Glyph GPT50 (1TB)Not too much to write about this one. It already comes with great expectations and it deserves its reputation. Great Glyph as usual.
You can depend on Glyph to be the best.

Splendid driveThis is a splendid little drive, just right for my iMac with its 500GB internal drive. The case is solid, and I like the idea of a built-in power supply and fan; other external drives I've used had plastic cases and got pretty warm. This one stays cool to the touch. And it is quiet -- I have it right on my desk top, and can just barely hear the drive itself spinning; the fan is virtually silent, and there is no hum from the power supply.
I plugged the drive into my iMac and the two machines were talking to each other within a few seconds. Within two additional minutes, I had the Glyph configured as a backup drive, and 30 minutes later, my Mac was backed up. It really was that easy. I am impressed!
So, why only 4.5 stars and not five? I have no idea how reliable the drive will be, and this is my first Glyph. All other external drives I've used have been DOA or crashed within two years, but since Glyph gets the best web reviews for external hard drives, I have high hopes for it. How will it be doing in two or three years? Only time will tell.
