an amazing performance & an amazing drive

I was in need to find ASAP a fast and reliable SSD as my Mac's internal SSD is filled to the top and I was recommended to "off-shore" the (audio) libraries to an external one. I was concerned with a speed as to have fast load up times and seamless streaming is an essential feat. Even-though I could not take an advantage of the new gen of USB3 that the disk supports and I am "only" getting about 250/300 MB/s read/write speeds, it is still super fast for all the work and tests I have done so far. It's blazingly fast and the load times for my sound libraries, loops, orchestral sounds are instant! I am happily overwhelmed and I am thankful to go for friends' recommendation for Glyph. IT's plug and play on Mac. I had 3 drives from Crucial that kept failing (that's for another review & stay clear of those products) but so far the Blackbox works stunningly well! Well worth of the investment and keep an eye on the instant rebate that expires soon!

Great product

Used the Glymph as my time machine back-up and files storage for my iMac, as my iMac only has a 1TB SSD storage. Speed I am getting is as advertised, which was what I was looking for in an External storage.
