but formatted it as ExFAT on a Mac first so I could switch it easily between OS's

R. Newton, Amazon
26 October 2014
  • Summary: Only had it a month, but so far it's performed flawlessly. Using it on a PC, but formatted it as ExFAT on a Mac first so I could switch it easily between OS's. Using it for video editing of HD 1080 footage in Premiere Pro. Has had no problems delivering multiple video channels.

Doesn't work with Time Machine

ncc, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: I wish I had read the reviews on the Amazon US website before buying this. I bought this specifically for Time Machine and it doesn't work. The problem seems to be with file permissions which change and stop Time Machine writing to the drive (or anything else for that matter).

The drive died 2 days after I got it

Bernard Roth, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: The drive died 2 days after I got it. I had to use DiskWarrior to try and get my data. DiskWarrior reported a "disk malfunction". It looks like all my recovered data is corrupt. I'm guessing they are spanning the data across two drives. They used to make quality product.

Great Hard Drive! This is my 4th G-Drive and have not had a problem with one yet.

Hunter, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: After reading the reports of the mounting problems with this drive I called G-Tech support before getting started with my new drive. The support was great! The support guy I deal with stayed on the phone while I confirmed that my drive wasn't one of the drives that has issues. So here's the scoop.

Great product!

Yogaflex, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: I love the G-Drive series! This is my second one, my first (which I have had for 3 years) has been dropped a few times & ruffed up a little, but it still works strong. So I wanted to get a bigger drive & I cheaped out and got a cheaper model & I paid the price with cheap construction.

Energy Save Feature Cannot Be Overridden...

T. Haggas, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: These drives have a feature where they will go to sleep on their own after a couple minutes. There is no way around this. The command inside OSX System Preferences has no effect on them. As a result, they are horrible drives for video editing.

DO NOT BUY if you will ever plug it into FW 800 - consider a LaCie triple interface drive instead

Tyler Stewart, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: This unit has systemic firmware or hardware interface issues when using the FW800 interface. We constantly get Kernel I/O errors and (-50 errors in the Mac OS Finder) when doing backups in Carbon Copy Cloner or copying files to the drive.
