Glyph Technologies S3000 overview

  • 1Description

Designed as production-grade media, the 3TB 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 3TB 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 S3000 reviews

    3TB Studio 7200 rpm USB 3.1 Gen 1 External Hard Drive is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good!! I just bought this drive to house a backup for my entire w internal drives, and have had it for only a few weeks, and so far I love it - it's fast and the tech department of Glyph is wonderful! The drive is formatted for Mac but I needed PC and I had no trouble reaching a real person in their tech department. One of the technicians was terrific, answered questions I had, walked me through the format procedure and even gave me his phone number if I needed help. Terrific!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3TB Glyph is worth the extra $$ I purchased this 3TB Glyph drive for use in video editing, after a 3TB G-Drive was giving me problems. The extra cost is negligible and to me is worth it. When I have clients that I need to deliver projects to, it's a huge hassle to be on the phone with tech support and running to the store for exchanges. For me, the Glyphs have never given me any issues and although I keep all my media backed up on a separate drive, the free data recovery is huge. I also like the look and shape of the drive, which fits nicely on my desk. Because it's not a RAID the drive does go to sleep when you haven't been using it, but I find that it takes longer to do so, and wakes up much faster, compared to the G-Drive. The only reason I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5 is that I don't like that it automatically turns on when you plug the drive in. I'd rather have control over that function.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I use this drive as the Time Machine backup disk for my laptop running OS X Yosemite; it works nicely. With the drive on my desk, I can still hear the cooling fan, but I don't mind it. I think the device is well designed (easy-to-use and looks good), and it has a good warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio critical path and performance i have been using Glyphs for a few years on my Mac (FCP) ... switched to Windows and Adobe CC (Premiere) for several reasons. On a recommendation from an associate (different studio), I bought G-Tech as it had thunderbolt and i wanted a little future proof. When i received the G-Tech, had nothing but fails from trying to reformat to for windows as well as encoding to and editing with. returned it defective within 2 days (i wrote a scathing review on the thunderbolt 3TB G-Tech that B&H hasn't posted yet that i can see). So, i got what i should have gotten in the first place. connected USB3 (via 7 port USB3 hub), Reformatted quick, encoded no issues, editing as it should be - fast, rendered fast, published job within 2 days of receiving drive - although two weeks later than scheduled having to wait for RMA and new drive. Glyph for life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from dependable For field storage this is a great option, I have 5 drives that I cycle around and they have been put through the wringer! a few of my drives have crossed the continent overland multiple times and they are just as dependable as day 1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Audio Drive! I've had an older model of this drive for around 3 years now -- the GPT50 -- and it's held up extremely well despite constant use. I work in professional audio and sometimes have the drive running for 10 - 12 hours straight and it's still working just fine. The newer Studio version is an improvement on an already great drive (the older GPT50). The first thing I noticed is that it's considerably quieter than the GPT50. That's not to say that either the older or newer versions are noisy, just that the newer Studio version is in fact quieter. Also, the older GPT50 model has a REALLY bright power light on the front panel. I actually ended up putting painters tape over mine so that it wouldn't cause any more spots in my eyes after sitting in front of it. The newer Studio version has fixed this (somewhat minor) design problem -- there's still a small blue light to show power and/or activity, but it's much smaller and not nearly as bright so it's no longer an issue. Glyphs are great for media use (audio, video, etc.) with their 7,200 rpm drives, and with the new Studio version they've made some nice improvements on an already solid and dependable drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! What a great drive! Silent, fast, unobtrusive and a fabulous warranty My previous 3T Glyph drive lasted 5 years being used daily as cache for Bridge and half full with all my final image files. Getting files off it at the end was pretty painful, but the manufacturer's offer to recover the remainder of the files and provide me with a replacement drive, even 2 years after the end of the warranty period, was too good to pass up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice update Nice update to the old gpt50 design. Quiet and so far secure.Only 4 v. 5 stars based on an older glyph that I had that was sent in under warranty and came back not fixed, same mounting issue. So I can't have faith in the great warranty that is part of the product.
