  • Excerpt: I use and trust G-Drives, and was delighted to see that the 4TB ran as smoothly and quickly as their 1 & 2 TB models. Love it, great media back-up drive.

Great, reliable drive

  • Excerpt: I've been using G-Tech drives for 5+ years and find them to be incredibly reliable and fast. This model finally did away with the external power brick, so kudos to G-Tech. But it is a big drive on my desktop.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Quiet

  • Excerpt: I use the hard drive for editing HD video. I liked that the hard drive was ready to go and came with cables. Best value per terabyte.

Clear Specs/Honest Speed

  • Excerpt: I actually just got this drive so I can't speak on longevity. However, While looking for some backup drives for archiving original video files I decided to give G-Technologies a shot. Construction: The build is solid and I like the look. I saw another poster mention the light on the front under the logo is a little distracting. It is a little bright and could be a little less distracting. Very minor issue though. I also have the Lacie d2 Thunderbolt.
  • Pros: Accurate Specs, Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Solid Build
  • Cons: Distracting Light

Working So Far

  • Excerpt: So far the drive is working well. It is louder then my Seagates, which I typically purchase. I had stopped using G-Tech drives because my last experience was not good. The cases were bent. There was clearly a manufacturing problem as multiple drives rocked back and forth on a known flat surface. I purchased a 3TB USB3/Thunderbolt G-Tech drive at the same time. These are being used as a temporary solution to a problematic RAID setup I have.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use
  • Cons: Noisy

Solid so far

J.A., B&H Photo
2 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I took two of these to India, packed in my checked luggage, to edit video on. No problems, fast enough for basic editing, and haven't had any reliability issuses six months on... one star withheld since you really only know over time. Big plus that so many cables are included. It seems like this drive is really the only way to go right now.

More Speed & Storage, Less Cost

  • Excerpt: Using this as my primary media drive to edit video. Having the Firewire 800 ports is a nice plus so I can more easily transfer some of my older media o this drive without having to connect both drives to my computer.

It works and it stacks

Just Me, B&H Photo
19 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I buy these drives in pairs to back up all my image files twice. They are easy to stack and have been reliable so far. I daisy chain using Firewire 800, I am not that concerned with the speed of the drive as I write once and then create a Media Pro catalog pointing to the first of the pair of drives. I copy the select RAWs to another location before I send it to Lightroom for post.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
  • Cons: Would Like A Short Fw800
