The Aleratec 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ is both a powerful standalone hard disk drive duplicator and a versatile Dual Disk RAID Controller in one lightweight, portable device. In duplicator mode, the 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ duplicates either 2.5” or 3.5” SATA I/II hard disk drives, creating perfect clone hard drives. With the optional IDE Accessories Pack (Part number 240146 sold separately), the HDD PortaCruiser™ is compatible with 2.5” and 3.5” IDE hard disk drives as well. You can even duplicate from an IDE drive to a SATA drive, or vice-versa! As a Dual Disk RAID Controller, the 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ can be attached to a PC through its high-speed USB 2.0 interface and used as an external storage device or hard drive backup for critical files.

The 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ is priced affordably and has a small physical form factor, weighing in at approximately 8.3oz. This makes it the smallest and lightest member of Aleratec’s award-winning HDD Duplicator family. Its 2-line LCD display gives users easy access to the device’s features, as well as important information on the status of processes. With a button push, the 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ will begin to copy a hard drive with a sector-by-sector process that includes disk partition and boot sector information. The result is an exact clone of your source hard drive. Advanced diagnostic functions such as Source Prescan and HDD Compare make your work even easier.

"This latest entry rounds out our complete line of hard disk drive duplication solutions," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. “The PortaCruiser product is compact and supports both legacy IDE and the latest SATA hard disk drives for a low cost without sacrificing professional features.”

The versatile, two-in-one capability of the 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ provides the ultimate in convenience, portability and efficiency, making it an essential item for every field tech’s toolkit.

The 1:1 HDD PortaCruiser™ complements Aleratec’s award-winning line of HDD Duplicators by offering a portable, yet powerful solution. Other SATA I/II HDD Duplicators include the 1:1 HDD Cruiser (P/N 350103), the 1:5 HDD Cruiser (P/N 350104) and the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini (P/N 350107).
