1:5 mSATA HDD/SSD Duplicator

Discontinued and replaced by M2MSHD5HS

The Addonics family of Combo mSATA HDD duplicator is designed for making multiple copies of mSATA SSD or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD from a single master drive. Each duplicator comes bundled with a set of 2,5" mSATA flash drive kit that turns a mSATA SSD into a 2.5" SATA SSD. You can mix and match the mSATA SSD and the hard drive into the duplicator, thus making it a handy tool for transferring the content between the mSATA card and 2.5" hard drive. There is no computer needed or complex software to operate. 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.

 

About the 1.5 mSATA / 2.5" SSD/HDD duplicator

These 1:5 Combo mSATA SSD HDD duplicators allow you to copy from one source media onto as many as five (5) target media at one time. Source and target media can be of either mSATA SSD or 2.5" SATA hard drive. Designed with snap-In drive bay, drives are easily added or removed without any special tool, just like an ordinary cassette tape. By adding other optional 2.5" flash drive adapters, the supported media can be expanded to include M2 (NGFF) card, CFast card, CF card, slim SATA SSD and 1.8" HDD/SSD. There is a choice of the High Speed model that maintains duplication speed from one to 5 targets with little performance degradation.

  • Choice of high performance model
  • Typical copying speed*
 Copying Speed
Model 1 target 3 targets 4 targets or more
MSHDUS5L-A ~ 105 MB/sec ~ 70 MB/sec ~ 60 MB/sec
MSHDUS5HS-A ~ 105 MB/sec ~ 95 MB/sec ~ 90 MB/sec

    • OVERWRITE - One pass, 3 passes and 7 passes 5220.22-M. The duplicator writes a string of pattern over the entire disk one time, three times or seven times. 5220.22-M is the DoD standard for drive sanitization
  • LCM control module provides a rich set of robust advanced configuration options (diagram of duplicator features can be here Full LCD console feature list)
  • Operate as a stand alone appliance. No computer or software needed

The speed here is for reference only. The actual transfer rate varies depending on the speed of the source and destination drive
