    I am terribly displeased with this product. After having it for 3 months, the drive was not consistently writable. After talking t I am terribly displeased with this product. After having it for 3 months, the drive was not consistently writable. After talking to a tech at G-Technology, the hardware simply malfunctioned and I have to send it in for a refurbished replacement. Several of my colleagues have had the same issue happen more than once. I would not recommend anyone buying this drive.
