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 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 !

This drive was noisy, which I could live with, but it just broke after 4 months of light use. I started getting "I/O Error" messages, and the Time Capsule could no longer write to the drive. I was unable to repair the errors with Disk Utility, so back to the manufacturer it goes. Be aware that the manufacturer is very, VERY specific packaging guidelines for returning their garbage back to them. I'll never buy anything else from this company.

I t I bought this drive in June 2013 after losing my main computer drive. Today I had a message that Mac OX could not repair disk. I tried to get it to re-connect, but to no use. Now I need to look for a new one before anything happens to my main HD in the computer.

    I only give it 2 stars because it was always having issues backing up coming out of sleep. I would have to restart the computer to correct it. It was also bulky and loud like others commented.
