      Stops working after a few back ups

      Bought this as was a USB-C connection for fast time machine back ups After a few back ups disk drive seems to cease to function, and decides to delete all file Bought this as was a USB-C connection for fast time machine back ups After a few back ups disk drive seems to cease to function, and decides to delete all files through my MacBook Pro and crash the MacBook - back to using my old USB seagate drive via an adapter and that works fine like it always did on my previous MacBook Pro. Poor drive and definitely not worth purchasing

      Great for MacBook backup through time machine

      This hard drive is great for backing up and transferring date from one mac to another. I used it with my mid-2014 MacBook Pro to transfer everything to my new This hard drive is great for backing up and transferring date from one mac to another. I used it with my mid-2014 MacBook Pro to transfer everything to my new 2018 MacBook Pro and it went super smoothly. The data did take a while to upload but that is expected since it was over 214 gb(It took around two hours total to back up my new mac onto the drive and transfer it to my new mac.) It comes with a USB connection as well as the updated MacBook Pro connection. I recommend this for anyone because it has a great price, it comes with a ton of storage, and it works perfectly with Time Machine to transfer all information.

      Terrible - Apple warranties do not cover this product- avoid

      Bought this product under a year ago, only used it twice. On the third occasion to back up my MacBook, the Hard drive failed. After contacting the Apple support Bought this product under a year ago, only used it twice. On the third occasion to back up my MacBook, the Hard drive failed. After contacting the Apple support, they informed me that it was broken (obviously) and I should contact the manufacturer; Apple had no responsibility despite being purchased through Apple. Will never buy an accessory through Apple again.

      Satisfied Customer

      I have previously owned G-Technology portable drives and never had an issue, so this being my reason to purchase this brand once again. For those seeking sleek I have previously owned G-Technology portable drives and never had an issue, so this being my reason to purchase this brand once again. For those seeking sleek design in a portable drive , it has that look.. It is noticeably quiet while operating and after running it for 3 hours there was very little heat to the drive. Like all electronic products, if you take care with them, they will last.
