I specifically got this for the FireWire 800. By itself the device works fine but it will not work (fails to mount) if it is anywhere in a FireWire chain (first, middle, or last). The fact that the other FireWire devices are self powered and not bus powered *might* have something to do with. In any case I need to use this with other FireWire drives for copying data, but I have to use the USB (only 2 on my older MacBook Pro) which defeats the purpose of buying a FireWire 800 device. Too bad -- otherwise I would have bought another one. It's a good size for stashing in a safe deposit box.

UPDATE: Despite the Firewire daisy chaining problem, I like this unit so much I bought 3 more. While I could never get Firewire daisy chaining to work with other makes of drives, it works perfectly when all the drives are this same unit.

As a professional photographer/film maker, I've owned many different manufacturers' hard drives in the past; though I've never had a complete failure of a drive yet, G-Tech is my go-to for professional use. Period. With proven reliability, sturdy construction, and great customer service, I can't say enough about these drives! Also, when comparing feature/benefits with comparable models, for the same price, these drives can't be beat! Stop playing around (and waiting around) with your USB 2 connections, and step up to FW800 or Thunderbolt G-Techs. You'll be happy that you did. ;-)

But they all seem to have too much wiggle room. I don't understand why they can't have a snug fit. Too many times these types of drive disconnect if you brush against the connecting cord.

But I've tried both brands and G-Drive is more reliable overall.

Pretty amazing for the size, I mean, this is SMALL. Because this is just a plug in, there is no on/off button, actually there is no buttons at all. A good thing, but it takes a while to get used to the fact that all your computer's info is just backed up by just a simple plug in...crazy! All in all, I really like it, but this is a long term user items, hard to review so quickly, but so far so good!

This past week, it quit backing up and I thought I would have to call support. I checked my drive and it is backing up my entire computer. Once I eliminated old back-ups of the same thing, My G-Drive mobile was ready to go again! I need to figure out how to back up just what I need so it doesn't fill up so fast. It backed up just fine from November 26 through January 7 before it was full, so that wasn't very long before I needed to delete some past back-ups. There is nothing wrong with the G-Drive. It's the operator!

Pros: Easy setup on the Mac. Styling complements Mac hardware. Bus-powered operation eliminates need for a power cord. USB 3 and FIreWire 400/800 ports provide a bridge from older to newer hardware. Silent operation, unlike my old WD drive.

Con: Setup instructions failed to note that you may have to power down, unplug your computer, and restart in order for the drive to appear on the desktop if connected via Firewire.

The G- Drive arrived on time, but has a few problems. This is my only firewire device on my macmini so no chain to worry about. Yet on cold booting (boot from power down) my computers wireless airport would not work. When I attached the firewire G-Drive after booting the wireless airport worked fine. I suspected a bad cable. This was not the issue. I also noticed the computer on cold boot was slow to start with the drive attached. The icon for the drive was not a standard MAC icon either. I was using the G-Drive for Time Machine back ups.

I did not have much data on the drive so I reformatted the drive using the disk utility. I used the same settings as was detected on the utility. Now the drive and the wireless works fine. Something is not standard in the, as is, drive formatting from the factory.

I rate the drive as 4 stars. It works fine, but I should not have to troubleshoot a single firewire device directly attached to the buss.

I purchased this drive on sale and in an emergency when I thought I would need to backup my MacBook Pro. Since it is FireWire, I knew it would be a fast solution. I was able to recover the MacBook so now I have a good external FireWire drive which is quick. The finish of the drive goes great with my MacBook Pro as well as My iMac. It is small and takes little desk space or volume in my carry on luggage when I travel. It is a great device and I highly recommend it.
