Excerpt: I needed a drive to backup my files on my family's computer, and wanted something that would be small and out of the way since the office area is rather small. This hard drive fit the bill perfectly. So far I haven't had any issues. It comes with a little carry case which in my case is good for when I have to store it somewhere so it doesn't get too dusty. That said if I wanted to take it somewhere it would fit perfectly in my purse.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Portable, Quiet
Excerpt: These drives are a filmmaker's best friend. I take the on location all the time to download my footage files. They're easy to travel with, fast and super reliable. Never lost a file and they don't crash. Just bought my 8th mini!
Excerpt: I use the 500GB drive to backup my Mac using Carbon Copy Cloner. I love G-Tech mini drives. I have several 320GB drives and use them to backup my images. These drives are small so you can stash them on-site or off-site. I just hope G-Tech continues to make these drives with FW800 ports. FYI - the 320 & 500GB drives fit perfectly in a Pelican 1020 case.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet
Excerpt: Every manufacuter's external 2 1/2" dirve uses the same size drive inside, but the cases are different. This all metal enclosure is about as compact as it can get while still inlcuding a heat sink on the bottom. OWC's standard plastic enclosure is larger in all three dimensions. G-Drive Mobile is the same width and depth, but thinner and lacks an on/off switch. Nice fitted case too.
