by Steve Dockendorf from Clearwater, FL USAThis unit has been working fine since I first hooked it up. Instructions are simple to follow. My advice is to locate it with plenty of space around it Not sitting on another heat-generating device... read more [+] such as a Mac mini (as I did - the red light started flashing after a couple of hours and after moving it to a more ventilated spot, no issues to report). I wish all my stuff were this trouble-free. It's fast, does the job and I don't have to think aboit it. close [-]

Glyph PortaGig 50 - Storage in the palm of your hand!
by B.N. from NYCThe hard drive's setup was fast and easy. Hooked up to my Mac book pro in seconds! I carry it in my backpack along with the cables (USB, FireWire and Power).

Amazing for mobile recording, taking files from one studio to another or to use as a main hard drive at home. I use it for mobile recording and taking work to and from different studios. I also have Glyph's GT 050Q. That is my main drive for home studio use. Glyph rocks with ProTools! close [-]

portable, speedy Glyph quality
by peterkeys88 from Encino, CAThis is the hard drive that travels with me when I'm on the road. It rolled around a backpack for 4 tours last year, and still chugs along, as a portable session and sample library drive. There aren... read more [+]'t many 7200rpm bus-powered drives, and the shock protection is a plus for travel, as i've had drives crap out on me before under the same strains. I was disappointed to find it's not USB bus-powered. It does get quite hot if it's working hard. Keep it ventilated, and off surfaces that don't let the heat escape. close [-]
