To my dismay, I discovered through my research that every brand/model of drive has received poor reviews. There wasn't a clear choice to make. It would seem that computer reliability has increased to the level that the hard drive is the weak link in the system now. Since my existing external was a Seagate 300GB firewire, I went with a 1TB FreeAgent from Seagate. Boy was that a huge mistake. Users are very unhappy with that product and so was I: it appears that Seagate doesn't build their firewire drives for mac compatibility anymore. If you need firewire, avoid Seagate.
Having a reliable backup drive is more important than ever so I crossed my fingers and went with G-Tech based on its feature set and my previous positive experience with Hitachi drive mechanisms (they own G-Tech).Read more ›
Update: Ops, I posted an external link, I see that is not allowed. It was to the G-Tech support forum. Well, I must add to this review that G-Tech really took care of me in the end. It took a little effort to get a response from them and to get them to understand I needed the data recovered or returned "and" (not "or") the drive repaired. They recovered the data and sent me a brand new 2TB G-Drive, so I have no complaints. I'd say they are dedicated to customer satisfaction even if they don't always get it right the first time.
I contacted G Technologies customer support because the drive was under warranty. I received an email telling me that there was a problem with my drive. They told me I would receive an RMA to return the drive for service. Boy, was I surprised when the RMA came through. It had a dozen instructions on how to pack the drive to send to them for service. One of the instructions made it clear that the packaging the drive came with was insufficient for shipping. It also made it clear that proper packing was my responsibility and my sole cost. There was no estimate on how long it would take to service the drive, and there was no guarantee that my data would be preserved. In short, the process was so cumbersome that I began questioning whether it was worth the time and effort at all.
I have recently scanned message boards and learned I'm not the only one out there with this technical issue. From responses posted by users who claim to be part of the G Tech support team, it appears there is a controller board flaw that can only be corrected by an update to the firmware, but the firmware update has to be performed by G Tech. You can't do it yourself. What a waste of money. I will be very reluctant to purchase a drive from them in the future. I never had this issue with my LaCie drives.
