G|RAID2 Guaranteed Performance
G-Technology guarantees a minimum performance figure for their drives, rather than a best case scenario. This guarantee is unique in that it is based on real world workflow situations, rather than artificial benchmarks. See the following quotations taken from G-Tech's site:
NOTE: The stream counts above are calculated using a G|RAID2 filled to 80% capacity and incorporate a full seek from the first file to the last file on the drive. This is the MINIMUM GUARANTEED performance from a G|RAID2. Stream counts will be significantly greater on a clean drive. This is real-world performance and not just marketing hype! Remember, we know video.
Why don't you publish benchmark specs (MB/sec) like a lot of other manufacturers?
