    4TB G-DRIVE with Thunderbolt is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Fast 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product, but... I own several of these. All are humming along nicely. However, the last one I bought was DOA. The drive wouldn't spin up and, was in fact, singing the clicking song of death when first plugged in. Actually that is not such a bad thing. My experience with these drive is, if they boot up when you first get them (as 99% of them do) then they will last for a long, long, long time. Otherwise they will die as soon as you plug them in the first time, saving you the headache of losing your data a year or two down the road. With B&H Return Policy being so easy, purchasing these drives is a no brainer

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great external drive As most avid photographers I have found myself short of storage space on my internal hard drive and needed the expansion room provided by an external hard drive. In addition because I use a Mac I wanted the set up to be easy and fast. The G-drive met this need and I was up and running in minutes. I purchased both a 6TB G-drive and a 4TB G-drive. I moved all of my LR images to the 4TB and back up that drive as well as the Mac's internal drive to the 6TB drive. So far it has been flawless. I would have given it 5 stars but I have the units less than a month so I can't comment on longevity.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from If your Mac has Thunderbolt 3 ports, don't buy this I purchased this drive not paying attention to the fact that Thunderbolt has different generations and that this drive is actually �older Thunderbolt 1 technology while the iMac which I bought last summer has Thunderbolt 3 ports. So, I'm having to drop $50+ to get an adapter cable from Apple to make the slower external drive talk to my newer/faster machine. I didn't realize it until it was too late to return the drive. Be smarter than me, buy the newer/faster technology.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Drive!!! 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!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced for needless Thunderbolt My boss's G Drive just failed, and it got me curious about why these things are so expensive. So I tested the read/write speed of this drive against other spinning USB3 external drives that are a fraction of the price, and to my surprise cheaper drives had up to 80% faster read, and 100% faster write speeds! Furthermore, when testing the G Drive Thunderbolt vs USB3 connection, there was NO DIFFERENCE in read/write speed. In conclusion, these drives are shamefully overpriced for the Thunderbolt connection, which offers no benefit unless you don't have USB 3 ports.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from drive failed this drive failed on me after just over 7 months of use. It was very lightly used only in the studio and had roughly 3TB data (video) mostly. It will not mount and G-Technology does not support any data recovery. But you can't open it to recover without voiding the warranty. Beware this enclosure.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from My soul weeps I ordered this item in September. I entrusted my entire music catalog onto its aluminum encased disk. It freed my iMac from the heavy burden of so much entertainment. I was confident that it would serve me until the time came to afford another large drive to which to back it up onto. But no... Two days ago I decided to turn it off since I was not going to be using it for a few days. Today, the day I decide to awaken it to enjoy its contents, it would not power on. Nothing. No life. I tried a different power outlet, still no response. Now it looks like I have to pay one of G Technology's little buddies to try to recover any possible data, then send it back for a replacement. FOUR MONTHS? Really? I am honestly extremely upset at this.
