Overview

The Glyph GT 050Q is housed in a fixed-mount tabletop unit. The 1TB quad interface hard drive builds upon the success of the original GT 050 and adds FireWire 800, eSATA, and USB ports. Designed for high-speed access to audio and video content, while at the same time offering flexible connectivity options, the Glyph GT 050Q is one of the most reliable drives on the market today. The GT 050Q drive's durable design features an internal power supply, whisper-quiet fan, and 1/8" thick brushed stainless steel face plate.

The scratch-resistant, black powder-coated aluminum chassis offers additional heat transfer properties while allowing the drive to still be lightweight and portable. The Glyph GT 050Q features a 1TB Seagate SATA 7,200 RPM drive, with an average seek time of 8ms, maximum transfer rate of 150MB/s, and sustained transfer rate greater than 70MB/s. Glyph GT 050Q also comes standard with a three-year warranty that includes overnight advance replacement in the first year.

The GT050Q is compatible with both Mac and Windows, as well as tested and approved by Digidesign for use with Pro Tools LE, Pro Tools HD, and Pro Tools M-Powered.

changing the game!

Comments about Glyph GT 050Q 1TB Quad Interface External/FireWire/USB Hard Drive:

We got this to use as a dedicated hard drive for our music. Everything is running so much faster and better now! Of course, the true test is how long it will actually last, but I have a good feeling about this one. Definitely recommend it!

Great Customer Service

By John Cimino

from Philipsburg, PA

Comments about Glyph GT 050Q 1TB Quad Interface External/FireWire/USB Hard Drive:

I have a Glyph GT Series hard drive that crashed recently. I contacted customer service, and they paid to have the drive shipped to their facility, serviced it, and returned it to me free of charge, all within a week. Best of all, they were able to save my data. I would give them 5 stars for support, and I plan on buying another Glyph for my next drive. Highly recommended!

Solid drive, amazing company

By C Holford

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Glyph GT 050Q 1TB Quad Interface External/FireWire/USB Hard Drive:

This is my second Glyph 50Q, the first being one i bought at the beginning of the line's introduction. That one finally went south on me as is inevitable, and I didn't have a thought to change to another brand, because Glyph's customer service is unparalleled in my experience. They are the most "reachable" tech company I've ever dealt with, and when I had problems with my Glyph drive it was incredibly easy to get help, either in the form of support or an RMA to return for repairs. Even if the drive lets you down occasionally, the company never will!

Great hard drive

By Cory

from cottage grove mn

Comments about Glyph GT 050Q 1TB Quad Interface External/FireWire/USB Hard Drive:

This drive is very solid and the carrying case that comes with it is also really nice. I use the fw800 connection but it is nice that there is also the option for fw400, usb, and esata. My data transfers have gone over smoothly and quickly. My only problem is the price. I've been told you can get 1tb seagates with fw800 for much cheaper but I've never actually found one myself. Definitely going to get the rackmount kit for this one even though gc doesn't sell them..hint hint
