      Great Drive

      Posted

      I have recently bought a new 27 Inch iMac, i was using mac version WD Fire wire drive for almost 8 years on old iMac, it had saved me many times restoring data, now it is time to get a new drive for time machine backup, i have never used this brand before, it has good reputation for faster drive as i read online. i paid almost double the price as compared to similar size drive by Seagate and WD. quality and construction wise this looks top notch. my old WD book edition was also very nice looking with LCD display so keeping in tridition i picks nice looking and fast BU drive. I did first Time machine backup, 400 GB took aprox an hour, it was slow at first showing 4 hours to complete BU, but competed in an hour. i am using USB C port on iMac, it comes with usb to USB-A cable also, so it can be used on other macs also. time will tell how long it last.

      I’ve been wanting one of these for a few years. Was using a WD MyBook for external drive but didn’t liked the build quality, noise or speed. Never really trusted it, though it never let me down. Just didn’t give me that warm fuzzy feeling. Well after my 10 yr old Dell died it was time for a new desktop. I bought this 4TB drive a week later for photo storage and system backups. So far I’ve been very pleased. It’s faster, sounds better ( more professional if that makes sense or means anything ) and looks better to me. At first the light on the front was a little annoying at night but it’s easy enough to cover. Hopefully I’ll feel the same way about it in a few years. Time will tell. All I know is the warm fuzzy feeling is back and I’m diggin it.

      I am very tech savy, this model is mac compatible, 3.0 and the drive comes with its own power source and fan. This is huge as it does not drain my own battery, fast transfer of data, and I don't have to worry about the driver getting too hot. I constantly transfer around 8G.B of data at a time and it takes a couple of minutes max. I make and edit videos and this external drive is awesome. I didn't get the thunderbolt model because that's pointless because everyone has usb, and not everyone has a thunderbolt slot. Great so far, and haven't had a problem, it has a power button feature as well that I like and very mac friendly, no software needed to use, plug and play as i would call it.

      This is the first G Drive I have ever bought. My work uses this brand to edit video and audio from which led me to buy this one for my computer. I'm not super fond of the USB-C cable it came with so I switched it with a different one that seems to stay in better. The transfer speeds are awesome and super easy to edit video with. It doesn't power a computer though which is fine. I love it and it is definitely the first of many.

      Working Great So Far

      I bought this drive to replace a faulty Western Digital 3TB My Book, which I just didn't like. I am using it to store about 50,000 photos and 750 videos which my 500MB internal drive could not handle. Since I bought it, I have been rebuilding my entire Lightroom catalog, so it has been working very hard. The drive is practically silent; if it weren't for the blinking blue "G", I wouldn't be able to tell it's working. That is a good thing. Only time will tell, if it holds up.

      Love this this great product. I've been needing this SOOOO badly. I do a lot of pictures, videos, and music for local Rock & Metal scene is SoCal. This product has been able to store a lot of material on it, while freeing up tons of space on my computer. If you need a lot storage for your work, hobbies, music, etc; get this product. You'll be thankful you did.

      Got this to backup my gaming machine and so far it works perfectly. I was able to backup my C and D drive as well as create a image of my PC. Also, the speed on the box of 150 mbps is true, I got really close to that. It took just under an hour to backup both drives and create a system image. It is also Thuderbolt 3 compatible if I ever want to go that route.

      This is my second G-drive. I use the first to store music projects I mix and master go local bands. I use this G-drive for storing drone and cellphone videos which I also mix into short clips. I would buy a third without reservation if I needed one. It is an excellent storage device to free up computer memory for other uses.
