    G-Technology G-DRIVE Mobile reviews

    1TB G-DRIVE USB 3.1 Gen 1 mobile Hard Drive with USB Type-C and USB Type-A Cables (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this External Hard Drive I really like this external hard drive; there are lots of things to like about it. Let’s count them. Great price at B&H, free shipping, and no sales tax. This drive comes with two USB cables, one USB Type A and also a USB Type C. So I can use this with my 5-year-old MacBook Pro. However when I replace the Mac in a few years the drive will be compatible with the newer MacBook Pros with USB type C connectivity, neat! It’s got a sturdy aluminum case. The drive is quiet and remains cool during operation. This drive is already formatted for Mac OS, so that saves three minutes set up. Hey I got one for my wife to backup her brand new MacBook Pro several months ago (she thinks that the drive is an iPod) and I liked the drive so much that I bought this one for me.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor connection I use the USB Type-C cable with my new Macbook Pro. The USB-C constantly disconnects from my laptop without first being ejected, and, in fact, does not even fall out of the port. It apparently has enough "wiggle" room to become disconnected. I am fearful of losing data from a sudden disconnection. I ordered three of these drives and have used all three cables (I thought maybe just one cable was faulty) and the issue has been with all three. The cable works if I sit at my desk and don't move my laptop. However, I frequently edit sitting on the couch and it's a constant problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waiting to see how long it lasts Prior to buying the 1TB G-Technology USB 3.0 Type-C mobile hard drive. I had bought two Western Digital portable 1TB external, USB, 2.0 hard drives. I do not take them out of the house when I leave with the MacBook Pro they were backing up. Both failed, but after a year and out of warranty. So, I decided to switch to G-Technology since I have a 2TB external drive on my iMac 27 which has been running 3 years without failure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and mighty Tiny, fast and works right out of the box with Mac OS High Sierra. A variety of (short) cables included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great USB external hard drive I purchased this drive several weeks ago and it is great. The only problem that I found is that it came formatted for a MAC. I found the following website that explained how to easily reformat the drive for a PC ... running Windows 10. The website is ... https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/format-drive-for-windows-and-mac

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Drive $49 for a G-Technology Drive was a great offer. And it is compatible with USB3.0 and USB3.1 (Type C) with the included cables. Nice to have a product hat works on older and newer Macs. I saw the comment about “dirt” in the box and this is not true. Mine is factory fresh and sealed, no scuffs or dirt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put Bang in You Buck This drive is a deal for the longer term storage solution to a Late 2016 MacBook Pro. �I'm so pleased I ordered another one while the price is advantageous. �I'd already had a silver 1TB 7200 rpm Thunderbolt 3 G-Drive so trusted the brand and format which I'll continue to use for editing storage as it's a wee bit faster and the other 2 5400 rpm drives for the just in case scenario. �They run cool,quiet, and they're super portable. �Couldn't be more pleased with the affordable peace of mind

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy cheap drive, but build is cheap Love the brand, have multiple drives from them prior to buying this little one.� Bought two of these drives and had the same problem on each with the usb port on the drive becoming loose and unstable.� Drives eventually fail to connect.
