Introducing the Glyph PortaGig 62 Portable RAIDs

Videoguys now carries Glyph's new portable RAID-protected storage device, the PortaGig 62 . Modeled after Glyph’s successful GT 062E, a larger desktop RAID, the 1/2/3TB PortaGig 62 has two 5400RPM drives inside, and is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. A quiet internal fan provides maximum airflow and proper cooling - critical to the performance and reliability of the components.

Bus-powered with FireWire 800, the PortaGig 62 also includes USB and eSATA ports for optimum compatibility, allowing you to easily work on the road with a reliable RAID. Although eSATA is not a bus- powered interface, you can use the eSATA connection for the fastest data transfer speeds (up to 177MB/s) while simultaneously using the FireWire 800 connection to bus-power the drive. An external power supply is included with the PortaGig 62 if bus-power is insufficient or not available.

PortaGig 62 is available in capacities ranging from $289 for the 1TB model, $399 for the 2TB modael and $645 for the 3TB model.

PortaGig 62 can be configured in one of three drive modes: RAID 0, RAID 1, and Spanning. It also includes Glyph Manager, which constantly monitors the drives, and reports their health to you. If a problem is detected, the front LED will blink red, and Glyph Manager software will alert you on screen, allowing you to backup your data before any is lost. No other portable drive has a diagnostic utility as smart as Glyph Manager.

As with all Glyph drives, the PortaGig 62 carries a comprehensive support plan: We include a 3-Year warranty, 2-Year Free Basic Data Recovery Policy, and 1-Year Advance Replacement (Continental 48 States).
