Stack of hard drives with blue ones on top

Ever wondered what the “G-” in G-Technology products like the G-DRIVE ev ATC with Thunderbolt, G-DRIVE ev ATC with USB 3.0, and G-DRIVE ev RaW stood for? It might as well be “go” because these drives can flat out go with you. It’s all about the enclosures, and we know that G-Technology uses “ATC” for all terrain case. The enclosed drives also work well in the Evolution Series.

Since the cables are attached to the G-DRIVE ev ATC devices they must be distinguished for USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt. With the cable wrapped around the perimeter of the case, a sealed case can be submerged in a foot of water for 30 seconds, or might simply float. A G-DRIVE ev ATC should be hard to drop with the grip created by the design. The G-DRIVE ev ATC with Thunderbolt is $230 at 1TB, and the G-DRIVE ev ATC with USB 3.0 is $180.


If you already have G-DRIVE ev drives you may save $100 and purchase the cases on their own. The ev ATC with Thunderbolt is $130 and the ev ATC with USB 3.0 is $80.

The G-DRIVE ev RaW is a USB 3.0 1TB drive, with protection sort of like a phone case. It’ll  withstand drops of about 5-feet, and cost $130. The 500GB G-DRIVE ev RaW is $100.
