    6TB G-DRIVE with Thunderbolt is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Already working on a replacement... We ordered the drive 2-3 months ago and have only had positive experiences with it until recently. We use this drive as our daily edit drive and when it wouldn't mount yesterday it sent us into a panic. After a few hours, a heaping amount of troubleshooting and a solution that was nothing other than plugging it back in the same way it was plugged in, we immediately transferred everything crucial off. While we haven't attempted to recreate the problem (who would, really) we've requested a replacement from G-Technology. So far their customer service has been sufficient and we expect to receive a replacement unit to transfer everything to before sending the faulty unit back. An unfortunate first experience with G-Tech but we're hopeful that this is a lighting-only-strikes-once kind of experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast but noisy I've been using G-Drives for years now. I recently updated to the new 6TB G-Drive because of the thunderbolt connection. I'm a Mac user and the thunderbolt connection is lighting fast! I use this drive to work with 4K footage and large RAW photo files. This drive is quick enough to support these huge files without any lag or stalls. This drive is a must for my workflow. The drive, however, makes a lot of noise which sounds like it's working too hard or about to break. It may be caused from the outer metal casing, amplifying the noise of the disk and fan inside. I haven't had any actual problems or malfunctions and have been satisfied with my results. This drive came already formatted for my Mac which was very easy to set up and use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding Speed and Capacity I use this Drive for Video Editing and Audio Engineering. I've used it on Thunderbolt and USB3 and have to say It's incredibly fast for a non SSD and 6TB is a massive amount of space for being the exact same size as a 1TB Gdrive I have. It's really an outstanding product. The only downside is that you cannot daisy-chain the drive as it only has one Thunderbolt outlet. It works perfectly well at the tail end of an existing chain of drives though.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from scratchy nose was too much for me I order G-Drive w/thunderbolt as Apple recommend it, and reviewers as well. Think mine was deffective because it sounded like a external 20 years old external drive going bad. The scratchy noise was really disturbing and going on all the time. Apparently it is one of the problem other people notice, scratchy noise. Too much for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think every negative review was simply a lack of knowledge I have several of these G-technology drives. The use of the drives differs based off their primary use. These Single Drive (non-RAID) are like any Spinning Hard Drive, they are going to FAIL at some point. My use of this type of drive is for temporary storage of large files either in the Studio or On The Road. The use of RAID configured (Either RAID 5 or 10) is the only solution for onsite file security. Even in these drives the use of Enterprise or Data Center Drives is highly recommended. Seeking professional advice from B&H or the Drive Manufacture will back what I'm explaining here. RAID 5 & 10 both permit for Single or even dual drive failures (Because it's going to happen, it's a FACT) have Automatic Rebuilding characteristics. They were designed for people like us (We have DATA that Can't be lost). I hope this helps...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast and reliable drive The G-Drive was advertised as the fastest external desktop storage drive on the market, and I now see why. The transfer speeds are incredible. Enormous files transfer in seconds. I'm using it in an office situation where I have to deal with a lot of large photo and video files, so the 6TB storage capacity is ideal for my needs. It's a very simple hook-up, and I especially like that it has the Thunderbolt connection for my iMac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from G-Technology External Hard Drive I am a dance photographer with a massive amount of images. After trying many brands and types of drives, I prefer the G Tech. Drives. They seem to be well built and reliable. So many external drives do not hold up well. It is important to me that I my images are in a safe place and that I don’t have to worry about a drive failure where I lose them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hard drive Not many complaints this far with the G drive. Quality name quality brand quality performance. My only issue is the sounds that it makes sometimes - makes it sound kind of archaic like an old floppy disk or something. My suggestion would be to fix up the inner workings so that it doesn't make those noises anymore. Thanks for the consideration!
