).

The drive is compact in size and a lightweight, pocket-sized solution that will enable users to keep 4K footage in a safe package. The drive has a five-year limited warranty and is designed to provide high-performance storage for years to come.

Price is $699.95 for 2TB, $379.95 1TB and $199.95 500GB will be available later this year.
