THE G-DRIVE 4TB
Just like its predecessor the new G-DRIVE is also designed to blend with MAC systems and yes its aluminum body still looks great.
The fascia of the unit is perforated and in the middle we see the G-Technology logo and a small white activity LED right beneath it.
The enclosure is also perforated on both sides to allow hot air to exit the enclosure.
Moving at the rear we find a Kensington lock, USB 3.0, FireWire 800 (400 compatible with the provided cable), DC in port and an On/Off power switch.
The unit sits on of 4 small round rubber feet and in the middle we see the integrated heatsink that measures 10cm in length and 6cm in width.
All of the interface cables are placed beneath a thin metal plate.
For the G-DRIVE HGST used their high end Deskstar 7K4000 SATA III hard disk drive.
