G-Technology G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD 500GB External Drive Review

Rating: 8.0.

G-Technology’s G-Drive mobile Pro SSD external drive is aimed at professional users, offering super-fast transfer rates for jobs such as editing very high definition video editing in real time or VR rendering on the move using a combination of an NVMe SSD and Thunderbolt 3 interface.

The G-Drive mobile Pro SSD comes in two capacities; 500GB and 1TB, with an official transfer rate of up to 2,800MB/s for both models thanks to its combination of an M.2 NVMe drive and Thunderbolt 3 connection. The drive uses passive cooling in the shape of a hefty aluminium heatsink which provides most of the answer why an external drive that uses a M.2 format SSD weighs in at a substantial 1.04kg.

It’s not only quick, it’s also built to survive the rigours of being used on the road. As part of G-Technology’s R-series of rugged drives it comes protected in a rubber feel case, designed to survive a 3-meter drop and up to 1000lb of crush.

G-Technology back the drive with a 5-yr limited warranty.
