It's rather unrealistic to expect any drive to be TOTALLY silent... although I must say my Glyph drive is, in my opinion, astonishingly quiet. A few simple precautions keep any fan noise out of my recordings, which are made in the same room as the computer and two external fan-cooled drives. The drives both reside on shelves under my desk, with just a little acoustic foam on the surfaces close to them, as well as some other sound-absorbent office supplies like stacks of paper nearby (taking care not to block the vents on the drives, of course). I've been very satisfied with the Glyph drive, which set up perfectly the first time and has always behaved as one would hope.
My iTunes collection also resides on it, and despite the immense number of files, access has been much, much faster with the Glyph drive than with my consumer-level LaCie Quadra 2. I was also very excited that the variety of connection options on the Glyph helped me cope with the dearth of Firewire ports on my Mac; right now I'm running my MOTU traveler into the Glyph's FW400 port, then the Glyph's FW800 port to the Mac... works incredibly well. I'm currently planning to buy two more Glyph drives for video and archiving. Anyhoo, I don't claim to be an expert on peripherals by any means, but I must say I've been completely satisfied with my Glyph drive and feel it was an excellent purchase, and one I would heartily recommend to anyone.
Sturdy, reliable drive that won't failPublished on 01/10/11 at 21:50
This is a high performance drive in every sense of the word. It's very fast and it works great. I've never had a problem with it jittering or taking too long to load a session. It's also never crashed on me, making it one of the few besides my LaCie drive to do that. This is a big deal, as a drive that never crashes is a godsend to a working recording engineer, or even somebody who just has a lot of stuff on their drives.
Basically, this is invaluable and at such a good price nowadays (who knew drives would get so cheap after they were so expensive for so long?) there's no excuse for not having a good drive. Other than, of course, not having any drives at all. This is worth checking out, because even if it does break its guaranteed to be fixed for free by the warranty. A good purchase all around.
