Rated 1 out of 5 by Tyler 2nd One Returned for Replacement :(
It's great, and small, but I've now had to send back the second one of these for a replacement after both stopped working. They both started spin/clicking and I was told that the drives are fried. I have requested a different drive this time as I cannot afford to lose any data. If it weren't for the fact that I back things up twice I would have lost a lot of files.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colaboe77 Awesome product
I wanted to purchase a product that would answer my needs and was also compatable with my Mac pro. Man o man did the Gdrive answer my needs. Its the best and
most reliable hard drive that I had in the past.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lauralinl It's not only looks and feels good but also accomplished the taskes
It's not only looks and feels good but also accomplished the tasks. If I need another one, I will still buy this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HowieZ Connect it and it works.
Installed in Sept. '11. Use it for Time Machine on a MBP. Plug it in, initiate TM, works perfectly.
Only issue: when I put MBP to sleep, power continues to the drive via the USB connection. This uses battery power.
Rated 5 out of 5 by alphamacman Quality portable USB hard drive, super-easy backups, excellent price.
This is a plug-and-play USB drive that makes it completely painless to back up my Mac hard drive every day. Works perfectly with Time Machine. The price is very good and reliability has been perfect.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Doc627 Product has worked flawlessly
Received this drive as a Xmas present to complement my new MacAir. I connect about once per month and back up my drive using Time Machine software. It is easy to use and has worked perfectly for me. I have used other manufacture's drives for my other computers and have not been as lucky. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cameragirl328 This product works well and with speed.
I have been very pleased with the G Drive Mobile USB. It is easy to transport, takes up very little room on my desk. I haven't had any problems backing up to it.
I have recommended this drive to two friends and they each bought one.

I bought this item to back up my Macbook Air. It is very easy to use and is perfect for what I need.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mac962 Performs as promised.
Good quality and works easily right out of the box. Time machine immediately recognized it and setting up a back up was seamless. Operating noise is very low. Appears to be very well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vonnie So easy
I am not all that computer smart but this product was as easy as pie. I just plugged it in and it did the rest. Every 2 weeks it alerts me that it's time to back up my macbook. I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scottkinfw G-Drive Experiences, Mobile, and others
I have four G-drives of different sizes, desktop and portable units, and love them all.
I research my purchases, and decided on G-Drives based on reviews. Each unit has performed flawlessly. I find that they tend to be a bit more expensive than some other brands, but this is a case where it is worth spending a few extra dollars because of build quality of the enclosure, speed, reliability, and durability. Tech support is excellent which adds to the added value of these products, and they are aesthetically pleasing too.
One last thing that seems like a small thing, but it is really nice. Each unit ships with connecting cords (that match!), so you don't have to purchase one or dig through your box of old mismatched cords.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smartypants Love the ease of being able to transport it without issues. Sleek design also matches my MacBook.
Great storage capacity, esthetically sleek, ease of transporting it makes it very handy in different environments.
Rated 5 out of 5 by janiecem Light-weight, portable mobile drive
This has been one of my better purchases for my Mac computers. It works every time I connect it to either of my Macs for Time Machine back-ups and I also store some of my larger documents and all of my photos on it. I haven't had a single problem with it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sophie I purchased my external hard-drive as a back-up for my laptop and I'm satisfied.
It has done exactly what I need it to do – quietly, in the background, on my desk, unobtrusively and reliably. That's all I want from my back-up equipment.
Rated 5 out of 5 by briang Extremely reliable product
Super quiet, little to no heat, easy to set up. This drive is a very solid purchase, and a great way for me to backup my files. Extremely portable (and remarkably durable for its size!), and rather stylish.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gavin Everything I expected. Good product.
I am not disappointed with this product. It does everything it was intended to do. It is easy to use. Like everyone - I would like more speed, but this product has delivered all it claimed to deliver. Good product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Captron G-Drives never let me down
I've always used the small portable USB drive format to back up my computers because they are high capacity and they are small to fit in my fire safe. Over the years I've tried several brands that all have died. I now stick with G-Drive because every one I've ever bought (3) is still running.
Rated 4 out of 5 by abg1 Easy to use, but could use some guidance.
Easy to transfer info, but I was uncertain whether to transfer the entire hard drive or just various folders. Couldn't find direction for this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by eilen This product is an excellent purchase.
I am very content with the G-Drive Mobile USB.
It is a good product and very reliable .
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tsar007 The G-Drive Mobile is a dependable external hard drive.
The G-Drive Mobile is an excellent external hard drive that is great for off site use and does not need and external electric outlet. I use it all the time and it has never had any problems. I have also recommended it to others. Great for use with laptop computers where there is limited computer space and helps to maintain an even work flow.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocketdun G-Drive Mobile USB
This is a great solution to an external back-up drive for my laptop. I use it on a Mac Book Pro as my Time Machine back up. It is a great external drive, easy to use, just plug the drive into the USB port and you are ready to go.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gcw3 Attractive & Practical
I'm using it for video archiving and so far it's been flawless.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rwtiedemann Excellent value and quality
While the transfer speed could be faster, the quality of this drive is top notch! A must have for reliable performance.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarahjd Great product
I love my G drive! Its portable with extra storage for all my pictures and documents. It's thin but large in quality.
Definitely worth the money!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by DJBentley This product has great ease of use and great quality.
I'm a mobile DJ and needed a reliable mobile USB hard-drive. I bought the G-DRIVE mobile USB 500GB hard-drive and was very happy. The drive is highly reliable, easy to use and its performance is excellent.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MPEE This product has met my expectations
The product has performed to date with accuracy and reliability.The simplicity and compatibility factors with my.MAC computer are the strengths of this small and compact back up drive. It integrates well with the Time Machine use and as such meets all the needs for my everyday use.
