This is a no fuss no muss portable RAID. I have the 500GB 7200rpm and connect it via FW800 or eSATA to my 17" MacBook Pro. Basically, it does what it says it does and it does it very well. Don't expect many bells and whistles on it though. It can operate in RAID 0 or 1 (I keep it in RAID 1) and it does get bus power over FireWire but beyond that, that's about it. The drives are not replaceable, there is no LCD status indicator, no interactive GUI, just the single blinking LED which can change from white to red in the event of failure. Speed is decent and for DVCProHD and even some ProRes or Cineform, it does its job very well. Just don't expect multi layer HD with effects at real time performance. My bottom line though is that if you need a drive that will give you the peace of mind that only RAID will offer, with a killer warranty from a trusted company, that most importantly, will not break the bank, then this is without a doubt the one to buy. If you mainly work on the go and you are shuttling footage with you everywhere, you NEED this drive. Probable three of them.

failed in less than 24 hrs

By ryno

Comments about HGST 0G02616 G-RAID Mini DAS Array:

The drive failed less than 24 hours after I received it. Tech support offered to replace it with a refurbished unit but I would have to pay to ship the failed drive back to them. Tech support then suggested I contact web sales as they could issue an RMA to cover the shipping. I called web sales and got voicemail. Took about an hour to get a call back. Long story short, I've wasted half a day on this already and I still taken it to ship back yet. Looks like it will take 1 to 3 days to receive the RMA to ship back... Then I'll have to wait up to 3 more days after they receive it to process the money back to my credit card. What a hassle.

Fast but won't last Long

By Lastride08

Comments about HGST 0G02616 G-RAID Mini DAS Array:

I purchased this drive in april and it has already failed in august. The drive did work well while it was working but now i get to go through the fun of trying to send it back for a replacement. Hopefully the new drive will actually last!

Use only in RAID 0

By Integrator

from Undisclosed

Comments about HGST 0G02616 G-RAID Mini DAS Array:

As a fast drive in RAID 0, this system is fine. Since Hitachi treats the G-RAID mini as an integrated system and the drives are not removable by the end user or Hitachi, do not use it in mirrored mode. Any data on it must be backed up to another drive.
