Triple Interface
This Glyph hard drive provides you with all the ports you need. With FireWire 800, USB 2.0 and eSATA ports, you can connect this Glyph hard drive to your external interface of choice
Internal Power Supply
External power supplies are easily misplaced, accidentally unplugged from the drive and take up valuable outlet space. This Glyph hard drive uses an industry-standard power cord and pro-quality internal power supply for the most efficient and reliable power source possible
Effective Cooling
This Glyph hard drive uses a temperature-controlled fan making it overall quieter while still offering proper cooling. The case is designed with front-panel ventilation holes to draw cool air in, while exhausting warm air out the back, which is critical to the performance and reliability of the components
Optional Rack Mount Kits
Transform this Glyph hard drive into a 1U rack-mount hard drive with the optional GPT Rack Kit. The rack kit holds one or two drives in a 1U rack space (sold separately)
Keep Your Data Safe
This Glyph hard drive boasts new features designed to keep your data safe. The intelligent power switch must be held for 3 seconds to power off the drive, guarding against unintended power-off. The multifunction LED shows drive power, activity and also warns of a failing hard drive
