I bought 7 of these drives in 2018 to back up video files and two computers. Four of the drives have or are failing where the cable connects to the drive. Another two are now spontaneously not recognized by my MacBook Pro. 6 out of 7 of these drives have failed 6 - 12 months after purchase. I called G-Technology customer support and they were less than no help. If you value your data, stay away from these drives. $1300 down the drain!!!

Not the best

I like the shape and feel of this external hard drive but the cord end that’s connected to the drive itself is weak and poorly made. Within the first week of use it continually kept falling out! Very frustrating... I bought two and both of which have the same issue with the plug port falling out with even the slightest of movement. The constant fear of the cord end falling out is beyond annoying. Do not buy this external hard drive. It will drive you crazy!

Good Drive

I use it as a drive to work on my photos, and/or videos, which saves space on my laptop. I love the quick reading and writing of all my files. Planning on getting a 2nd one

I feel confident that my files will be safe on this drive. Also like that you can remove the cover if you choose for more compact storage

Love this !

I need hard drives for corporate clients who show up with out their own drives and expect to carry the material I shot back home with them. They are moderately priced for a 1TB 7200 RPM drive so I don't mind paying to keep them in inventory. I transfer the data and sell it to the client and never see them again so I have no idea about how long they last but for my purpose they fir the bill.

question

To an Expert familiar with the EV drive system with the G-Tech SATA to Firewire Adapter: Would this offer any advantages as compared to using regular SATA Internal drives and using my Odyssey Q drive dock?I have both Firewire 800 and E-Sata Ports on the dock, and have storage cases for the drives, so is this faster or easier - or more reliable - to make changing my storage workflow worthwhile? If you don't KNOW for sure, please don't give me your opinion.Thanks.
Asked by: Dicran
The drives are going to be fastest through the Sata connection, then USB 3. Firewire is just for legacy systems. It is a much slower connection, 800Mb/s max vs 3 or 6GB/s max depending on your sata.

question

Also, judging by the product photos, it would appear that the USB 3.0 output type on the drive is Micro-B, so I'm assuming one end of the included cable is Micro-B. My question is, what type is the other end?
