Awesome external drive!

I loved this drive. It is so portable and easy to use.

Great Hard Drive!

This thing is small. A lot smaller than the original models. I was surprised how tiny the box was when it came in the mail.It seems to be working very well. It doesn't require a power cable which makes a laptop and hard drive easy to move anywhere. It works best if you turn it on plugged in before you start up your computer. That way it connects much better.Great job on Glyph's part again, they have always made very trusting hardware. Thanks Sweetwater, best musical equipment service out there!


Great external hard drive with super fast speed!

This is Progress

Many drives have come and gone in our radio production studio, but we've standardized on Glyph in recent years, and for good reason: they're the best. This little guy represents a new leap forward because it is SO small, SO fast, needs no power cable and is SILENT. Paired with an SSD Mac Mini, it makes for a rocking' little DAW.

Sweetwater Advice


Recently I found it was time to update the hard drives in my new studio. The old drives were getting filled to capacity, and I had added a couple of mega-sized drives for archiving, iTunes, and so on. But with my new studio, which is a very quiet space, a problem became apparent: those drives were surprisingly noisy! My search for a storage solution led me to Glyph's latest offering, the Studio mini series. The Studio minis are compact, bus-powerable (a power adapter is optional) drives offering USB 3.0, FireWire 800, and eSATA connectivity. There are 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB sizes available, with solid-state versions coming soon. I picked up a couple of 1TB drives: one for recording and playing audio sessions and the other for virtual instrument libraries. I've been super pleased with them! They rotate at 7,200 RPM, deliver tons of simultaneous tracks (I haven't topped them out yet), and effortlessly power soft synth libraries. Best of all, they're quiet -- I mean whisper quiet. The Studio mini drives feature heat transfer technology to draw heat from internal components, while custom sensors monitor the health of the drive. Plus, the whole thing is covered by a 3-year warranty with 2-year free basic data recovery and 1-year advanced replacement. And, they're small enough to easily throw in a bag for portable use. These things rock.
