      Great drive

I bought it to use as my drive to store my Final Cut Pro X event, project and output files. At home I connect it to my Mac Mini, while else where to my MBP 13". This drive, connected via FireWire 800, has worked like a charm.

Nicely designed aluminum case and no need for a power supply, it gets power through the Firewire cable. Also comes with a nice carry case and all the cable configurations you could possibly need. Too soon to tell how long it lasts but all is well so far.

Very fa I currently have no problems with the Gdrive mini. It worked right away and is already formatted for Mac, popped up on my desktop and I was ready to go. Very fast, very sleek little machine. I have not encountered any problems mentioned with this device, but I have not had it very long. I am more than satisfied with my purchase.

      Nice to look at - Terrible Performance

      I spent about twice the price of a comparable 1TB hard drive, because I thought a G-Drive would be more reliable than cheaper hard drives. What I found out is t I spent about twice the price of a comparable 1TB hard drive, because I thought a G-Drive would be more reliable than cheaper hard drives. What I found out is that the G-Drive has a noisy fan, the drive generates an excessive amount of heat, and now has finally FAILED. Thank goodness I had a backup of my data, because the G-Drive obviously cannot be trusted. My advice: Do NOT buy this drive.
