    Glyph Technologies BBPR4000 Reviews

    4TB Blackbox Pro 7200 rpm USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C External Hard Drive is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend As some of the reviewers mention, the device does make some noise while working. This is subjective, but it is not too distracting. It is solid and heavy, which is an advantage to protect valuable work. It looks appealing with rubber encasing. However, the one important detail is the reformatting to Windows. While this is not too difficult, it is not as easy as people keep saying. There was no information on the company website on how this is done. The company does assist in doing the reformatting by phone if contacted by phone.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from WAY TOO NOISY It is alleged that this hard drive is very quiet except for the sound of the disc spinning. NOT TRUE. There is a very distinct and very audible clickety-clack even when the drive is sitting in idle. When the drive is being written to, those clicking sounds are constant and totally aggravating. The Rocstor products blow this one out of the water. Which is too bad, because it has a very nice appearance and seems solidly constructed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rugged But Heavy This item was purchased specifically for storing raw video files to be shot while traveling in different countries. It has vast storage space, which is good because I just got a GoPro Hero 5 and plan to shoot plenty of 4K footage. Its casing is made of thick rubber and feels very solid. I've used it a lot already (only bought it in September), and it seems very robust and reliable. That said, it weighs a ton. I have packed it in suitcases and always have to account for the extra kilograms when planning a flight, because baggage size and weight are so strictly monitored these days. As such, while it qualifies as 'portable,' it's really a behemoth. Simply putting thick rubber on a device and calling it 'portable' is a bit of a stretch. I would never dream of dropping it, for one thing, and for another, it makes too much noise when it's switched on to leave it on all night in your room, for example. You have to switch it off, which means ejecting, etc. For the most part, this drive is going to sit on my desk at home when I'm working with video. I have no serious complaints.
