Performance mode means twice the available space and faster operation, while Safe mode only gives you access to one drive, as it creates a backup of all data on the second drive for safety. G-Tech have retained the usual 'Quad' of connection options with this drive including 3Gbit eSATA, Firewire 800, Firewire 400, and USB 2.0. An AC adapter is included for instances where laptop or USB power is not enough. The G-RAID mini2 SSD is made from lightweight aluminum, which not only compliments the look of Mac G5 computers but acts as a heat sink as well. There is an internal cooling fan as well which is necessary since there are two drives. Being a solid state drive, there are no moving parts or magnetic disks but rather a series of chips. This has improved shock resistance and overall speed dramatically and is quickly becoming more popular especially with mobile computers. As of now, unfortunately, solid state drives are quite expensive and still only available to those who can afford it.
