    2TB G-DRIVE USB G1 USB 3.0 Hard Drive is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Hard Drive of Choice This is the tenth G-drive I've purchased in the past year. Two are for portable travel for film production, six are part of a large array for backing up audio and video, and one is for Time Machine back ups. Virtually all of these replace a slew of other brand dextral drives that have both aged out, but also are old technology. I chose G-Drive with USB3 to be my primary back-up systems because of their dependability. The newest G-Drive, a 2 TB model, is for a general back up of a brand new MacBook Pro. Having had a few failures of other major brand name external drives, I was extremely selective this go around on who I could trust my data, video and audio to. G-Drive won hands down. TB for TB they are a great value. Not as fan of the ones with Gobbler software though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Happy with my 3rd. G-Technology Drive This is the third G-Technology Drive I've purchased. I use one as a backup drive for my desktop computer, one to back-up my photo collection and I just bought a new one to back up my wife's new iMac. Solid reliable drives that work great with Apple's Time Machine with no formatting required. And I've had no technical problems with the drives since I bought my first one over 3 years ago!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Drive with a couple of drawbacks I've only been using this drive for 2 weeks now and it seems to be working fine. The things that I don't care for are: it's noisy and I don't care for the big flashing G on the front. The price was good for what I needed and it is compatible with Time Machine; other drives I've tried were not, so that's good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works right out of the box The 2TB G-Drive worked with my Mac right out of the box. If boots up quickly and works very quietly.� It runs at 7200 RPM so data from the drive moves quickly to your computer and doesn't delay your work flow.� This is my second G-Drive.� The first one lasted approximately 7 or more years without a problem. It didn't fail, but it was time to purchase a new one before any problems occur.� I expect this drive to last equally as long.� I recommend G-Technology drives for Mac users.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A heavy chunker I did not intend to get this big heavy thing. I wasn't paying enough attention, I guess. If weight is related to function, it will work out.
    Date published: 2017-09-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great Built well and strong, and very straightforward to use. �Using a 3.5 inch drive I would expect a lot of vibration and noise than from other drives, but as a desktop drive with an extremely sturdy enclosure and rubber feet I wouldnt expect it to do it as much as it does. �Don't let it discourage you at all. I use it with a usb-c convertor and works well for everything, definitely going to look into more of these drives and love the stuff that this company makes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, plays well with iMac used for audio Use as a supplement to my digital memory in my Retina iMac.I like that it actually does go sleep. I use it to store my large audio.video & photo data. Current Projects I work off the the internal (fast) Like the Big G that lights up show disk activity. Happy with the drive so far.I will still be getting that Never to Be Released Sonnet Echo thunderbolt dock/hub w/ the DVD burner ( I have to access old client data I need a optical !)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with this Hard Drive. I use this drive as an off-site storage backup of my picture and movie files from my Mac. I have previously purchased a 4TB G-Drive which is my active location for my picture files when my internal hard drive reached capacity. This 2TB (extra) hard drive works perfectly for my desire to back up my primary picture files and store off site for security against theft, fire, flood, etc., and I'm not comfortable with the cloud.
