    Not suitable for home use, only corporate.

    The drive never goes to sleep so and is constantly making a noise. You wouldn't want it in the same room as you if you were not using the computer

    If your computer goes to sleep the drive disconnects and will not reconnect so you have to turn it of and on manually to reconnect. It is still noisy even though not connected.

    I've had two discussions over the last 2 years with support. They basically say, tough, its not for domestic use. Leave your computer on permanently and put up with the noise.

    I'm writing now because I'm really really fed up of the error messages and the constant turning on and of. Defeats the whole purpose of a back up disk and I've recently been caught out not being able to access previous versions of a document I'd been heavily editing.

    Works fine for me....

    I've been buying hard drives since the mid 80s and they all worked except for the ones that didn't. I've had Samsungs and LaCies die on me over the past couple of years. Buying hard drives is like doing the lottery.

    This G-Tech has been great - on all the time, silent when it isn't in overdrive which is rarely, and has so far been 100% reliable. Just about to buy another.

    Very unreliable - died in 4 months (half a star)

    Used with a macbook pro to backup aerial footage. Noisy and absolutely unreliable when it failed to mount this morning, were unable to fix with Diskwarrior and Data Rescue. Sending it back...

    I bought this as a back up hard drive being impressed with other products I bought from this manufacturer. This particular hard drive has died which makes it pointless. So recommend buyers stay well clear.
