      I’ve had 2 and had no success.

I used it for backups and one day decided to do a factory reset on my computer because it was getting slow. I wanted to put some of my files back on and when I plugged in my g-drive the files were gone. Brought it to the Apple store and they said it seemed like a fluke. Lost everything but lucklily had some stuff backed up to Carbinate. Bought another G drive and within weeks the cord stopped fitting in snugly causing it to eject with the slightest movement. I’m very careful with my things. My MacBook is from 2011 and still looks brand new after constant everyday use. Will not be getting another G drive. Looking for better options now.

      Just the job and reasonable price

My Mac has only usb2, I know I should get a modern one, but not at this time! When I came across this drive I thought it was great value and came with two connecting leads, so it was bound to work. Delivery was quick and it worked out of the box. No need to reformat! The connecting lead was great and I quickly had it backing up my macine. It was a lot quicker that my old drive, not up to usb3 standards, but very acceptable. It has continued to work for a couple of weeks and will last a long time, I am sure. Very happy with it.

      slow

      I am using it for backups and as an external storage as well. I am nowhere close to 130MB/s. Full back up of my MBP 2017 (just about 200GB used) took around 10 I am using it for backups and as an external storage as well. I am nowhere close to 130MB/s. Full back up of my MBP 2017 (just about 200GB used) took around 10 hours maybe even more. Moving movies to the storage goes with the speed of 30MB/s at the best. Disappointed
