    Great External Drive, Fast,

    I purchased this Glyph Studio drive because I wanted to isolate my DAW music and user files to a separate disk from my SSD hard drive on my Windows 10 PC. I must say it is really fast! I used eSATA to connect it to my PC as it was one of the few drives that offered an eSATA connection (that's all I had available on my PC). It actually offers 3 different connectivity options (eSATA, Firewire 800, and USB 3.0). Since it's pre-formatted for the Apple file system, I did have to reformat the drive for use by Windows, but it was really easy using the instructions from the Glyph's website. I would highly recommend this great drive. Oh, and since I got a 2TB drive, I'm also using it for various other backup/recovery tasks as well.

    Whisper quiet!

    Ultimately I feel that the best time to write a review of a hard drive would be after 6 months or so, but after two months I can say that this thing has been totally speedy and dependable, and barely makes any noise whatsoever, a huge improvement over my old external that whined like crazy! I went with Glyph because of their reputation for building rock-solid drives, and so far that has been the case.

    Studio Glyph- mighty room

    It does what it's suppose to do! Super fast, super quiet! You'll have to format it for use with a PC- but, it was really no problem. It's a solid piece of gear! Glad I spent a little more for it- don't think I would be happy with a cheaper alternative. Sweetwater Rocks! I choose them for all my gear! Muscle Shoals, baby!

    Who could ask for more?

    Great service. Fast delivery. Glyph Studio works like a charm. Plus, a little lagniappe of magazines and candy. Wowza! Thanks, Sweetwater!

    Very quiet

    This thing is very quiet compared to the 1TB. Nice! Just a little white noise (not even noticeable with a condensor mic in the room) whereas I had extend a cable to get the 1TB out of the recording room completely.

    Glyph Studio - 2TB

    The hard drive is working great. Had trouble setting up the partition on my windows desktop.The directions given by Glyph on their website did not match what I was seeing on my screen. Called Sweetwater tech help and they were excellent.Had it up and running in a matter of minutes.

    I have purchased Glyph products for the past three years. I don't understand why anyone would buy a hard disk drive from any other manufacturer. I have one drive that has been running non-stop for three years. The only reason I rated them with a 4.5 is that I never give out the highest rating for anything.

    Keep away from your MAC!

    I've had this Glyph Studio for 2 years now. I use it for my MAC Time Machine backup and it works well overall. I had one failure where I lost all my backup data and had to disk repair the Glyph, but I still had the data on my original drive to restore.

    BE CAREFUL where you place this in your studio. This device will interfere with your bluetooth devices. After two years of not being able to use my magic mouse because it was jittery and slow responding, I stumbled upon an article discussing bluetooth interference. This drive causes interference if placed too close to your MAC. Once I moved the Glyph out from under my MAC Mini, everything worked like it should. Too bad it took me so long to discover the problem. Good luck!

    Glyph Studio Pros and Cons

    Got this one from Sweetwater few weeks ago.
    -Beautiful design
    -No noise AT ALL
    -Built like a tank
    -Convenient 1U shape
    -Really frustrating installation (took me 2 days to figure out how to do it)
    Definitely the best one out there at the 200-300 bucks price range.
    The installation, being the way it is, does not really affect the final result.

    wishful thinking

    I've been trying to get my hard drive working for two weeks now, with no success...Sweetwater tech support has been helpful, but unsuccessful at getting the glyph to work on my computer...still on the hunt!

    Worked great except, i kept getting the error message "disk ejected improperly" randomly every hour or so, it would automatically reconnect almost immediately but each time this would happen my audio files would be all messed up so if i hadn't saved recently i would be starting over which is very frustrating. Tech support told me to try a different USB cable which i did and have no problems so far.
