      I'm using this drive to backup my iMac 3TB hard drive with Thunderbolt. This is my 3rd G-Drive and they have all operated flawlessly but this is, by far, the fastest that I have owned. Perfect for backing up the photos that I take. My photo files are quite large and I take hundreds when I got out to shoot. Once the photo's are downloaded to my computer, I back them up right away. With this combination of computer and G-Drive, backups are completed in no time at all. This drive is awesome!!!!
      Note: With the drive being iMac ready out of the box, I was up and running in no time at all. Plug and play at it's finest!

      It Works

      I use as temporary storage space for raw files. Nice that it's a thunderbolt interface. It would be nice for it to have the daisy chain t-bolt capability, it only has one port.

        Comments about G-Technology 4TB G-Drive with Thunderbolt:

        I am using this with my iMac. This 4TB Thunderbolt drive was to replace a Firewire 2TB drive. I can't see any lag in the read-write speed. It's as if I just added another internal drive. The old drive will stay connected but will be used for a backup's backup. I do photography with images that are 50MB each so I need the capacity. I have almost 33,000 images right now and that grows by 3,000 each year. I needed a high capacity and fast drive and the G-Drive fills that need.

          Comments about G-Technology 4TB G-Drive with Thunderbolt:

          I'm a photographer running these (one as a working another as a backup) on an iMac. I had previously ran Phantom Drives under recommendation from a friend but switched to G-Technology due to wanting to try out something new and possibly upgrade. I am glad I did. Great speed, not too loud, the front light is a bit bright and it goes to sleep relatively quick and start up takes about 10 seconds? Minus that it's great!

              This is my first G-Tech product and I am VERY impressed.. I use this for putting all my working files to free up the hard disk in the iMac. I also use it for time machine back ups which is great. Think I might purchase the 8tb version soon. What made me hesitate was the comments about the noise, but to be honest it isn't all that noisy and for the price I think its definitely worth it. Fantastic product and the metal finishing matches perfectly with the iMac too.

                      I am using this for my video media to edit off of, and I have a backup of the drive just in case. I feel pretty condident about having my data on it, and copying to it from the old drive was SUPER fast with the Thunderbolt, and editing from it is FAST too. I highly recommend this for dependability and speed, such as video editing. I use FCP X. Only downside is only one thunderbolt port, so no daisychaining.

                            I really like this hard drive. It's quite fast, which is key when using high definition footage. My favorite part about it is the on/off switch so you can control it. I wish it were smaller and had a case, but other than that it's awesome!

                                This drive is super fast with the thunderbolt connection. I've got it running to the Belkin dock into my macbook pro and it's very snappy. I have been using it to work on photos etc via lightroom and the performance is top notch.

                                  These things are fast and reliable. I now own 8 of them, with another 2 about to be ordered.

                                    I use this drive for backup and original footage storage for FCPX on a macBook Pro Retina. It is fast, and the USB3 and Thunderbolt connections provide valuable versatility. FCPX libraries can be quickly moved between drives and computers as needed.

                                    I also use the faster G-Technology 2TB G-Drive Pro 7200 RPM w/Thunderbolt as the primary video library drive for the system.

                                    Cannot daisy chain. Quiet, fast as promised, moderate heat.
