Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
We started with the GT050Q, a rock-solid product with 6-years of success, and redesigned it to be smaller, more featured, and more environmentally friendly. 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 our GT050Q making it more portable and convenient. And we've moved to smaller, environmentally-friendly packaging which means less waste.
A cool drive is a healthy drive - The GTP50 uses a temperature-controlled fan making it overall quieter than our 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 wallwarts - 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.
Optional Rack-mount kits - Transform your GPT50 into a 1U rack-mount hard drive with the optional GPT Rack Kit. The rack kit holds one or two drives in a 1U rack space. (Sold separately). Note: GPT Rack Kit is designed for GPT Series drives, such as GPT50. For GT Series drives, such as GT050Q and GT062E, use the GT Series rack kits.
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.
Triple Interface - 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.
