Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I reformatted and tried to use the drives again, but there would continually be tiny amounts of data loss. I initially thought, “One lemon. So what?” until, very much to my disappointment, it became predictable that I would have trouble with about one in four of them. I intend to send in the last couple of drives and whatever they send me back per warranty, I’m listing on eBay.
So then I log into Amazon and look these reviews, like you are doing now - and I see that g-drives are holding steady at around four stars while selected Western Digitals are holding strong at five.
I can’t say I’m brand loyal to WD, but I’m sick of returns, replacements, and all the time lost trying not to lose data in the numerous drive switches to date. I’m making an effort to look for affordable SSD drives with a much long lifespan, and in the meantime I prefer to go with WD over G. Never thought I would say that.
Thanks for the seven years G-peeps. But alas, it’s time to move on.
And best wishes to you, prudent shopper reading this.
After googling and asking around, I did different things: reboot, Disk Utilities, check cables and connections, etc. nothing...nada. I had to spring for tech advice which was costly and installed a piece of software that was able to scan the 4T...took like a day and a half to do that. Now I need another space tank to put what I've recovered into. After spending almost $200, I was hoping this baby was going to be the last one...but not to be. I did quite a bit of research and did not want to go with Toshiba or WD or even (shudder) Seagate...not sure what to do. I'm back at square one again since I can't return it and it's out of warranty. Wish I could get my money back. :(
UPDATE: 8/2/2019. I solved the issue by reformating the HD and now it works like a charm. However it is a bit picky when it comes to ejecting it, you have to wait. Otherewise a good piece.
I deserve it I should have bought the same old original WD.. SMFH

- Update, after getting a second G-Drive, this time a 6TB I have taken the drives out of the enclosure and running them inside a Mac Pro where their temperature is kept well within reasonable limits with a FAN.
G TECHNOLOGY please start designing good drive enclosures again! Whats the point in putting enterprise class hard drives inside cheap plastic trays so they bake them selves to death... unless that IS your plan, and then when they fail, how do you expect people to then want to buy another drive from you?
-7200 RPM for fast editing
-External Power so it doesnt affect my laptop
-Silent, barely any noise
-Portable for a drive that size
-It does get a bit hot if you use it for a while but overall is a great drive
