1:5 Hard drive/SSD Duplicator NB

About the 1:5 HDD/SSD Duplicator Series

The latest Addonics 1:5 HDD (Hard Disk Drive) Duplicator can copy as many as 5 target drives from a single source, making this the ideal solution for production or data distribution applications. Addonics 1:5 HDD duplicator operates totally as a stand alone. There is no computer needed or complex software to operate. Set up is accessed via a LCM control panel on the front of the unit. Once configured, simply mount up to 5 hard drives of equal or larger capacity than the master drive into the duplicator, load the master hard drive and push the start button to start the copying process.
