G-Technology mobile External HDD Reviews

Very easy to backup

By Yosef
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-16

The customer service specialist offered me to buy this along with my computer. In a few minutes I had it all set up and it backs up very easily.

Slow write speed, died quickly

By Peter

Date: 2022-09-14

Don't be fooled by the USB 3.1, the read/write speed is quite low and what's more I filled this drive with footage for an editor and it was dead upon arrival. Better off with WD Elements.

Better than others

Have had a few and this holds up better than the other ones I've had

Great Little Drive

By Anthony
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-05

I bought this a year ago as a redundant Time Machine backup, and I'm still amazed that it is able to run without a power plug, or any visible vents. It's so small! It's a quarter the size of my other older external drives.

No Complaints

No complaints. Wish it was faster but that would cost more $$$ for other options.

BUY IT IF YOU ONLY NEED IT TO WORK FOR A YEAR

By David
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-01

I wasted my money in this piece of crap that last just over a year. I will never purchase anything from G-Technology, I used this thing once a month and it rarely got moved around yet it failed. Stay away from this outdated tech.

1 Week Used - It Works So Far

By Karen
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-19

I've had my external drive for 1 week. It set up quite easily. It's been backing up my MacBook Pro and my iPad and my iPhone as expected. BH Photo asked me for a review after only 1 week. This is as accurate as I can be right now.

Reliable, inexpensive storage

I buy these in pairs as archive drives for photos. I've been very happy with all of my G-Technology drives.
