Addonics Technologies today announced the M2/SSD/HDD Duplicator -- a family of high-speed duplicators designed for making multiple copies of M2 (NGFF) SSD or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD media from a single master drive.
Each duplicator comes bundled with a 2.5" M2 (NGFF) flash drive kit that turns a M2 (NGFF) card into a 2.5" SATA SSD. You can mix and match the M2 (NGFF) SSD, 2.5" SSD or standard SATA hard drives into the duplicator, which makes it a handy tool for transferring content between multiple media formats.
There is no computer needed or complex software required to operate any Addonics duplicator. Just open the doors on the drive bays, load the master media into the source bay and the target media of capacity equal or larger into the target bays, lock the drive doors and push the start button to start the copying process. Designed with snap-in drive bays, drives can be easily added or removed without any special tool, just like an ordinary cassette tape.
There are five products in the family, which allow you to copy from the source media to 5 to 11 target media at one time. Two models include the option of using a 3.5” hard drive as a source drive.
Additional support for mSATA, CFast or CF cards is offered with an optional Addonics 2.5" flash drive kit (Available models AD25MSD, AD25CFASTD, AD25CFD).
The new M2 drive format is smaller, lighter, and consumes less power. M2 devices deliver maximize performance when used as a cache drive (in tandem with a HDD) and provide enough storage space to load an operating system as a bootable drive for embedded applications, ultrabooks, and next generation notebooks.
Models are priced from $999 to $1,569. Visit http://www.addonics.com/category/m2du.php for more information.
