    This is my second G drive and I’m using it as a back up for my first one. Speed is what I was looking for in order to transfer images with in an acceptable time. The build is solid and I feel confident to store my files on it. I would have purchased the thunderbolt version but I felt I can save the money with the usb 3 version as I’m not that demanding right now. Bestbuy had the best price at the time of purchase.

    This external USB was a gift for my son. He takes a lot of pictures, and he can store the pictures in his external drive instead of his computer.

    I had a 4TB but it was a 5400 rpm drive and when I used ir for work, it would have severe lag. This one handles the work without the lag. It has been awesome.

    great drive - would buy again - but expensive. Use these for professional use. G-Drive enclosures use the best chipsets PERIOD. Great backup drives.

    This is the most solid and well built external HHD that I have purchased. Easy setup and excellent performance for an external USB 3.0 hard-drive.

    These work great with Macs! Love how they can be natively formatted so that my Carbonite cloud backup subscription can include their files.
