The 512 GB PortaGig 50 Portable Solid State Drive from Glyph Technologies is a fast, powerful and compact portable solid state drive designed for media professionals. With dual FireWire 800 ports, a USB 2.0 port and an eSATA port, the portable drive can connect to a wide variety of devices. The drive supports a bus-powered option, or can be powered using the provided AC adapter. PortaGig 50 SSD allows seek times as low as 0.1 ms. Boasting up to 3 Gbps data transfer rate and 512 GB of space, the PortaGig 50 SSD is a high-quality drive for all your media needs.

The PortaGig 50 SSD is a small, portable, high-quality storage device. With a 512 GB hard drive space, up to 3 Gbps data transfer rate and seek time as low as 0.1 ms, it has a distinct advantage over standard 2.5" HDDs. It is made of solid-state memory, thus eliminating the possibility of mechanical failure resulting from vibration, shock or heat. In remote production situations, the PortaGig 50 SSD can operate reliably for a greater number of hours, in hot environments and under rough conditions. An added advantage is that with no moving parts on the SSD, it has near-instantaneous read access time. Thus, you can enjoy virtually immediate data delivery.
Engineered with a fanless aluminum enclosure, PortaGig 50 SSD is bus powered and very light. If bus power is unavailable or insufficient, you may use the included power supply. Weighing a mere 0.4 lb, the PortaGig 50 SSD features two FireWire 800 ports, one eSATA port, one USB 2.0 port and a rear power switch. It is designed around the industry-proven Oxford 934 chip.
Superior Performance in an Audio Environment
PortaGig 50 SSD drives boast extremely fast access speeds, which makes them ideal for remote audio / video work. In an audio environment, you will enjoy awesome playback performance, even at high edit density. Using their Digidesign Pro Tools test sessions (playback only), Glyph had a hard time finding the limits of the PortaGig 50 SSD. To compare, their PortaGig 50 (using a 7,200 rpm HDD) reliably plays 26 tracks of 48 kHz/24-bit audio with 3 edits/second across each track. The PortaGig 50 SSD, however, plays 128 tracks in this scenario-over 100 tracks higher than the standard PortaGig 50, at the hardest edit density.
Quiet and Green Operation
The PortaGig 50 SSD is noise-free, consumes far less power and generates less heat. These features provide significant savings on weight.
Long Life
The built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) functionality ensures reliable data transfer. Moreover, the SSD comes with wear leveling technology that redirects writes to less frequently-used areas, for longer life span and data retention.
Content Creation Applications
PortaGig 50 SSD is compatible with Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress, Adobe Premiere, Digidesign Pro Tools, Steinberg Nuendo and Cubase, Apple Logic, MOTU Digital Performer, Cakewalk Sonar and Sony Vegas.
Unique Heat Transfer Technology
It draws heat from internal components and transports it to an aluminum exterior to dissipate, thus minimizing the likelihood of component failure.
Health Monitoring Built-In
PortaGig 50 SSD reports the drive's health and temperature as a background task with Glyph Manager, thus notifying you if your drive requires attention.
