Does your Dad like to geek out with gadgets? Does he have to have everything from the latest in 3dTV technology to an operating system upgrade. So what better gift to give your dad this year than a G-Tech hard drive made by Hitachi GST.
On top of all the downloading and uploading Dad likes to do he has probably racked up a whole lot of data on his computer hard drive. G-Tech’s rugged design makes sense for dads who are looking for a sleek and reliable way to store all the digital files they have collected over the years. Sure, tablets and digital cameras might seem more exciting than a hard drive, but don’t you think that your dad’s most important piece of electronics equipment is the one that keeps all those digital pictures of the family and his extensive music collection safe!
G-DRIVE mobile hard drives are the perfect compliment to your new Apple MacBook Pro®. Weighing in at less than 9 oz., G-DRIVE mobile is the ultra-portable and stylish way to travel with up to 500GB of storage space for your important documents, MP3s, digital video and digital photo files. G-DRIVE mobile is bus powered, eliminating the need to carry an external AC power supply. Portability was never so easy!
Easy to Setup – Time Machine ready!
G-DRIVE mobile is formatted at the factory HFS+ with Journaling and is Time Machine ready right out of the box! A simple initialization is all it takes to prepare G-DRIVE mobile for use with Windows® systems!
The Best Warranty & Support in the Business
G-DRIVE mobile is backed by a standard 3-year factory warranty.
Our review for the G Drive Mobile came at the perfect time. I tend to empty my digital camera media card onto my computer’s desktop. I have never had a problem, until recently. While I was still using my Windows laptop, one of the littler kids was messing around and I heard some beeps. When I went to use my pictures later that day… they were gone. I searched for nearly an hour… they. were. just. gone. * insert sniffles here*
The G-Drive was super simple to use. I am a new MacBook Pro user, so simplicity is key for me. My old external hard drive had to be plugged into the wall and then into the USB on the computer. The G-Drive is bus powered… meaning it draws it’s power through the USB. No external power cords, yippee!
After unpacking the drive I attached the cord to one end and plugged the USB in. That was it! The G Drive showed up on my desktop, I double clicked and I was in.
The G-Drive is so small and sleek compared to my older external, also. They both have a 500 MB capacity, but the G-Drive is half the size and weight making it easier to port around if needed. I am loving all of these features and would recommend this hard drive in a heart beat!
You can purchase the 500 GB version of the Hitachi G Drive Mobile Fireware Drive for $119.99
