    Satisfied

    Works as described. Satisfied with the performance. Giving only 4 stars due to high price.

    Terrible

    I used this drive to store valuable footage and kept it in my desk drawer. One year later I go to use it and it's completely dead, no power via thunderbolt or usb. Currently getting a replacement but my data is gone forever. Avoid G-Tech and WD drives in general as every one I've had has failed early.

    Happy user!

    Honestly, I shopped around for a few hours looking for the right drive. I finally choose the G- Drive Mobile. It gets the job done. The price point is higher than many other options, but if that was my real concern I wouldn't own a Mac... So, don't cheap out. This is the brand that the pros trust for a reason! Happy shopping!

    NOT "Whisper Quiet"

    Just bought this and set it up. It is NOT "whisper quiet." I work in music production. I bought this for my home studio for the large file and quick transfer rate so that I could use it as a dedicated drive for only music libraries, projects, etc. But with the level of noise, I can see it is going to be a problem. I need to listen for very subtle sound quality issues when mixing tracks with studio monitors. This will interfere with my ability to do that since there is a constant very audible hissing noise. Sounds like one of those little mini desk fans. Marketing says it's good for audio professionals. This is NOT true. Photographers/film professionals with huge files, maybe. But not anyone that needs to work with audio.

    Not as fast as advertised

    Sleek, compact and efficient, but it does not live up to the advertised transfer rates. While I don't expect the fastest transfer rate as a Time Machine option, the Thunder Bolt backs up at approximately 13 mbps, which is 1/10th the advertised top speed. Faster than a USB drive, but painful for transferring large amounts of data.
