G-Drives are the BEST!

As a composer-songwriter-creative-media artist-designer-film producer-editor-music producer and creative writer....I rely on my external drives to store 3+ TB of all kinds of data and I rely on several back-ups to make sure that nothing gets lost or deleted. I must say that I have G-Drives (smaller ones) that I take with me on the road that are ALMOST 9 years old and they work flawlessly. I purchased this G-Drive 4TB to replace a different brand that I got a deal on and that failed after a year. I can NOT say enough nice things about the G-Drives they have been rock-solid and fast. Moreover, the Thunderbolt aspect takes this Hard Drive to a whole new level. As time goes by, I'll be replacing my older drives with SSD drives, but I will only consider G-Drives as replacements..... You can not go wrong with G-Drives. Also, my Sweetwater rep, James Masterson is a true Pro and a get help to me..... Thanks James and Sweetwater.

Great. Love it

Great External

I use this mainly for backing up my Pro Tools bounces, session data, etc. as well as separate Video files such as Media Composer, Final Cut Pro or DaVinci Resolve. I simply manage all these files creating my own folders. The G-Tech drive is fast with Thunderbolt, and nice and quiet. I am very pleased with this product. It comes formatted ready for Mac users like me, which I like. I use a separate G-Tech drive for complete laptop backups. Sweetwater knows what's best!

Takes a few seconds to wake up, but other than that it seems to work great.

Too Loud and Clunky Sounding

No memory problems so far but sounds like a freight train. Save your money for a thunderbolt SSD. Less than 300 hours use and getting louder. Sweetwater has always been good to me so no blame on them. SATA drives are ancient history.
