G-Drive Mobile SSD R-Series: Small external SSD with USB 3.1 Gen2 Type C

Saturday, September 16th, 2017 | Gadgets

The G-Drive G-Drive SSD R-Series is an external SSD from the Western Digital market. The cryptic description can be broken down: it is a portable solid state drive of the rugged class. G-Technology applies it with IP67 protection, which protects the SSD from dust and against immersion in water. The target group is about photographers because they are outside.

With 94 x 50 x 14.5 mm, the G-Drive is less wide, but longer and thicker than the Samsung Portable SSD T5 tested by us. While the South Koreans use Msata SSDs that are not available on the inside, G-Technology could rely on M.2-2280 models such as the WD Blue 3D. With up to 2 terabytes of capacity and a transfer rate of up to 560 MB per second, the G-Drive has typical key data. The speed is only for sequential reading. A hardware encryption is missing.
G-Technology equips the SSD with a USB Type C female connector and attaches two cables (C-to-C and C-to-A). The interface is designed as USB 3.1 Gen2, otherwise it would end at about 450 MB per second. According to the manufacturer, the G-Drive is available with a capacity of 500 GB as well as with 1 terabyte and 2 Terabyte. The prices are 200, 380 and 700 US dollars before taxes. G-Technology would like to deliver the G-Drive still in 2017, a more precise date we could not find out yet.

Other external compact SSDs with USB 3.1 Gen2 and Type C are available from Adata (SE730), Angelbird (SSD2go PKT), Sandisk (Extreme 900 Portable SSD) and Western Digital (My Passport SSD).
