    8TB G-DRIVE USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C External Hard Drive is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing drive I've owned this drive for about 9 months and using it with Windows 10. When it operates, it makes horrible grinding noises like a dog chewing a rock. It is slow as molasses and it powers down after a while and takes about a minute to come back out of sleep mode. (These is no way to turn off the sleep mode that I can find or research.) I bought it for photos and video but it is so slow in writing and reading (with USB 3.0) that it is only good for archiving/backup. Still, even with that, I am nervous using it because of the terrible sound which it makes. I would have returned it immediately but I let it sit around for a month or two before starting to use it. So, I'm stuck. I definitely would not recommend this drive for any reason whatsoever. I do not own any other drives by the company. ( I own countless WesternDigital,Seagate,Toshiba and other drives over many many years of storage upgrades.) I bought this because of the 8TB. It does come in a nice sturdy and strong aluminum case with a big flashing "G" logo on the front for what that's worth. It has a separate power supply and USB3 cable. It can not be oriented it any other direction except flat as pictured. It has little rubber feet on the bottom and would not balance properly on its side.
