    I love this drive. i go on a lot of business trips, and take a lot of photos, and videos. The best part of this drive is that i ca I love this drive. i go on a lot of business trips, and take a lot of photos, and videos. The best part of this drive is that i can edit my video's (even HD) in the plane, as it powered over the FW and USB bus. no need for external power! never had a problem with any of my Gtech drives... Not sure about the other review on apple, but it has a 3 year warranty. maybe he needs to call support. but i give this 5 stars!

    First of all, do not waste your time buying this product! For any of you wondering why, continue reading .. I bought this external First of all, do not waste your time buying this product! For any of you wondering why, continue reading .. I bought this external drive with high hopes of quality and reliability. I am a full time university student with a passion for taking pictures and videos. With space running low on my computer i turned to this external drive to back up all my pictures. After copying all my pictures and videos to the drive I was impressed on the speed of the transfer. I then double and triple checked to make sure the pictures were on the external drive. Happy with the results I deleted all the pictures/videos on my computer, and removed the drive as instructed. The next day i plugged it back in and BAM my computer can't read the files as the drive has FAILED. All of my memorable pictures/videos GONE !! Not impressed one bit!
