Addonics Technologies (www.addonics.com today announced the USB HDD/Flash Duplicator, a USB device designed to operate as a stand-alone appliance for copying data from a single USB drive onto multiple USB drives at one time.
The USB HDD duplicator comes in a choice of three models that duplicate data onto 7, 15 or 31 targets. The new duplicator is designed as a tool for distributing content on flash drive, flash card or USB hard drives. The source and target can be any USB storage -- hard drive, thumb drive or any flash card inserted into a USB flash reader.
The 1:7 USB duplicator copies up to as many as seven USB drives at one time from a single USB source. Each USB port is designed to provide adequate power to operate all self-powered USB storage devices, including most 2.5-inch USB hard drives.
There is no computer or software needed. Simply attach the master USB drive to the source USB port and other USB drives into any target USB ports, press the copy button, and the duplication process starts automatically. Users can also automatically encrypt data copied onto any USB drive by adding the optional Addonics CipherUSB inline to the target USB port.
The stand-alone product has a metal frame construction and a built-in LCD display and control panel. The USB HDD duplicator is compatible with USB 3.0/2.0 and will support any type of file format. The 1:7 model weighs just over seven pounds.
The manufacturer's suggested retail pricing on the Addonics USB HDD/Flash Duplicators are: US$735 for the 1:7 (model UDFH7), $1445 for the 1:15 (model UDFH15) and $2799 for the 1:31 (model UDFH31).
