SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD External SSD Reviews

Fast and reliable

So dar (knok on wood) no problems. It works as advertised.

Unbelievably quick

I purchased this for use with a new MacBook Pro and Time Machine. There was no issue. The first iteration of Time Machine for the initial BU of just about 1.15 TB took about an hour, startlingly fast.

Lightroom Editing Live With No Noticeable Lag

Using two SanDisk Pro 2TB G-Drive SSD USB Type-C as an Apple Raid 1 with a new Mac Studio base model. Now all my photos and Lightroom catalog are duplicated as I work. No noticeable lag when editing with Lightroom. Catalog backup is lightning fast compared to my old iMac 2015 Retina Display. Very glad I updated to the Studio and bought these external SSDs. Only negative - for $270 I'd expect Thunderbolt connection rather than USB-C. I'd buy these again.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Fantastic and very compact drive. Really like how tiny this is so you can travel easily with it. Has a large capacity and super simple to get setup. Even had the cords you need to get started easily. Yup

High Performance SSD

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using this 1 TB external hard drive for a few weeks now and have been very pleased with its performance. Files are fast to transfer on and off the drive. The feel of the drive is solid and feels like it has great durability. I would recommend this drive to others in the market of a SSD external hard drive.

This Drive is really fast!! but... so hot!!

I just bought this drive. It is incredibly fast. I edit 4k directly on a macbook pro with no problem. The only downside is that it gets too hot, it almost burns when you touch it. Fingers crossed that it doesn't stop working.

Works fine - had the 1 & 2 TB versions previously

Can I access data from either macOS and Windows 10? Can you clarify "pre-formatted for macOS" vs Windows 10? Which format would be best for that?
Asked by: John
What that means is that when you take the drive out of the box, it will be ready to go for a MacOS. If you wanted to use the drive with a Windows machine, then you would need to reformat the drive for Windows. If you want to move the drive back and forth between Mac and Windows, then you will need to format the drive to ExFAT.
