Lightweight at 0.53 lb, the rugged and portable 500GB G-DRIVE ev RaW USB 3.0 Hard Drive with Rugged Bumper from G-Technology is designed for those who require on-the-go access to their personal and/or professional files, photos, videos, music, and more. When the included removable bumper is attached to the drive, it is better protected against falls of up to 4.9′ / 1.5m on a carpeted concrete floor. If the bumper is not being used and the drive sustains a fall, it still receives some protection, but only up to 3.9′ / 1.2m.
This drive is well suited for performing various tasks, such as backing up, editing, transferring, and general storage, as it is equipped with a 500GB capacity and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm. The drive has two built-in interfaces – USB 3.0 and SATA. The USB 3.0 interface is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, provides data transfer speeds of up to 5 Gb/s, and will allow users to connect the drive directly to their desktop or laptop. For those who wish to utilize the drive’s SATA interface, this may only be done using the expandable and hot-swappable storage solution G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt.
