After so Bought this product and for the majority of the time i loved it! design looks great and sat nicely beside my macbook air. After some solid use of transferring movies back a forth from the macbook air to this device, it suddenly stopped working. I met with an apple genius who told me that the software had been over run? He advised me to try and restore the hard drive, and if i was unable to do that to contact G-Drive. I had no such luck on restoring the drive.

    Really wish this worked better, hope it doesn't happen to you.

    I will no longer be using a G-Drive products for my hard drives.

    I love this hard drive. I have the 128GB Macbook Air and I store all of my movies on this drive since they don't fit in the Air. I I love this hard drive. I have the 128GB Macbook Air and I store all of my movies on this drive since they don't fit in the Air. I take it with me everywhere, it's much smaller and thinner than it looks in the photos. I've never had any drive issues with it at all- highly recommend it. I wish I had gotten the 1TB, but that was my bad not G-techs at all.

    Took a chance on this drive, was skeptical due to it's price. However, I have been pleasantly surprised. I run Cubase on my 15" Re Took a chance on this drive, was skeptical due to it's price. However, I have been pleasantly surprised. I run Cubase on my 15" Retina MacBook pro, and this drive hosts most of my sample libraries. The other cool think is its size...hard to believe it's a 7200!

    Using Time Machine when I updated to Mavericks the external hard drive wasn't recognized. Completely lost everything that had been Using Time Machine when I updated to Mavericks the external hard drive wasn't recognized. Completely lost everything that had been backed up. Being very diligent in backing up every day as you can imagine this was very disappointing. So I'll go spend a little more money and see if my next external hard drive will hold up.
