Glyph Technologies PG50SB-128 hard drive specifications

Glyph PortaGig SSD - hard drive - 128 GB - FireWire 800 / Hi-Speed USB

PortaGig SSD has a distinct advantage over standard 2.5" HDDs since it's made of solid-state memory and has no moving parts, and therefore eliminates the possibility of mechanical failure resulting from vibration, shock, and heat. In remote production situations, this means your PortaGig SSD can operate reliably for more hours, in hotter environments, and under rougher conditions. Absolutely no noise is generated from the PortaGig SSD, and much less power is needed for operation, which means less heat is generated as well. This also provides substantial weight savings. PortaGig SSD drives have extremely fast access speeds, making them a perfect match for remote audio and video work. In an audio environment, you'll experience ridiculous playback performance, even at high edit density.
