    Excellent external drive

    • Written by Frederic B from Pflugerville

    I purchased the 2T drive not for my Mac but as external storage for my PS4. Plugged it in, formatted as external storage, and it then showed up as a 2T drive. Setup took maybe a minute. I transferred a few applications to it, redownloaded some games I had previously deleted to save space, and did some testing. So far it's as fast or faster than the built-in drive. If I ever need an additional drive for my Mac or other systems, I'll go with another one of these drives. It is great that it comes with cables for both USB-A (traditional USB) and USB-C, doesn't need its own power supply, and can be used by Mac, Windows, and PS4. It needs to be reformatted if you want to use it with a Windows system, and the software is available for download from G-Technology. Easiest drive setup experience I've ever had in over 40 years of working with computers!

    Overall impressive

    • Written by Michael M from Encinitas

    I purchased this item to use for Time Machine on my new iMac and was impressed with the price, size, quietness and the fact that it came with two cables included. (USB to USB-C and USB-C to USB-C)

    I have it connected to my iMac via the USB-C to USB-C cable.

    At first, it reported the backup time to be about the same amount of time as my older USB connected hard drive, however as I type this review I can see that the time might be cut in half. Not earth shattering but still much improved and nice and quiet.
