INTRO - HOW WE MET....
I used this item at my work place and at home, transferring high definition video clips and jpegs to it for storage!
WHAT THE HECK IS IT?
This G-raid is a handy storage device - it comes with all the cables yolu could possibly need to use it - Firewires, USBs and a variety of other connectors (Those are the 2 I specially used the most, but there were others - I guess check the spec before you buy if you need something different)
MY EXPERIENCE AND THE GOODS/BADS
I just want to clarify that I'm writing this review as a 'civvie' - ie, not a complete technophobe, but someone who knows how to use devices like this for their own needs but there the knowledge stops. So it won't be technical so much as just my personal experience with using it. Now that's out of the way....
This was a great device to use! First off in very practical terms, It's nice and compact, which makes it very easy to move around. I used it on 2 different a PC laptops, and quite often would have to travel with it to various locations. It was lightweight and nicely discreet. An added bonus is that its quite tough so can take a little bit of knocking around (I wouldn't push it though!)
It had a great file capacity and once set up to any computer was dead easy to use. I would transfer files to be stored temporarily on it while they were being backed up elsewhere, and then delete them when they were no longer needed, and it allowed me to do this with ease. It's also dead easy to format like a normal plug in drive or storage device.
OVERALL - IS IT WORTH IT?
I'd definitely recommend this product. Easy to use for file storage, editing and transferring. A good size memory (though remember to check it's the right size for you ;)! )
