    1TB G-Force Quad USB 3.0/2.0, eSATA, FireWire 800/400 External Hard Drive is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Surprisingly noisy but good connectivity Needing a backup drive got eh Mac Mini I bought in the same order, I was pleased to find this drive, with its wealth of connections around back. The new Macs' lack of Firewire ports meant using lots of adapters in my home recording studio. This drive looked like a good way to solve that problem, and it does. Acting as a sort of Firewire hub between various Firewire 400 and 800 devices, I need use only a single Thunderbolt adapter and port to get all of my stuff connected. The only drawback? This drive is quite noisy. Far noisier than any other external or internal drive I've used for many years. It takes me back to a time when I had to throw blankets over my computers to stifle the noise when recording with sensitive microphones. I will soon resort to the multifarious adapters needed to get all of my Firewire stuff connected and this drive will be switched off until those times when I need to back stuff up to it.
