The new GT 062E.
We started with the best of the original GT 062,
including multiple drive modes selectable with the Glyph Manager
software utility, and added an eSATA port for blazing fast performance.
The GT 062E uses the next generation Oxford 936 chip, and hits over
200MB/s sustained throughput over eSATA in RAID 0 mode. That kind of
speed is perfect for your speed-hungry DAW, or for high-def video
Introducing the smartest Glyph drive yet.
The original GT 062 became a standard in both the
audio and video production worlds. The new GT 062E improves on a good
thing by adding an eSATA port, which enables over 200MB/s sustained
transfer rate in RAID 0 mode. Using Oxford's new 936DSE chip, the GT
062E supports higher capacity drives, allowing RAID 0 and Spanning
capacities up to 4TB. Connected by FireWire 800, USB 2.0, or eSATA
(with Glyph's Highpoint card), the GT 062E reports the health of the
two internal drives using Glyph Manager software. With dual Seagate
SATA drives under the hood, there's plenty of speed for applications
like Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress, and Adobe Premiere. With tons of speed
and reliability, the GT 062E is ideal for audio and video editing,
content creation, and huge sound libraries.
Configurable in Three Drive Modes
RAID 1 offers data redundancy and real-time backup by writing
the same data to the two hard drives at the same time. Should a drive
failure happen, data is still available on the remaining drive.
Similar looks, advanced functionality.
RAID 0 (striping) increases the performance of the drive system
by spreading the data across two drives. RAID 0 is a proven technology
for editing video, working with huge graphics files, sound libraries,
and streaming instruments that play hundreds of samples simultaneously.
RAID 0 is the default shipping drive mode.
Spanning mode simply shows the two internal drives as one large volume.
3TB and 4TB models support Pro Tools® only when configured in RAID 1 mode.
With the GT 062E, Glyph Manager has also greatly
expanded in functionality. A software utility for setting the GT 062E
drive mode, Glyph Manager 4 also displays health status of the GT 062E
case and drives inside. The new version reports case temperature, fan
speed, individual drives' health status and temperature, as well as any
drive errors or rebuild failures. Glyph Manager constantly monitors the
health of the GT 062E as a background task using S.M.A.R.T. commands,
and if a problem is detected, it alerts the user by blinking the front
LED red, and bouncing an icon in the Mac OS X dock or displaying an
error balloon from the Windows System Tray. By predicting drive
failure, you have a chance to backup your data before any is lost.

The GT 062E is constructed with a scratch-resistant
black powder-coated aluminum chassis, as well as a unique 1/8" thick
brushed stainless steel face plate. The aluminum chassis offers
additional heat transfer properties while allowing the drive to be
lightweight and portable.
Professionals know that a high quality power supply
is one of the most important components in any piece of equipment.
Glyph uses internal power supplies in all GT series products for this
reason. All internal power supplies are fully auto-switching for
