Glyph-Technologies 500GB PortaGig FireWire-800 Portable Hard Drive 500GB in your pocket. This tiny bus-powered hard drive weighs 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, it 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. Now with G-Shock Protection Let's say you're on location recording multi-track audio, or transferring massive amounts of video from P2 cards to your PortaGig 800. Now let's say you accidentally bump the drive and it falls off the table. You'll be happy to know that all 7,200-RPM PortaGig models come with G-Force Protection, which parks the heads when a fall is detected, protecting your data.

Connectivity The PortaGig has a small, portable, aluminum case and runs quietly with its fanless design. It has two FireWire 800 ports and one USB 2.0 port, a fast internal SATA II drive, Oxford 934 chip, and a rear power switch. 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 800 drives are available in 7,200 and 5,400 RPM models and use only Seagate brand hard disk mechanisms. Seagate drives live up to their reputation for performance, quality, and durability. All models of the PortaGig 800 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. Shock Protection All 7,200-RPM PortaGig models come with G-Force Protection, Seagate’s unique safety feature perfectly suited to the realities of portable recording because of its extra robustness. G-Force Protection uses a drop sensor to detect that the drive is in free fall, and moves the read/write heads to safety before a shock takes place in falls of greater than 8 inches (nominal). This process provides protection against shock that may occur while the drive is operating, and is designed to decrease the likelihood of data loss. Tested and Approved The PortaGig 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.
