4) AJA Io 4K I/O Hardware for Thunderbolt 2 - $1,995.00

5) G-Technology G-Drive USB3, 4TB - $189.95
What can I say? 4TB of super fast, reliable storage for under 200 bucks. The G-DRIVE works with PC or Mac and uses 7200RPM Enterprise class drive for the highest level of reliability in the industry. Don't be fooled by other brands that offer similar size drives for under $200. They are not using 7200RPM enterprise class drives and they have nowhere near the reliability or performance of G-Tech G-Drive USB3 drives - which is why only G-Tech offers a 3 year warranty! If you're looking for external RAID solutions we have the complete G-Technology line available for USB 3 and/or Thunderbolt.
