This review is from: G-Technology G-DRIVE mobile 0G02420 500GB USB 3.0 Silver Portable Hard Drive
I am putting in this review to offset "Ken's" lack of understanding connectors and cables. Ken, THAT IS a standard USB 3.0 connector. USB 3 cables ARE way thicker than USB 2.0 cables. The "USB" mini connector is ONLY USB 2.0 and is several years older than the USB Micro connector (many cell phones use this) and USB Micro is also USB 2.0 ONLY. The cable is totally standard (look up USB 3.0 cable images for ANY device and you will see the same connector).
It is frustrating to see non informed people write reviews who do not understand this is NOT a proprietary cord. You could order ANY USB 3.0 cord from any maker and get the connectors in question. Now if the drive was slow, if the drive failed, if the drive got finger prints too easily, if the drive was no longer detect by Windows (don't forget to use "Safely eject" every time you disconnect USB drives - thumb or hard drive) if the drive got dented too easily, if the case cracked, if the drive got too warm (use CrystalDiskInfo to see what EXACT hard drive is inside the enclosure, with speed info etc.) those are all valid points, but the cable, which is generic???
