Glyph Technologies S2000 overview

  • 1Description

Designed as production-grade media, the 2TB Studio 7200 rpm USB 3.0 External Hard Drive from Glyph Technologies features a hard drive that spins at 7200 rpm and has a capacity of 2TB for storing data such as videos, images, music, and more. The Studio has one USB 3.0 Type-B port, one eSATA port, and two FireWire 800 ports to connect to either Windows or Mac systems. Using either one of these connections, you can expect data transfer rates of up to 184 MB/s to access your content. Glyph Technologies also supports content creation products such as AVID, Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo, Cubase, DP, Adobe CC, and more. Included with the Studio is a USB 3.0 cable, a FireWire 800 cable, and an IEC power cable. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year advance replacement warranty, a limited 2-year level 1 data recovery warranty, and a limited 3-year hardware warranty.

General Features

Front Panel LED
The Studio's front panel has a single bi-color LED. The LED will display solid blue when power is on and will flash blue when there is disk activity. The LED will display red if there is a hard drive failure.
Power Switch
The power switch must be held for three seconds to power off the Studio. After three seconds the LED will turn off, and releasing the button will power off the unit. This is a safety precaution against unintended power off.
Internal Power Supply
Glyph uses efficient, high-quality power supplies, selected specifically for the demands of production environments. The Studio has an auto-switching universal power supply. Its input voltage can range from 100-240V at 50/60 Hz, allowing the Studio to be safely used overseas.
Disk Health Monitoring
Each hard drive is continually monitored for temperature changes and if the drive is deteriorating, you can replace it before it fails.
Internal Temperature-Controlled Fan
The Studio has an internal temperature-controlled fan. Software inside the Studio sets the fan's rpm to either high or low speeds.
Rack Mounting
The Studio can be rack mounted in a standard 19" rack with Glyph's optional rack kits. There is a single kit for mounting one drive, and a dual kit for mounting two Studio drives.
Content Creation Applications
Qualified with major audio production packages that support FireWire storage, including Digidesign ProTools, Steinberg Nuendo and Cubase, Apple Logic, MOTU Digital Performer, Cakewalk Sonar, Sony Vegas, and more.
Warranty with Data Recovery and Replacement
Glyph Technologies offers you a limited 3-year warranty, but offers different services during the first, second, and third year. During the first year's advance replacement warranty, Glyph Technologies will send you another Studio before they receive the defective model. For up to 2 years, they will provide data recovery, and hardware is covered up to 3 years.

    Glyph Technologies S2000 reviews

    2TB Studio 7200 rpm USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but not perfect I have owned other Glyph hard drives that work flawlessly for years. They are one of the few truly excellent hard drives out there. I purchased the Glyph Studio because I was disappointed with the lack of an on/off switch on the Seagate 2TB that are available. Well guess what, although the Glyph Studio does have a button switch on the front it also defaults to what Glyph calls auto-sensing. Which means that if you have the drive plugged into your computer it will automatically turn on when you turn on your computer, which is exactly what I did not want. I have my computer on ten hours a day but I don't access the hard drive all those hours or even everyday. Having auto-sensing increase wear-and-tear unnecessarily. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I contacted Glyph about the auto-sensing and they will release a drive update this November (2014) that gives you a choice if you want auto-sensing active or inactive. Other than that issue I cannot recommend them enough. Glyph drives are outstanding in build quality. Their telephone tech support is amazing and they answer your emails promptly. Try getting anything like that out of Seagate; you will weep.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hard Drive! I am a film and video producer, currently still in school in Chicago. I have ordered this drive for all of my projects based on the advice from a faculty member at our school. It is extremely reliable and working with B&H is awesome. They are extremely helpful. It backs itself up internally, so it makes sure that nothing is lost. It really is a great drive and everyone I work with in post loves using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still going strong I had written a review on this before but now after a 16 months I am so pleased with the performance of the Glyph I thought it was time for an update. It is fast, reliable, and very quiet (something I really value) and perfect for archiving. The on button in front is also the shut-down button if held-in for two seconds. A very good buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, very fast I bought this product mainly because I work with music and I wanted to have files as well as plugins that I use for my software on an external drive. My old drive was to slow to handle the plugins - this one is great and very fast. What's great: - it was easy to set up (pre-configured for macs) - it is fast - it is robust & solid What is not so great: - it's larger than I expected :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok It's got the power source inside it so it's a little heavier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the little things! It's sturdy, fast, and beautifully designed. I can't imagine doing audio or video work without one of these drives.
