    Bought this drive to deliver raw ftg compression to my client. Knew it will likely be sitting in a draw for years so I wanted to deliver the best drive I could.

      It works as advertised. My Mac was filling up with my iPhoto Library so I copied the Library to the G-Drive and then deleted it on my Mac. Now have plenty of room left on my Mac. I'm amazed how easy it was.

          I'm happy with this hard drive. I'm using my to store my Lightroom master catalog. The faster disk speed and USB 3.0 interface offer good read/write speeds short of going with a SSD option.

                A good drive

                Comments about G-Technology 1TB G-DRIVE mobile USB Portable Hard Drive (7200 RPM):

                So far I have had good experience with this drive. My one drawback pertains more to my computer which only has USB 2. Because of that, I really need the model w FireWire capability for video work. This is still good for backing up.

                    Although I've had problems with g-tech drives in the past, this one has, so far, been great. The only thing that really separates this drive from others in its class is that the metal enclosure has a slightly rough patina which keeps it from slipping, or even moving, on most surfaces. I think that's my favorite feature of the drive.

                          The added capacity for the 256 GB MacBook Air is great and it is fast. I'm not an expert on external hard drives but the transfer of a large amount of files large and small doesn't make you wish that you hadn't started the transfer.

                            I use this hard drive when I'm on the go with my laptop and when I shoot tethered, on location, with my laptop. It's simple to put the files on my iMac once I get home. I love this little hard drive. It's also easy to carry. I just wish it came with a carrying case.

                              Comments about G-Technology 1TB G-DRIVE mobile USB Portable Hard Drive (7200 RPM):

                              Other portable drives offer USB3 but at 5400 RPM, so the theoretical transfer rate of the USB interface exceeds the drive's ability to read that data. This 7200 RPM drive is a better fit in terms of improving performance, which has proven useful for high res image scanning.

                                I do a lot of artwork in Photoshop and need to make sure I don't lose any of my precious files. G-Drive makes the best storage devices, reliable, easy to use, and to store. I always feel confident that with G-Drive I'll have access to my artwork when I need it.

                                    Amazing form-factor, reliable performance, and proven over a good period of time. This is my second purchase of this item. The first one I purchased a couple years ago, and it's working great as a Time Machine Backup via my Airport Extreme.

                                    This one is being used as a media drive to shuttle things back and forth between an assistant editor. Works great and the USB3 gives a nice boost of performance--over 100MB/s in Read & Write speeds.

                                      This drives transfers very quickly, small enough to take with you and the brand has never given me any crashing issues. You can never go wrong with G-drive.
