A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

PC Mag says:

The G-Connect hard drive is a puzzle. It does a decent job of storing your data, and makes it convenient for your iOS device to access media content from it wirelessly. But there are a staggering amount of hoops you need to jump through just to set it up and configure it for use.
