    Great buy!

    • Written by from MC DONALD

    I thought my hard drive failed earlier this year, but instead it was only an internal issue that was easily fixed. That scared me enough to immediately go out and buy THIS external hard drive and back up my MacBook Pro. I've had it for a few months and it works like a champ! Once it arrived I set it up and backed up my MacBook Pro without any problems! Get price, get product!

    This hard drive is garbage

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    DO NOT BUY THIS. THIS IS THE MOST CHEAPLY MADE PIECE OF TRASH I HAVE EVER USED. THE USB PORT BROKE OFF INSIDE THE HARD DRIVE ITSELF AND IT WOULD COST JUST AS MUCH TO FIX IT AS I PAID FOR THE ACTUAL DRIVE ITSELF. I HAD ALOT OF PROJECTS ON THIS DRIVE AND NOW THEY'RE ALL GONE. INVEST IN SOMETHING BETTER!

    Does its job but.......

    • Written by from Cayucos

    Bought 2 for ranch iMacs. Plugged in and it seems to do the job right away so 5 stars there. It was the complete opposite of Western Digital where you have an onslaught of vague instructions and then have a blast with all the glitches. And I mean ALL the glitches ALL the time. Even following their instructions doesn't change what is suppose to change. Anyway, the problem here is the LACK of instructions. Had to call customer service and I knew more about their website and available downloads/info for device than he did (nice fellow though). But there was a whole lot more to this conversation with him than what I am going to write. It was ludicrous. And that was just trying to find out how to password protect this in case of theft. It went downhill from there on any topic you can think of - I mean you had to be there to hear it! Horrible software interface and customer support (but again nice guy probably new). All that gets a negative one star. So I figured 3 stars was fair overall. Maybe I can stumble on the answers later myself.

    Great Value!!!! Awesome for Time Capsule Backup

    • Written by from Antioch

    I just recently replaced my old MacBook with a MacBook Pro Retina and needed to save all my files after doing tons of research I found this one at a great value, well known brand, very slim and sturdy... It's a great purchase and I will probably but another as a Christmas present!!!

    Good.

    • Written by from Irvine

    I was worried about the earlier review about the loose connection; on my 2010 laptop it seemed to be a little loose, but I later learned that with a little more force you can push it in further and it'll be quite secure.

    It is easier to plug it into a secure position in my 2014 laptop, it's a much better fit. I've used it for a few weeks without any problems, and 1TB for this price seems like a good deal.

    Wow, great product and deal

    • Written by from Richmond

    I have a 500GB hard drive that I pretty much filled up with pictures and videos. I didn't want to invest in a new iMac yet, but I needed space. For a long time I hesitated to buy an external because they are expensive. I can't believe the price and capacity of this one. I put all my iPhoto library on it and now I freed up my mac and it runs better. So happy this product is available. I look forward to getting another one soon to do the same thing with my Macbook.

    Great Deal!

    • Written by from Powder Springs

    Amazing deal on this 1TB Drive. I have always gone with Seagate or GTech, but the price point is what attracted me to this drive. Its super reliable and easy to transport.

    Great for the price...

    • Written by from Gainesville

    I love the fact that this drive is all metal casing. BUT, as stated in another review, the USB 3.0 that connects to the hard drive is NOT very secure. Please beware of this, but don't be discouraged by this flaw. Other than that, it seems to be a great drive. I used Blackmagic Disk Speed Test to see the READ and WRITE SPEEDS of this drive since it was no where to be found by the manufacture or Apple. The speed results that I got were: WRITE - 89.5mb/s and READ - 92.6mb/s. Hope this helps.

    G-Tech 1TB HD

    • Written by from Morehead City

    Bought 2 of these; the first died within 2 weeks. Replaced it with another and that one made noises it should not have made and would not mount. I so wanted to like this HD.

    Bad Connection

    • Written by from Evanston

    I'm disappointed in this drive's connection. The USB 3.0 cable doesn't lock into the drive very well. I use it on a laptop, and just moving it (the drive or the laptop) a little will disconnect the drive. Buyer beware.

    Great device to have with you!

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I primarily bought this device just to hold my vast music/movie collection, but I didn't even read how it was Time Machine compatible. That is a huge feature for me! It was instantly able to back up my entire Macbook Air, so at least I know I always have a complete backup with me too. I would highly recommend this product to any Mac owner out there!

    Such a great hard drive!

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I sell a lot of hard drives and this by far is my favorite external hard drive. it works great as a backup hard drive. It's design compliments Apple's beautiful computers very well.

    I'm a Apple Certified Macintosh Technician and I've never seen a G-Tech hard drive fail.

    Buy this hard drive and backup your data.
