Product brief: Hitachi G-Drive 3TB review
Rating
Overall:

An external hard drive with plenty of storage geared towards Mac users.

Take one look at the G-Drive and it is clear that the product is aimed at Apple users. The elaborate brushed Aluminium chassis acts as both an effective dissipater of heat and a stylish complement to Apple design.

This is borne out by Mac formatting plus eSATA, FireWire 800 and USB 2 ports. While the lack of USB 3 keeps it a Mac-only offering, we cannot fault the performance of the unit, which manages good speeds while staying cool thanks to the cleverly designed chassis.

3TB is also a heck of a lot of storage, so you’ll need to weigh up whether you actually need that much space.

This is a decent option if you are after an external drive for your Mac, but PC users will want to look elsewhere.
