However, G-Tech's prices are insane... literally 2-3x this price for 8 TB, which I now need with 4K footage. I was looking at the 'guts' of these and, huh, same as G-Tech's -- Hitachi. And, when you edit, you mainly need the 7200 rpm speed, which this has. Those are the two specs I liked from G-Tech... but with these prices so low, I was skeptical.
I have to say, I now own two 8 TBs and they've been rock solid.
The ONLY little thing I don't like, which almost all newer drives have, is the environmental thing where it spins down after a little while and you have to wake it back up. The G-Techs seem like they last a little longer before spinning down... but that's a minor thing. This spins down after about two minutes of not being used, which actually preserves the life of it so it's a good thing.
Anyway, this is amazing and I'm on Amazon today buying a third :)
