Housed in an aluminum enclosure, the G-DRIVE G1 features data transfer rates up to 165 MB/s and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, both of which allow for quick file access and fast data transfer speeds. The G-DRIVE G1 natively supports USB 3.0 and includes a USB 3.0 cable, and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.
While the G-DRIVE G1 is compatible with both Windows and Mac, it comes formatted for Mac OS and supports Apple's Time Machine software, allowing your Mac to be backed up to this drive. To use this drive with Windows, it will need to be reformatted. Also included with the G-DRIVE G1 is a power adapter.
