G-Technology launches new G-DRIVE ev rugged portable storage with all-terrain-cases
Digital storage brand G-Technology has announced a collection of new portable hard drives that are designed to survive in difficult environments. The two available G-DRIVE ev models, equipped with Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 connections, will come housed in what the company calls an ATC – All-Terrain-Case – a package that is said to be able to withstand a 2/6.5 ft drop onto a carpeted concrete floor. The ATC is also water-tight and will float should the drive fall into a river or the sea, and can also be removed to house other drives in the G-Technology Evolution Series.
In addition, the company has announced a lightweight version of the G-Drive ev that comes with a 'Rugged Bumper'. The G-DRIVE ev RaW is 35% lighter than the original G-DRIVE ev, and is shock resistant to 1.2m/3.9 ft even without the bumper and to 1.5m/4.9 ft with it. With the bumper removed the drive can also be fitted into the new ATC, which will be available separately for owners of existing G-DRIVE ev models.
The G-DRIVE ev RaW comes with a USB 3.0 cable, but can be used with Thunderbolt when slotted into the Evolution Series G-DOCK ev, and is priced $129.95/£99.95 for the 1TB version, and $99.95/£79.95 for 500MB.
The G-DRIVE ev ATC with Thunderbolt is available now and costs $229.95/£179.95 for 1TB, while the USB 3.0 version will be available in February at a cost of $179.95/£139.95 for 1TB.
The All-Terrain-Case on its own will be $129.95/£99.95 for the Thunderbolt version and $79.95/£59.95 for the USB 3.0 model when they become available in February.
