G-Technology G-Drive Mobile USB 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
15 February 2014
Conclusion: I've been working on G-Technology solutions for quite a few years now so when i received the G-Drive Mobile USB 1TB USB 3.0 portable hard drive i really expected it to shine with excellent performance results all across the board. However as clearly shown from our charts that is not the case and so the G-Drive Mobile USB had a somewhat hard time keeping up with the other USB 3.0 based solutions we tested in the past in some of the tests.
Pros: - Build Quality (Aluminum Enclosure), - Good Performance, - Size, - MAC OS/Time Machine Compatible, - 3 Years Warranty
Cons: - Price (For Some), - Performance (Compared To Similar PHDs)

Conclusion: G-Technology’s G-Drive mobile is a competent external drive with a longer-than-average warranty. Although it has been updated to offer the faster USB 3 technology, the transfer speeds over this connection were average. There are other drives that are more affordable and offer higher performance, more security, and higher capacity.
Pros: Two FireWire 800 ports, USB 3.0 support, Three-year warranty
Conclusion: The G-Technology G-Drive Mobile is a good choice for the road warrior who needs to Time Machine or transfer data from a pre-2011 Mac to a new one. FireWire plus USB 3.0 will give you the fastest interface on both sides of the upgrade.
Pros: USB 3.0 and FireWire 800. Comes with USB, FireWire 400/800, and FW800 cables. Metal construction. Matches Macs. Dual FireWire 800 ports. 3 Year warranty

Excerpt: (1 items) G-Technology has a reputation for producing high-end, fast Mac-centric hard drives. The company also has a reputation for making similarly designed bulky aluminum drives that are about as aesthetically appealing as cinder blocks. With the G-Drive Mobile USB 500GB, G-Technology is changing its reputation by finally combining a consumer-friendly design with high-end performance.
Conclusion: First ImpressionsG-Technology has been making professional hard drive solutions for the Mac for years and has always backed its drives up with generous warranties. The G Drive mobile comes with a three year warranty, has a different look than that of the mini but still looks better than a lot of the external hard drive solutions for the Mac. Its solid aluminum enclosure is accented with the piano black top, but I still like the look of the G-Drive mini.
Excerpt: G-Technology is now part of the Hitachi group responsible for manufacturing hard disk drives. So G-Technology products feature Hitachi disks on the inside, and some smart and very well constructed cases on the outside.
