Small enough to fit into a pocket yet powerful enough to support high track-count audio sessions.

Glyph started with their hugely popular FireWire 400 PortaGig and upgraded it with two FireWire 800 ports, a fast internal SATA II drive, Oxford 934 chip, and a rear power switch. They've also upgraded the warranty to three years and included coverage under Glyph's Overnight Advance Replacement policy. The Glyph PortGig 800 is a tiny bus-powered hard drive weighing less than 10 ounces, but is powerful enough to support high track-count audio sessions, and has been tested and approved with Digidesign Pro Tools. Designed with a fanless, light aluminum enclosure, the portable hard drive allows you to work on the road easily and reliably. If bus power is not available or is insufficient, you can use the included power supply.

Speeds and Performance
The Glyph PortaGig 800 drives are available in 7,200 and 5,400 RPM models. All models of the PortaGig 800 perform well in an audio environment, however the 7,200 RPM models have slightly higher track count compared to the 5,400 RPM models due to their higher transfer rates.

USB and Bus Power
The included USB cable is a "Y" cable: one end connects to the drive and two ends can be connected to the computer. In some situations, a single USB port will not supply enough USB bus power for the Glyph PortaGig 800, and two computer USB ports are needed. Due to differing bus power specs, the safest choice is to use the PortaGig 800 hard drive with the included DC power supply. Additionally, the DC power supply should be used with PortaGig 800 in capacities of 200GB or higher.
