    Hi,

    I tried searching this topic as I'm sure it must have been discussed although I couldn't find anything.

    Anyway, I am looking for an external hard drive, either eSata or FW800.

    It must be at least 500GB, preferably 1TB, and as silent as possible. I plan to use it with my MBP for recording.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks
    Joko

    Check out Glyph drives. They are quiet, quick, and come with a great warranty and data recovery plan.

    +1 for Glyph.

    A colleague uses G-Tech for past 2 years and swears by them.

    I've had a 7200rpm Mercury on the Go for quite a while now, never done me wrong, one of my fave pieces of gear.

    Found the Glyph dealer in Hamburg where I live now, and those drives are pricey! Although I believe they are the best..should be at that price.

    €200 for 500GB
    €300 for 1000GB

    Ok sorry 1 more to question to anyone who can answer. About to buy a hard drive from Glyph:

    the 500GB & 750GB have 16MB cache
    1TB and up have 32MB cache

    Does cache size make a big difference here?

    Thanks
