1:5 M2 / mSATA / 2.5" HDD/SSD Duplicator

Discontinued and replaced by M2S25HD4H-2S

The Addonics family of M2 and mSATA HDD duplicator is designed for making multiple copies of M2 SATA SSD, mSATA SSD or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD from a single master drive. Each duplicator comes bundled with a set of 2,5" M2/mSATA flash drive kit that turns a M2 SATA SSD or mSATA SSD into a 2.5" SATA SSD. You can mix and match the M2, mSATA SSD and the hard drive into the duplicator, thus making it a handy tool for transferring the content between the M2 SATA SSD, mSATA SSD and 2.5" HDD/SSD. 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 this model

The 1:5 M2, mSATA, 2,5" HDD/SSD  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 M2 SATA SSD, mSATA or mini mSATA SSD or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD. 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 CFast card, CF card, slim SATA SSD and 1.8" (micro SATA) HDD/SSD.

For duplicator with the highest performance and also expansion capability, please visit the Jasper II series of duplicator.

  • Copy from one media to maximum five(5) media at one time. Media can be M2 SATA SSD¹, mSATA/mini mSATA SSD or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD with thickness up to 9.5 mm
  • Supported drive thickness: up to 9.5 mm
  • The supported media can be mixed in the target slots - great for transferring content among M2 SATA SSD, mSATA SSD, 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD or vice versa 
  • Comes with six (6) units of 2.5" M2/mSATA flash drive kits (AD25M2MSA) to convert M2 SATA SSD or mSATA SSD to 2.5" SATA SSD
  • Additional support for CFast, CF, slim SATA SSD and 1.8" HDD/SSD with the following optional 2.5" flash drive kit -  AD25CFASTD-NAD25CFD-N, AA25SEMBK, AD18M25S
  • Choice of high speed model: M2MSHD5HS
  • Typical copying speed*:
 Copying Speed
Model 1 target 3 targets 4 targets or more
M2S25HFD5 ~ 105 MB/sec ~ 70 MB/sec ~ 50 MB/sec
  • Support any file system
  • Maximum drive size >4TB
  • Source and Destination drives are added or removed like tape cartridges from each drive bay with no special tool required
  • Drive sanitization:
    • SECURE ERASE - HDD duplicator sends a WIPE command to the hard drive. This command fills 00 string to entire HDD (this feature may not be supported by some mSATA SSD or flash media)
    • 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. Click on following link for a  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

1  There are three types of M2 SSD: M2 SATA SSD, M2 PCIe SSD and M2 NVMe SSD. M2 SATA SSD uses SATA interface, the same interface on SATA hard drive, and is the only type of M2 media supported by this duplicator.
