Videoguys Top 10 for Grads

Congratulations to the Class of 2016!

We have several members of the Videoguys’ family graduating this year as well and we know that this is an exciting time filled with new opportunities. We are proud to help you get started for your future by continuing to offer student discounts on software now through the end of the year.

If you are graduating, this is your last opportunity to purchase professional video software tools at special student prices.

Student, Teacher and Academic software is all the same as the retail software, but you must provide a current Student or Teacher ID card with your order to qualify for the discounted price. If you place your order online you can upload your student or teacher ID using the file upload capability at checkout, or you can place your order and email the paperwork to [email protected]. You can also always order by phone at 800-323-2325 and discuss the qualifications with our knowledgeable sales staff. We will always help you get the best price we can!

G-Tech Video Storage Solutions - G-DRIVE USB 3.0 4TB and G-DRIVE ev RAW

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! The sweet spot here is the 4TB model at $179.95. What can we say? 4TB of super fast, reliable storage for under 200 bucks is a great deal.

The new Evolution Series storage solutions are designed to offer the flexibility you need to use the drives in any environment. The G-DRIVE ev Raw is a durable, lightweight, and shock-resistant drive with a rubber bumper for added protection to withstand a drop of up to 5 feet.
