This review is from: G-Technology G-DRIVE Q 2TB External Hard Drive w/ eSATA, USB 2.0, Firewire 400, Firewire 800 Interfaces 0G00203 (Personal Computers)Purchased from Amazon, and have owned MANY external drives. These drives are first rate, from the construction, to the design, to the details, including hidden heat sink under drive. They run warm (not hot), and they behave very well with my Mac Pro. They quickly go to sleep when not in use, and they wake up when the computer calls for them. This is an issue with many external drives. These, on the other hand, are perfectly behaved, very quiet, and fast. I am using them on Firewire 800 for time machine and SuperDuper Clone backups, and they are flawless.

The hard drive was always noisy and was slow to respond when idle. But I had nothing to compare it to. Well, the hard drive failed recently and all data on it is probably lost. Check this [...] before trusting one of these drives too much. Well, I had already purchased this 2TB G-Drive and was waiting for it to arrive when the other one failed. (If it had only help up for another week I would have copied all the data to the new drive.) The new drive does seem better; it's nearly silent, can't hear it at all sitting under the desk, where as, the other one was always very audible whenever it was getting into motion. The new drive has a much more compact power supply with a standard DC connector.
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... Read more
