    I purchased two of these drives. They ship pre-formatted for Mac. It was very easy to re-format the drives for windows. These are fast portable and very reliable drives. They handle a large volume of throughput for heavy lifting of videos over 100gigs.

    Look at the SanDisk website to get instructions for how to format this drive for Windows or Mac -- it takes a little doing to make it work the first time. The instructions, however, are straightforward and do the job.

    Needed to update my external storage for my new MacBook and this has been working great for storage and backups. Definitely not SSD quick but fast enough for what’s needed. I have yet to work off of it directly so no comment on that yet. Will update if there are any issues but happy with the G Drive.

    G-Drives are bullet proof

    I have used G-Drives for many years. They have been bullet-proof. While other external drives have gone bad for me, G-Drives never have. So when I wanted a backup for my new MacBook, I chose G-Drive. The only negative is that it is a bit larger than I expected. It isn't as mobile as I wanted. However, data safety is far more important than size.

    Unit was just a little larger and heavier than expected. Will use mostly in the office, would recommend the smaller sandick for traveling.
