I of course contacted G-Technologies and found out that G-Technologies WOULD NOT honor their own warranty. Not only did I lose all my data -- I also have a $200 paperweight to remind me of what a rip-off product this G-drive is. Tip: If you care about safeguarding your data -- DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE!!

  • Good Built but too noisy and glowing led

    Good built quality, but too bulky for today's standards. It is fast when used as Firewire 800. So far works reliably. However it Good built quality, but too bulky for today's standards. It is fast when used as Firewire 800. So far works reliably. However it is too noisy and the front led is more of a flashlight than an indicator, quite disturbing, as it is placed beside my iMac !

    I bought the 2 TB hard drive 2 years ago. I didn't take it out out the box until a year later because I was organizing files and f I bought the 2 TB hard drive 2 years ago. I didn't take it out out the box until a year later because I was organizing files and folders and finally ready to swap out the 1 TB G-Drive with the 2 TB G-Drive. I started using Time Machine with the new 2 TB hard drive. A year later it started making a clicking sound and then died, unable to get it to connect in Finder window. Thats it. It was over. My warranty had expired and a data recovery service estimated $500-1500 to rescue data. All my photos, movies gone. Just like that. The 2 TB was really only working for 1 year before it quit. Using G-Drives is a total crapshoot. Just know that unless you have 2 backup systems or a back up to the backup, it will fail any given day. Whats the point. G-Technology failed me completely.

  • Excellent speeds, Noise level unacceptable

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    I purchased this drive along with a 27" iMac to use for a recording studio. The noise level is anything but "Quiet" as the descri I purchased this drive along with a 27" iMac to use for a recording studio. The noise level is anything but "Quiet" as the description says.

    It is really too noisy to be used in an audio facility. Sad because the performance is top grade, so is the look next to the iMac.

    I will be returning it as it is unfortunately useless to me. Apple should realy change the product description or at least provide noise level information.
