Glyph Technologies S8000 overview

  • 1Description

Designed as production-grade media, the 8TB 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 8TB 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 S8000 reviews

    8TB Studio 7200 rpm USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great brand, solid drives. I use an array of Glyph drives for backup and production purposes, and they've never failed me. I had one (smaller, older) Glyph drive get corrupted, but a wipe-and-reformat returned it to prime working condition. I've used other drive brands in the past, and Glyph seems to be the hardiest.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loud Seeking Noise We had purchased 3 of these drives to be used as media backups placed on the desks of our workstations. We had specifically bought these because these were touted as quiet drives. When I spun these drives up I noticed that they were not quiet, but quite loud. The sound a drive makes when it's seeking or writing, only this made it when it idled. I recorded the sound and sent it Glyph. They had suggested it was a fan, but I tested to see if it was by sticking a toothpick in the vent to stop the fan. Sure enough, sound was still there and quite noticeable. We sent back all two of the three drives because one did not make that sound. Received two more, both made the noise, Glyph again said to return. These are not quiet drives, and the noise is not the fan but the drive itself. We opted to replace the Glyph drives with Lacie D2s and have so far been much happier.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad Decline We used a half dozen of these which were fine and then the last three we purchased had a high pitched whine will idle. Oddly, while actually transferring footage they don't whine. The noise is loud enough to give anyone near by a headache. Something is flawed in the recent production of these drives. Back to lacie or g-tech I suppose.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glyph 8TB Drive Noise There is a -24 db noise at around 1k. You can see what ever that is making the noise cycle then you will have a dead spot where you would expect the max noise to be then it starts up cycling again. The drive is not being accessed. I called the manufacture and the Tech said that this was the second call that day with the same issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again but possibly with greater storage capac This external hard drive houses all my photos.
