    G-Technology G-DRIVE mobile reviews

    2TB G-DRIVE mobile USB 3.1 Gen 1 Hard Drive (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice drive, not the speediest I purchased this drive to use with Carbon Copy Cloner as part of my backup strategy for my MacBook Pro. The drive works very well for that purpose, although it is not particularly fast compared to the smaller SSD that I was using. (That this drive is slower than an SSD is not surprising.) This was an excellent value and a similarly sized SDD would have cost roughly 5-10 times as much, so I am happy to trade speed for cost. I partitioned this drive so that I can clone both my internal SSD and an SD card that I use for storage on the MBP. This is a very nice, compact, portable external drive. (I'd give it 4-1/2 stars if half-star ratings were available.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works, it's small - what more is needed? Frankly as this is really supposed to �be an appliance that just works, there's not much to swoon about beyond the fact it does just that. SO 5 stars for the moment - the only other consideration is longevity - my BuffaloUSB-3 external HDDs (1 and 2TB) have apparently failed on me after maybe a year (and no roughhousing with them, just moving between house and bank vault). So time will tell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and Sturdy Purchased this drive on sale for storage and backup for my MacBook Air. The drive has a cools sleek design in a mat black finish that just looks great on my desk. �The case is metal and feels much more sturdy and durable then my plastic Seagate BackUp Plus. The transfer rate is fast using USB 3.0 and its super quiet. Great price for a good looking solid drive and it came with the amazing B&H fast shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Plug and play for Mac. �Couldn't be easier. �Time machine picks it up and done. �Well worth the investment for a back up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price If I would have known it was a Western Digital I may not have purchased it. I had a WD HD crash with documentary footage from El Salvador footage on it. Left horrible taste in my mouth. B&H tech suggested this to me and it works flawlessly at this point. Small and portable, fast and handy.. so far love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Hard Drive I'm very pleased with G-Technology hard drives which I use for back-up purposes. The 2 TB G-Drive mobile USB 3.0 is performing well. The one I just purchased is being used for photo back-up storage.�I been using an identical drive as a 2nd Time machine back-up and it is performing well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy First Class Although it’s pretty chunky for its size (1/2 inch in height), which is quite different from the think 1 TB drive, this drive is fast, speedy, even with my 2013 Mac Book Pro, and comes with two cables (one for USB 3.0, and another for USB-C). Still small, pocketable, solidly built although heavy. It is not silent, you can hear a slight hum at a two-foot distance.
