    G-Technology 1TB G-DRIVE EV drive

    I've been using these drives for over a year now with the G Tech EV dock. This has been a reliable and easy way to manage storage, using different drives for video, photos, TM backup. The dock (thunderbolt connected) has 2 slots, so I can run TM on one drive while working off another. If I run out of storage... go buy another EV drive! Bonus point is that as well as SATA connections in the dock, there is also a USB 3, so I can hook it up to a MacBook pro to go work mobile.

    Works well stand alone.

    I've had the drive a year and have had no issues with it. The case seems robustly designed and includes USB3 and SATA internal type connections. I've used it with Seagate's Backup Plus Desktop Thunderbolt adapter (now discontinued) and with USB3 cables, and the drive works well either way. Fairly speedy HGST 1TB 7200rpm drive inside. Has been great for Photoshop and Lightroom image files from my Nikon D800E, though now I use a larger 2TB WD MyPassport for the Raw Files and a Samsung SSD in an OWC enclosure for large PSD composites and panoramas, and I've re-purposed the G-Drive EV for my iTunes music library. I know no HD will last forever, so all my data is backed up with Carbon Copy Cloner to multiple drives. G-Tech 3 year warranty is better than most. I'm happy with this so far.

    Great and Versatile

    I have two G-Drive docks, one at home and one at the office, and 5 of the 1TB ev modules. They work great for Time Machine backups as well as moving data to and from the office. Fast, quiet and well designed.

    G-Technology 1TB G-DRIVE ev Cartridge USB 3.0 Hard Drive

    I use the ev product range to complete my on-location photoshoots. I needed a drive that has very good read/write speeds that was powered by BUS. An important feature that I can no longer life without is the USB 3.0 HDD daisy chain then utilize it as part of my RAID system…this is phenomenal. The ev system has endless possibilities to add to the amount of storage you have. I would recommend this. The flexibility with G-Technology and Apple is well worth the initial finical outlay. I have switched from Lacie to an entire G-Technology system…this has saved us time and money on important shoots out in the field. The ev HDD’s also work extremely well in the studio.

    I have not experienced any issues with shut down, non-connection, or faults of any description.

    The second time I plugged this in, it stopped working on its own! I'm horrified
