High-Speed RAID for Video Editing Applications
G-SPEED eS RAID solutions provide professional content creators with outstanding performance, high storage capacity and fail-safe operation at an unprecedented low cost per gigabyte. The compact and whisper quiet G-SPEED eS sports a 3Gbit eSATA interface and features four hot-swappable Ultrastar™ enterprise-class 7200 RPM 3Gbit SATA hard drives. When used with the G-Tech RAID controller, a single G-SPEED eS in performance mode (RAID 0) easily supports uncompressed 8-bit,1080/60iHD video capture and playback. Two G-SPEED eS units in fail-safe mode (RAID 5) support 10-bit, 1080i and more! As many as four G-SPEED eS enclosures can be attached to a single workstation to support up to 64TB of storage with speeds in excess of 600MB/second! Storage for multi-stream uncompressed SD and HD production has never been easier or more affordable!
When used with the G-Tech PCIe x4 RAID controller, G-SPEED eS can easily be configured as a RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 or as a JBOD. This flexibility enables the system to be tuned to the required level of performance and fault-tolerance necessary to support your application. G-SPEED eS can also be set up as a software RAID or JBOD when used with third party port multiplier aware eSATA host adapters.
Easy to Setup - Time Machine ready!
G-SPEED eS has a built-in Web GUI that is accessed via any local internet browser. This simple GUI is used to configure and monitor the RAID system. Many aspects of the system are monitored, including power supply voltage, fan RPM and the temperature of the RAID controller & hard drives. In the event of a problem, G-SPEED eS can send an email message to up to four recipients.

- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.

Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
