    Great Portable Hard Drive

    This portable hard drive has worked smoothly for storing my photos and giving me more storage on my computer. The only down side is that when you transfer photos from a MAC to this device the files loose their name and convert to file numbers. I'm not sure if this is due to the hard drive or the MAC, but this has been a pain when trying to locate a particular photo later.

    Bought this as an external hard drive for Time Machine back-ups. Already formatted for Mac, so it was just "plug and use" with Time Machine set-up. Very easy. USB-C connection was very snug. First time I plugged it in to MacBook Pro, almost felt like I had to force it. "Space Gray" color is slightly off (lighter), but that is being picky. A small carrying case/pouch for travel would make this 5 stars.

    I got this to extend the storage capacity of everyone in my house. I connected it to a new router and it runs fine. I've partitioned it so that both Windows and OS users can store around 500 GB on it. It's behaving well. I've personally backed up around 20 GB of work files now. This product lost a star because the default format didn't support storing files over 4GB in size. Reformatting fixed the issue.

    The drive has been very reliable, size and price for the amount of memory are good. Only odd thing is that when using it on a Mac you get two volumes mounting, one of which is has preinstalled software (somewhat unnecessary), the other your actual storage. A little annoying but not a real problem.

    G Drives are fast, look good, and well built. Latest USB 3.1 standard. However, still have to go back and find out why a Time Machine Backup of my old system kept failing at the final verification. Was successful on my WD Passport.

    Very high build quality. Comes with cables. Operation is fast. Not exactly cheapest ad I wish it comes as 2TB but this is good for my daughter to use as working drive for video editing.

    I bought this to back up my Mac using Time Machine. It did the job. Sometimes it can be very slow transferring data though.
