The Aleratec 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB3.0 gives users the power to make hard drive copies and access hard drives quickly and easily with one lightweight, portable device. Though it weighs in at less than a pound, it is both a powerful standalone hard disk duplicator and a versatile HDD docking station.
Chatsworth, CA — January 09, 2012 — Aleratec raises the standard for portable HDD duplication with today’s introduction of the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB3.0, an essential tool for building and upgrading computer systems.
The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB3.0 gives users the power to make hard drive copies and access hard drives quickly and easily with one lightweight, portable device. Though it weighs in at less than a pound, it is both a powerful standalone hard disk duplicator and a versatile HDD docking station.
Since it is standalone, there is no need to tie up any computer running complicated duplication software. A simple one-button operation creates perfect clones and backup drives, and the fast sector-by-sector copy process includes partition and boot sector information. Users can connect and remove drives in seconds with the quick-connect hard disk drive bays, allowing users to quickly and easily mount or dismount either drive.
The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB 3.0 duplicates any combination of 2.5” and 3.5” SATA hard disk drives and solid-state drives (SSDs). Compact Flash (CF) memory, CFast memory and 50mm mSATA drives can also be duplicated using optional adapters, not included.
As a docking station, the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB3.0 can be connected to a PC with the included SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable. This high-speed connection allows users instant access to the contents of up to two connected hard disk drives at a time. Users can add additional storage to an existing computer or back up a computer’s critical data.
“This is a powerful, high-quality hard disk duplicator in a versatile, lightweight and affordable device,” says Aleratec President and CEO Perry Solomon. “Despite its portable size, it features the latest technology, including SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which is quickly becoming the new standard.”
The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB3.0 supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, Mac OS10.3 or later, and Linux.
Available adapters that can be used with the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini USB3.0 include the 50mm mSATA SSD to SATA adapter – Part 350118, CFast to SATA adapter – Part 350120 and Compact Flash (CF) Type I/II Memory Cards to SATA adapter – Part 350119.
