    Works but connection is loose

    • Written by from Mill Valley

    I noticed in some earlier reviews comments about the USB connection to the drive not fitting tightly. But I have had good experience with G-Tech so I purchased based on specs and price. I use it for my Time Machine backups on my laptop. So far it has worked properly. But the loose connection is something of a distraction and inconsistent with the high quality I have associated with G-Tech. So far so good, but if I were buying a similar drive again I might pick something different.

    Does its job but.......

    • Written by from Cayucos

    Bought 2 for ranch iMacs. Plugged in and it seems to do the job right away so 5 stars there. It was the complete opposite of Western Digital where you have an onslaught of vague instructions and then have a blast with all the glitches. And I mean ALL the glitches ALL the time. Even following their instructions doesn't change what is suppose to change. Anyway, the problem here is the LACK of instructions. Had to call customer service and I knew more about their website and available downloads/info for device than he did (nice fellow though). But there was a whole lot more to this conversation with him than what I am going to write. It was ludicrous. And that was just trying to find out how to password protect this in case of theft. It went downhill from there on any topic you can think of - I mean you had to be there to hear it! Horrible software interface and customer support (but again nice guy probably new). All that gets a negative one star. So I figured 3 stars was fair overall. Maybe I can stumble on the answers later myself.

    Bad Connection

    • Written by from Evanston

    I'm disappointed in this drive's connection. The USB 3.0 cable doesn't lock into the drive very well. I use it on a laptop, and just moving it (the drive or the laptop) a little will disconnect the drive. Buyer beware.
