    Glyph Technologies BBPR4000ENT reviews

    4TB Blackbox Pro Enterprise Class 7200 rpm USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C External Hard Drive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good It's really fast and very well made. I use the drive as a storage drive for master image files (.dngs and .fff). The packaging is minimal and straight to the point. It has noise and slight vibration, no doubt but this is no issue for me. I do have some intermittent connection issues, it wont appear on my Mac Pro (this might be more of a Mac Pro problem). This is not this drive but all drives and I wont ever understand why there is not two power/connection lights, front and near the on/off switch. It's odd to me to set up the drive in a manner where I set up to to access the power/ usb/ on-off but the light is away from me?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Construction I like So far very impressed. I favor quality construction over looks and this drive does not disappoint. It's heavy enough I'm not concerned about accidentally knocking it off the table. It comes with all the cables you need and well packaged. I'm using a PC Workstation with USB-3.0. I immediately backed up about a terabyte of data almost non-stop. The drive was quick and responsive. It was reasonably quiet and became a little warm but nothing alarming. I've since backed up more data no problem. Another nice feature is the on-off switch. When finished with backups I eject drive from Windows taskbar and turn it off. When ready to use again simply turn switch on and Windows 10 finds it immediately. I will purchase another.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Time will tell I bought this mainly on the basis of� some reviews on video production blogs I read; never heard of the company before then. Like many reviewers have said it it LOUD. I bought it specifically because it was advertised as "fanless" but it makes the sound of a small computer fan. It is build like a tank but not sure what value that as with a desktop external hard drive. How likely are you to drop it? I would also say that sending an email question to their website is a waste of time. I asked them three separate times "when will you offer Thunderbolt 3?" .... nothing. So I can't see how to really rate this until I see if it lasts. The week link on many externals is the power source.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for casual video editor I am no electronic expert and when researching external drives, but after spending a few hours researching the glyph drives I was sold. Compared to other brands, the price and features cant be beat with this 4TB Blackbox Pro.� I am using this drive as a time machine backup as well as for limitied video editing in an everyday business environment. I may be different from most users in that I don't have this drive powered on unless I am editing or I want to backup my macbook pro. I don't need to have a backup done multiple times a day or even daily (I use dropbox), so i fire it up twice a week and run a backup. After working with this drive for a couple weeks I have zero complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent overall quality Extremely heavy duty build quality. Excellent construction, fit, finish and packaging. Professional in all aspects. Did not realize these are made and assembled in the USA but you can tell when you look at it. Excellent performance thus far connected to an iMac Pro via USB-C. Utilized for TM backup. Drive noise is noticeable but reasonable. Power switch is a nice feature. If overall reliability is as good as build quality then these drives are outstanding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast of a RAID. Very quiet. So far, very impressed. The case and build is VERY solid. The unit is extremely quiet, especially for running 2 internal disks. But then Glyphs are made to be used in a recording studio environment. You can't beat the warranty and service on the unit either. It was very easy to change from Raid 0, which it was factory set at, to Raid 1, which is 4gb of space and a mirrored instant 4gb mirror or back up. You definitely get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Easy to set up on �MacBook and easy to use (click and drag). My call to the company prior to purchase worked out well-Easy to talk with and gave great advice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made In America Performs very well, no complaints. The 4TB hard drive serves as a backup to my 2TB external drive which holds all my data files. I also use this Glyph drive to back up my application programs which is kept on my laptop's internal 512GB SSD. Using Carbon Cloner I backup all the files onto the Glyph drive. Finally, the fact the drive is made in America is very important to me.
