Summary

WD G-Drive Pro 18TB

The WD G-Drive Pro is a fast desktop drive with a 7200 RPM drive and includes both USB 3.0 and dual Thunderbolt 3 interfaces. Supports daisy-chaining of drives through Thunderbolt. The non-Pro WD G-Drive includes a 7200 RPM drive and is better value unless you need Thunderbolt 3. The aluminum case looks smart and offers good heat distribution.
