Huge amount of space for not much $$$. Looks good and is MUCH quieter than the drive it replaces. Transfer speeds are as advertised. Ask me in a year or three... that will be the real test.

Very Misleading for now Mac Users

If you are a Mac User this product will serve you well because it's preformatted for you. However if you are like myself who aren't users of Mac products then you will be surprised that you'll have to format it yourself after trying to figure out which drives are allocated for usage in and which aren't. Outside of that it proves to be very feasible tool to utilize for your photos, videos and documents.

High capacity external hard drive. Quick transfer of data + very quiet. Excellent rubber padding makes it a bit more bulky, but so much more secure, especially when traveling. Would certainly recommend to a friend.

question

I'd like to use this drive for video editing but it doesn't seem to have a cool fan. Has that been a problem for any video editors?
Asked by: Agi F.
The Glyph Technologies 3TB Blackbox Pro 7200 rpm B&H # GLBBPR3000 has passive cooling and does not need a fan to operate. With speeds of up to 220 MB/s, it's well suited for video editing but if you are editing 4K footage with high bitrates, you may need to consider a faster editing drive like a RAID 0 array like the B&H # GLSRTB8ENT which offers speeds of up to 360 MB/s.
