    500GB G-DRIVE slim 7200 rpm Portable USB 3.1 Gen 1 Drive is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need Mac to format to exFAT If you're buying this product to use on a PC then you'll to have to find a Mac computer first to format to exFAT to use for both PC and Mac. It would not open on a Windows 10 PC out of the box. Luckily wife has a MacPro to help out. Silly of BH not to advise before hand that a Mac is needed to format. Still love you baby. Good looking fast 3.0 spinner at 7200 rpms. Bought 3 at the daily specials. Thanks!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not As Described! This item is only compatible with Mac and not Windows. It was advertised as compatible with both. It won't work on Windows but could be reformatted for Windows (which I am unable to do). The item is useless for me, as I don't own a Mac!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great form factor, speedy drive Fast USB3 and the 7200 RPM drive speed combine to make this a good drive for handing off video files. The slim size makes for easy transport in carry-on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great deal at this price! Very fast. Works nicely with my USB hub. I use it both for backup and extra storage. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that, although it only took a few moments it came formated for Apple and I had to reformat the drive for Windows. Not a problem, but this should have been noted in BH advertisement.I purchase a second one for my wife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for field back-ups Fits the need for fast data transfer while in the field. We work a lot of small productions, where time matters, locations frequently don't have electricity and there's no budget for a lot of PAs. Under those conditions, a hardy, small USB 3.0 drive coupled with our MacBook allows us to make fast & reliable backups from the camera and/or SDHD cards -- and fast data transfers into the main hard drives back at the base. We've been using the G-Drive brand for years with no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, low price I use the 500GB G-Drive slim with Time Capsule. I was able to hook it up and use it right out of the box... no need to configure it for use with a Mac. So far it has worked reliably and I love the small, flat, lightweight design. I can take it with me wherever I go and it takes up no more space than my laptop charger. I was looking for a high quality device for a low price, and I got exactly what I was looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drive - fast, inexpensive, tiny Great little drive, ultra portable, very fast. A good value at its normal price, but even better on the recent DealZone offer. At that price, I've paid more for thumb drives than for this one. I bought three - one to deliver hours of digitized old family videos to a relative for archiving, and the other two for extra backups and shuttling large video projects around. The USB3 speed makes this a pleasure to use.
