Glyph Technologies PortaGig 50 - 750GB (7200 RPM) – No Longer Available

Bus-Powered Pocket Drive FireWire 800, USB 2.0, eSATA - 750GB (7200 RPM)
MFR# PG501B-750

Product Description

The Glyph PortaGig 50 builds on the success of the PortaGig 800, and adds a couple cool new features. Bus-powered with FireWire 800 or USB for optimum compatibility, it also includes an eSATA port for the fastest speed possible, up to 100MB/s. eSATA is not a bus-powered interface, however, you can use the eSATA connection for data transfer while simultaneously using the FireWire 800 connection to power the drive. This allows the fastest connection possible AND bus power from FireWire. An external power supply is included with the PortaGig 50 if bus power is not available.

Even though it's tiny, PortaGig 50 can support high-track count audio sessions and bandwidth-intensive video. Glyph Manager software constantly monitors the drive and enclosure health, notifying you if there is a problem, allowing you to work on the road easily and reliably.

Connectivity
The PortaGig 50 has a small, portable, aluminum case and runs quietly with its fanless design. Connected by FireWire 800, USB or eSATA, it reports the drive's health and temperature as a background task using Glyph Manager, notifying you if your drive needs attention. PortaGig 50 has a rear power switch, uses an Oxford 934 chip, and is finished off with a classic Glyph styling and a stainless steel face plate. Designed for field recording, moving audio, video, graphics, and prepress files, it includes a universal power supply and a carrying sleeve.

Speeds and Performance
PortaGig 50 drives are available in 7,200 and 5,400 RPM, and use exclusively Seagate SATA II hard disk mechanisms. Seagate drives live up to their reputation for performance, quality, and durability. All models of the PortaGig 50 perform well in an audio environment, however the 7,200 RPM models have slightly higher track counts compared to the 5,400 RPM models due to their higher transfer rates.

Tested and Approved
The PortaGig 50 has been qualified with Digidesign Pro Tools™ to support over 70 tracks of 24bit / 48k audio, with edits.

The Warranty
The best warranty in the industry includes a 3 Year Full Warranty, 2 Years of Free Level I Data Recovery, and 1 Year of Free Overnight Advance Replacement.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
