          Comments about G-Technology 1TB G-Drive Mobile Hard Drive:

          I use these to transfer raw files from CF & SD cards from Nikon cameras, and raw video from Red SSDs. They are a good capacity, and with both firewire 800 and USB 3 ports, they are prefect for my Mac world.

          They are not the fastest drives in the universe, but they are fast enough to do the job. I usually shoot between 500GB and 1TB in a shoot day, and these write at a speed that makes that manageable.

          As for reliable: I have NEVER lost any data or had any files corrupted on these. I can't say the same for some cheaper, USB3-only drives I've tried.

            I use this as an office HD for editing videos. This is my third hard drive by G-Technology and so far it has been reliable, fast and sturdy. It does tend to heat up but I think that's normal with most hard drives.

              Bought two of these babies as primary and backup drives for video/audio files of a promo trailer shot over two days. Quick and easy interface for two different camera packages (Red-Scarlet, and a 7D) and our sound guy. Lightweight, slim.

                    I use this drive for on the go editing, Weddings (SDE), and using it daily (iTunes, Movies, & Docs) - I really enjoy the quietness of the SSD and the speed of the drive. I RECOMMEND A CASE (Logitec)!

                    There's no need for any negativity towards the product unless you don't take care of it or somewhat.

                          G-Drives are the best external drives I've used and this one is no different. Very compact, USB-3 and FireWire 800 and fast.

                          I love this drive so far! I needed FireWire 800 because transferring shoots from my D800 onto my old USB 2.0 drive felt like it took years. However, this drive (being all metal) does seem to get quite warm. I'm happy to have FW800, but it doesn't work well with my MacBok as the port connection is very delicate and a slight disturbance and break the communication between the machine and the drive. This isn't an issue on my desktop drive, and being able to daisychain with my archive drive is a real space saver behind my iMac. Once I upgrade to a MacBook with USB 3.0 the FW800 delicateness won't be an issue.

                            I have a 2010 MacBook Pro, whose life I prolonged by replacing its optical drive with an SSD. Therefore, I probably won't have a Thunderbolt port for another year or more.

                            Being able to use Firewire 800 is great, and my next laptop will have USB 3.0, so I'm all good there, too.

                                  Works well -- No problems. Seems to be much faster than the Lacie Rugged field drives.
