Glyph Technologies External HDD Reviews

Frequently Ejects and Remounts

By Anonymous
Rated 1 out of 5

The drive I purchased, as many others have discovered, turns itself off and then back on, sometimes frequently (even before being connected to a computer). I filed an RMA and returned it to Glyph. They claimed they could not replicate the problem, but sent me a replacement. The replacement drive was even more defective and erratic. I tried many different solutions, but eventually just removed the actual drive itself and am now using it (without any problems or issues) with a relatively inexpensive enclosure I bought from B&H. The Glyph BlackBox Pro must have some defective component in its power supply assembly.

My first look at a glyph was in a music catalogue a few years back; I just had to give one a go sometime. It's my time machine, and so far all is well. B & H is becoming a go to place for me .

The drive is the highest capacity I own. It has a fast read/write speed and quick internal drive mechanism as well. I am using it to back up a large OneDrive and Sharepoint server online to have a local copy. I have backed up 4 TB and still have lots of room to spare.

Great drive! I've owned another Glyph and it has performed great. This one is bigger and I'll be using it to make sure it's as good. Easy drive to work with.

Reliable - Dependable - Great

This is my 8th glyph drive. These are incredibly reliable drives. Every time I need to have my data backed up and backed up again these have never let me down. I have 4 of these Blackbox pros. (14Tb and 20Tb) Each of them has been exceptionally reliable. The speed of these drives is very good at approximately 260 MBS. The outside skin feels like silicone rubber.They look pretty cool on my desk. They just barely get warm after about 12 hours of writing to them. They are durable enough to use as a portable drive,. If you need a portable or desktop drive these do the trick. Enjoy!

Works well

Worked first day and never worked properly again

I was excited to finally invest in a Glyph external hard drive for backing up my work. The intention was to consolidate a number of smaller drives. I am relieved I didn't get too far in the process when the Glyph drive stopped working on day 2. The drive would eventually come on after about an hour or so of being plugged in but eventually even that stopped happening. From what I read, there has been a bad batch of drives from Glyph this cycle. I probably should have heeded the warnings but was lucky to not suffer a data catastrophe. I returned it and bought a Lacie Professional drive and have been very happy.
