    G-Technology 0G03674 reviews

    6TB G-DRIVE USB G1 USB 3.0 Hard Drive is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use only G-Drives How do you format and configure your G-Drives to your Mac? You attach the supplied cable to your Mac, plug the supplied power unit into your electrical outlet, turn on the G-Drive - and within seconds see the drive mounted on your desktop. Done. Rename the drive if you want. Over the last decade not one of my G-Drives has failed me, whether connected to my laptop, desktop or iMac. (Others have.) I'm currently on 10.11.6 and earlier, and use only 7200 rpm drives. I've been in video production, web design and photography for 30+ years, have 7 G-Drives on my desk at the moment, and do not even consider using other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than the LaCie D2 drives I was replacing! I had never been in the market for new drives until recently. With a rash of drive troubles with old and then two new LaCie drives, and after dealing with LaCie's inept support department, I chose to find another direction. The G-Technology drives were highly recommended, larger for the money, and came with a lot of good recommendations. Now as long as Segate doesn't buy the company and screw up the support group like they did with LaCie. Looking forward to using these drives for years to come.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Questionable Quality I bought one and after almost exactly 1 year it started causing a blue screen. I contacted support, they said to update chipset, which I did. Still caused blue screen, plugged into another computer and caused it to blue screen too. So tech said it was probably a bad drive and to return it for a replacement under warranty. Of course, if I wanted to recover the data I had to send it to a data recovery company. They quoted $ to $ to try and recover the data. So I thought I'd hang onto the defective drive and if something critical came up then I could pay to get the data recovered. But if I don't return the defective drive they won't give me a replacment. I've owned about 25 external drives and this is the only one I've ever had go bad. I paid top dollar so all my images would be safe. In retrospect I think I threw away a lot of money paying for the fancy aluminum case. I'd recommend you buy something else. I'm replacing this with a much cheaper brand, of which I have about 10 that have never failed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Apple Mac OS X Time Machine Backups I only have a few hours of actual use on this item but feel qualified to rate as I have 40 years of computer experience. The drive is relatively quiet upon power on use. It is fast for disk write times and even faster on disk read times. The drive seems to be manufactured by Hitachi and repurposed by G-Drive. I read many reviews on drive prior to purchase and most were very positive. I do not leave it powered on at all times, only utilize for time machine backups 4TB and file transfer 2 TB from my old Windows PC to my new MacBook Pro. Hopefully this drive will last a lot longer then my previously purchased LaCie drives.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked pretty well until recently I bought a G-Drive because it's a technology that I've worked with in the past and has performed reliably. I received mine in September of last year, and all was well until about a month ago when the drive began to get loud and make noises even when not writing or reading, as if something were stopping the disk from spinning before starting back up again. It hasn't crashed or anything, but I'm honestly not expecting it to perform as it was intended and so I've backed up all of my photos onto my cheap little WD Passport. Not sure if I received a bad copy, but I will be contacting the manufacturer to have this one replaced.
    Date published: 2018-06-30
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Started kicking out errors. After another GTECH died. I know longer trust G-Tech as a brand. Previous drive died within a year and this one suddenly started getting loud and started kicking out errors. Plugged in caused both Resolve and Premiere to crash on occasion due to errors. Will spend my money elsewhere.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed It can get a bit noisy. And I'm not very impressed by the transfer speed.
    Date published: 2016-11-28
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it was intended to do I needed an option to back up my computer and external hard drives. It does the job and does incremental backups, however, I was under the impression that it would come with a cord to allow me to daisy chain it and not have to go the USB route. That wasn't an option and made me wish I had gone thunderbolt, but I didn't. The initial backup took in excess of 24 hours. It seems stores don't carry a wire to daisy chain. Incremental backups are okay, speed wise.
