Jon L. Jacobi, Freelance contributor at Macworld recently reviewed the SanDisk Professional G-DRIVE SSD. The G-DRIVE SSD, available in 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB is durable, fast and portable. It features IP67 water-and dust-resistance, 3-meter drop protection, and a 1000 lb crushproof rating. Transfer speeds up to 560MB/s let you quickly save, edit and archive large source files, while a versatile USB-C™port with a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface keeps this device ready for laptops both old and new.
Check out some highlights from Jacobi's reveiw.
"The drive is a predominantly dark gray with a louvered top and bottom to allow heat shedding from the internal metal structure. A silver end cap on the business end houses the single Type-C USB port and there’s a small slit LED activity indicator on the other end of the drive."
"WD wasn’t forthcoming about the SSD inside, but it’s likely one of the company’s lower-tier NVMe models as evidenced by its approximately 1GBps transfer rate (SATA would top out at 550MBps) . There’s no need for anything faster when USB is already capping the performance."
"The SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD is currently the cream of the portable 10Gbps USB crop. It’s a bit larger than some, and perhaps not as sexy as others, but it’s the fastest, the most affordable from a brand vendor, and one of the few that sports an IP67 rating. Nice."
