  • Dual Thunderbolt ports for Daisy Chaining
  • Both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt

  • Lackluster performance
  • The enclosure isn't user serviceable
  • Slow to wake from an idle state
  • Speeds never get close to Thunderbolt
At A Glance

The G-DRIVE mobile with Thunderbolt from G-Technology is a decent portable option featuring a 7200 RPM 2.5-inch drive inside an enclosure featuring both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 ports. This gives you a greater range of connection options, but with a single rotational drive the Thunderbolt options feels needless.
