    G-Technology G-Drive Reviews

    12TB G-DRIVE Thunderbolt 3 External Hard Drive is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hard Drive I purchased this drive to work with a Bootcamp Windows 10 Pro operating system on a Mac Pro. Installation was simple using an Apple converter cable from my Thunderbolt 2 connection to the hard drive's Thunderbolt 3 connection. I also followed the excellent procedure on the G-Technology website to convert the storage to a more compatible FAT 32 format for use with Windows 10 Pro.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've wasted so much time waiting for USB 3 transfers ;-( Purchased two of these 12 TB G-Drives as backups to a couple of laptops used for photo/video/audio processing. Plenty of room for image files for the operating systems and backups for the 4 TB Samsung EVO 860's. Thunderbolt 3 makes these drives very fast - I can't believe I've waited for USB 3.0 file transfers all these years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good...and fast I have this plugged into a MacPro with Thuderbolt 2 and an adapter for the Thunderbolt 3 on the Hard drive. Works fine. Very fast. Its too soon to say anything about longevity but I am hopeful. Satisfied with performance so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm Use this a backup drive for my hard drive array and it works beautifully. I love that I can daisy chain the drive to other drives too.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great for a Mac; stay away if for a PC An excellent external hard drive for Macs.? Plug and play, and lighting fast.? However, this device is dreadful on a PC.? Many negative issues can arise that will affect your workflow, including formatting issues and Windows 10 compatibility nightmares.
