Glyph Technologies Announces Updated GPT50

August 19th, 2013

Including USB 3.0 Upgrade, Intelligent Power and Cooling, and an Outrageous Warranty

New York, NY - August 19, 2013 - Glyph is pleased to announce a significant upgrade to GPT50, the newest product in a line of rugged tabletop hard drives built for production environments. Based on a 3.5-inch 7200 RPM hard drive, the GPT50 features a sturdy, metal enclosure, USB 3.0, an intelligent internal power supply, and smart-fan. The GPT50 is 33% smaller in size than its predecessor, making it more portable and convenient, and updated recyclable packaging creates less waste. The GPT50 is available with capacities of 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 3TB, and 4TB.

The GPT50 uses a temperature-controlled fan making it overall quieter than previous designs, while still offering excellent cooling. The case is designed with front-panel ventilation holes to draw cool air in, while exhausting warm air out the back - critical to the performance and reliability of the components. “I have a 2TB GPT50 running here on my desktop and it is very quiet,” said Barry Rudolph, in a GPT50 review for Music Connection Magazine (Feb. 2012). “Outside noises and my HVAC are much louder than this drive! Recording very quiet acoustic sounds in the same room-even close to my DAW rig-is now an everyday practice using my new GPT50.”

Many tabletop drives use a proprietary “wall-wart” style power supply. Wall-warts can become easily misplaced, or accidentally unplugged from the drive, and take up valuable outlet space. The GPT50 uses an industry-standard IEC power cord and pro-quality internal power supply for the most efficient and reliable power source possible. With USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 800 ports on the GPT50, users can transfer data over the fastest interface available on their computer. Compatible with Macintosh®, Windows® and UNIX® operating systems, the GPT50 offers great performance with up to 184 MB/sec read and write data transfer rates.

Designed to keep data safe, the intelligent power switch must be held for 3 seconds to power off the GPT50, guarding against unintended power-off. The front-panel multifunction LED shows drive power status, activity, and also warns of a failing hard drive. Additionally, the GPT50 will sense when you connect to your computer via USB or FireWire and automatically power on.  For production environments that require rack-mounted gear, Glyph provides a rack kit to mount one or two GPT50 drives in a single rack space.

“Glyph is headed straight to the top of my recommendation list because of its incredible out-of-the box warranty, which includes one-year of overnight advance replacement in the continental US, two years of free basic data recovery, and a three-year warranty on the drive itself,” said Brady Betzel, in a GPT50 review for Post Magazine (Feb. 2012) “Two years of free data recovery is worth a lot of money in my book. Just the peace of mind that if something goes wrong I have one more level of protection makes the GPT50 drive go to the top of my list of professional and reliable external hard drives.”

Tape Op Reviews PortaGig 62: “We tried to break the Glyph for a few months and simply gave up.”

February 20th, 2012

Tape Op Issue 86

November / December 2011

Read the whole review here

Garrett Haines from Treelady Studios got his hands on a PortaGig 62. “For remote or studio transfer, playback, and recording, the PortaGig 62 handled every production task we threw at it. The small size and various port connections make it more flexible than some other drives in the Glyph family, and the ability to draw power from USB or FW ports is a plus. We tried to “break” the Glyph for a few months and simply gave up. Of course, there is no way to gauge what this drive will do two years down the line, but if you do have a problem, all new Glyph products come with a 3-year warranty that includes advance replacement during the first year and basic data recovery for the remaining 2 years. The one time I’ve ever seen a Glyph drive fail (we dropped it on a concrete floor), we shipped them the drive and they sent a replacement — with all of our data restored on the new drive. Try that with your drive from “MegaMart.”

GPT50 reviewed in Music Connection Magazine: “It is very quiet.”

February 8th, 2012

Long-time Glyph user, Barry Rudolph, takes a look at our new GPT50 for Music Connection. “The GTP50, while still properly cooling, is very quiet. I have a 2TB GPT50 running here on my desktop and it is very quiet–outside noises and my HVAC running are much louder than this drive! Recording very quieter acoustic sounds in the same room–even close to my DAW rig–is now an everyday practice using my new GPT50.”

End of Life notice for carrying case included in GT 050Q, GT 062E, Triplicator

October 31st, 2011

Historically, Glyph’s GT 050Q tabletop drive, GT 062E tabletop RAID drive, and Triplicator have been sold and shipped with a protective carrying case included. In an effort to reduce packaging and waste, Glyph will discontinue shipping these three products with a carrying case beginning in November 2011, and the case will reach end of life. GT 050Q will be the first to ship without a carrying case in early November. While many customers have welcomed the included carrying case, many have expressed that they do not use them, and they end up in the trash. We would like to reduce our impact on the environment and provide only the amount of packaging necessary.

We at Glyph Production Technologies appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you, Glyph

Message from Glyph regarding HDD availability and the Thailand flood disaster

October 25th, 2011

The recent flooding in Thailand is hitting the hard drive manufacturing industry extremely hard. The disaster has shut down 14,000 factories, flooded hundreds of thousands of homes and put more than 660,000 out of work. Thailand accounts for about 25 percent of worldwide HDD production, according to iSuppli.

Glyph uses Seagate and Hitachi drives in our products. Seagate’s facilities were largely spared, but they warn that they could face component shortages, which could cause delays. Hitachi will also face shortages. Western Digital, the world’s largest hard drive manufacturer, got hit the hardest, and has suspended production in all of their Thailand facilities.

Hard drive price and availability from Glyph’s vendors is changing on a daily, if not hourly basis. We expect that that the supply squeeze will extend for months, and shortages will loom into 2012. We also expect that hard drive costs will continue to rise in the next several months.

We will continue to do everything we can to supply the best quality storage products at the most fair price possible, in a timely fashion. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

-Glyph Production Technologies

Matrox tests and qualifies Glyph GT 062E for uncompressed 10-bit editing

September 2nd, 2011

Cortland, NY - September 2, 2011 - Glyph Production Technologies, a highly respected, professional data storage provider, announced today that Matrox has finished testing the GT 062E and has qualified it to support the performance necessary for uncompressed 10-bit editing.

Wayne Andrews, Product Manager in the Matrox Video Products Group, said, “We were very happy with the performance of the GT 062E in our test lab. It’s a perfect storage solution to complement Matrox products supporting resolutions up to and including uncompressed 10-bit.”

Tests were performed on Mac and Windows operating systems, using Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere applications. Matrox and Glyph recommend using the GT 062E connected via eSATA to a fast 4-lane eSATA card such as the Sonnet E4P. The RAID mode of the GT 062E should be set to RAID 0 for the fastest performance possible. RAID mode changes are performed using Glyph Manager, a software application that ships with the GT 062E.

About the GT 062E
The GT 062E has became a standard in production workflows. With capacities up to 6TB, the GT 062E includes an eSATA port, which enables over 200MB/s sustained transfer rate in RAID 0 mode. Connected by FireWire 800 or USB 2.0, the GT 062E reports the health of the two internal drives using Glyph Manager software, which constantly monitors Glyph drives using S.M.A.R.T. (industry-standard drive diagnostics). With dual SATA drives under the hood, an internal power supply and quiet cooling fan, and fault-tolerant RAID modes, the GT 062E has plenty of speed and reliability for demanding content creation applications.

Best Warranty in the Industry
We back up our drives with a 3-Year warranty, 2-Year Free Basic Data Recovery Policy, and 1-Year Advance Replacement (U.S. Continental 48 States only). For details, please visit http://www.glyphtech.com/support
