It's a great looking piece of kit and beautifully built but it's let down by two things. Firstly it's quite noisy, especially when Time Machine is running, a bit like a piece of paper stuck in the spokes of a bicycle. Second, is there any need for such a large and bright light on the front, it's a bit distracting especially when it's flashing away during back ups. I bought it to complement my new iMac and it does this very well and I've no complaints about it's operation, which is superb. If it was as quiet and unobtrusive as the Buffalo it replaced it would be the bees knees.

There are two downsides - an over bright and very active (distracting) white LED activity light on the front and it is quite noisy even when only system processes are running. When it's backing up it is time to walk the dog!

I have this disk and 3 Iomega 1TB disks all on a shelf under the desk and this units makes an irritating hum noise, like mains hum but it goes if you press the case. Sometimes. When TimeMachine is running to gets too distracting. Ill be trading this one in for a quiet model.

The one I have is very quiet and works well, with no problems so far. It's very smart and apart from the price being a little steep, I'm pleased with it. One thing to note is that you need it switched on if you're daisy chaining firewire devices. I have a firewire audio interface that's last in the chain and it only works if the G Drive is turned on.

    I brought the G-DRIVE 2 weeks ago and have no complaints so far.
    - Its extremely easy to use, with no set up required, unless yo I brought the G-DRIVE 2 weeks ago and have no complaints so far.
    - Its extremely easy to use, with no set up required, unless you what partition the hard drive (which I have done and was easy to do).
    - Although hard drive's fan does make a noise I personally don't think that it is to intrusive. I don't find it a destruction and can't hear it if I have music playing.
    - A very minor problem I have with it, is the LED light flashes when backing up, this can be extremely annoy if its in your peripheral vision. However this is easily solved by placing the G-DRIVE in my desk cabinet or simply turning it away from me.

    Great looking product, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it if you are relying on working directly from this drive.

    The main p Great looking product, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it if you are relying on working directly from this drive.

    The main problem I have with the drive is. It goes to sleep too much for my liking!

    YES I have turned off 'sleep drives' in system preferences. The drive still sleeps after 5-10 mins. When it wakes the drive crashes, therefore I have to eject then restart.

    Massive Pain!
