  • 1Description

Enclosed in aluminum, the lightweight and portable 500GB G-DRIVE slim USB 3.1 Type-C External SSD from G-Technology allows you to access data quickly and efficiently using solid-state drive technology and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity. This SSD has a storage capacity of 500GB, allowing you to store a variety of files, including movies, photos, music, documents, and more. Using its 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 interface, which is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2, data can be transferred at speeds up to 540 MB/s. While this drive has been built with a reversible USB Type-C connector, meaning that the USB Type-C cable can be inserted either right-side up or upside down, it may also be used on systems with Thunderbolt 3, since USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 utilize the same interface. Additionally, this drive is compatible with USB 3.0 at speeds up to 5 Gb/s and USB 2.0 at speeds up to 480 Mb/s, while the included USB Type-C to Type-A cable allows compatibility with systems equipped with USB Type-A ports.

The G-DRIVE slim comes formatted for Mac, but is also compatible with Windows via a simple reformat. The drive is bus powered through its USB cable, meaning that no other external power sources are required for operation, and its plug-and-play compatibility means that no drivers are required for use. Also included is a USB Type-C cable and protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

    500GB G-DRIVE slim USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C External SSD is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product The G-Drive Slim USB 3.1 Type-C External SSD does not disappoint. It pairs perfectly with my late 2016 MacBook Pro and makes HD editing in the field viable. I like the fact that it comes with 3.0 USB cable as well so I can easily add files from my other workstations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Portable Drive for Latest iMacs & Macbook Pros We purchased 2 of these drives for saving disk images of the configurations of our latest iMac's and Macbook Pro's for our classrooms and digital imaging lab. We've only had them a short time, but they have proven to be more than up to the tasks to which we've put them. They are lightweight, seem well built and the USB-C connection, coupled with the SSD drive provides incredibly fast performance.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poorly made. I needed small, light, fast and hi capacity backup storage for my location shoots. I bought one of these. Mine was the USB 3 1TB. I really liked it until the USB plug connection inside the drive fell off. I did a little research and discovered this has been an issue for these drives for many like me. Too bad it was cheaply made because I really liked it while it worked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Drive I was initially impressed with the simplicity of these pretty little drives.� I bought the 500gb version and wish I bought the 1TB.� A nice feature is that the drive arrives pre-formatted for a Mac.� Another nice feature is that the drive comes with both USB-B and USB-C cables.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Little Drive EVER !!! This is the third one of these drives I've purchased. For speed and dependability, it just can't be beat. I can bring several of these without hassle or added weight to my computer bag when I travel. I wish they made this exact drive with more storage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Light, Convenient for Mac Purchased this for use with Time Machine on an older MacBook Pro. Currently connected via USB 2.0 which is predictably slow, but functional. Hassle-free setup, and I should get better performance when I upgrade my laptop in the near future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for backup Just bought two of these for data backup and boot purposes.� Fast and unobtrusive in size which makes them ideal to be put into safe deposit box on rotation. Can't speak to longevity or reliability at this point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Does everything I hoped it would do. Fast, convent. Plugged it into my MacBook pro and it worked immediately. Nothing else needed to be done. B&H shipping was fast - much appreciated.
