Who needs a Glyph?
I've had an older version (no USB 3.0, just Firewire 800 and USB 2.0) of this Quadra for over 3 years now. Its performed FLAWLESSLY. That little blue thing that you think is just an indicator light? That's actually a button. You can assign it to open any application you like... I call it the Pro Tools button. It has an auto mode so it'll fall asleep and wake up with your computer, built like a tank, a little heavy and not great for travel but you should know that's not a portable HD. I'm about to buy this new one and get the option rack ears kit and rack both my Quadra's. Cannot beat it, I swear you'll fall in love with this drive and you can trust that it wont fail for a very very long time.
