High-performance, environmentally friendly desktop hard drive.
Glyph’s GPT50 is a rock-solid desktop drive that is smaller, more featured, and more environmentally friendly then the previous GT050Q model. Featuring next-generation Oxford bridging technology, the GPT50 is the newest member of Glyph's portable drive family. Think of it as the big brother to the PortaGig50, with an internal power supply and quiet fan. It's 33% smaller than the GT050Q making it more portable and convenient. And Glyph has moved to smaller, environmentally friendly packaging which means less waste.
A cool drive is a healthy drive
The GPT50 uses a temperature-controlled fan making it overall quieter than previous designs while still offering proper cooling. The case is designed with front-panel ventilation holes to draw cool air in, while exhausting warm air out the back - critical to the performance and reliability of the components.
Nobody likes wall-warts
They are easily misplaced, or accidentally unplugged from the drive, and take up valuable outlet space. The GPT50 uses an industry-standard power cord and pro-quality internal power supply for the most efficient and reliable power source possible.
Keeping your data safe
The GPT50 boasts new features designed to keep your data safe. The intelligent power switch must be held for 3 seconds to power off the drive, guarding against unintended power-off. The multifunction LED shows drive power, activity, and also warns of a failing hard drive.
The GPT50 provides all the ports you'd possibly need. With FireWire 800, USB 2.0 and eSATA options, you can connect the GPT50 to your external interface of choice.
