Press Release - 1:1 HDD Cruiser

New Aleratec Hard Disk Drive Duplicator Also Does JBOD Storage

Chatsworth, CA, February 24, 2009 - Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the Blu-ray, DVD/CD, Flash, HDD, USB duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets, announced today a new stand alone 1:1 HDD Cruiser, a high speed 1:1 hard disk drive duplicator that can copy a hard drive at speeds up to 70MB/sec. The 1:1 HDD Cruiser is a stand alone unit that has the ability to quickly make a copy of a SATA 3.5 inch hard disk drive, making it an essential tool for quickly installing or upgrading new computer systems. This innovative unit is also equipped with a USB 2.0 port that allows you to access both SATA drive bays from your PC. This USB access is a powerful feature to help you view and edit hard drives before duplicating.

"The 70MB/sec copy speed of our new Aleratec 1:1 HDD Cruiser is twice as fast as many competitive offerings and it is equipped with quick load bays so there are no cumbersome external cables needed. It is a fast and convenient HDD duplicator. Just load your source and target drives in the drive bays and close the bay doors. The 1:1 HDD Cruiser will copy the exact content and format of the source drive to the target. This is a powerful and effective tool to upgrade hard drives for multiple systems and ideal for IT departments and small office Prosumer users." said Perry Solomon, President and CEO of Aleratec. "With the USB 2.0 port connected to both drive bays provides JBOD access to drives in each bay. A customer can attach the 1:1 HDD Cruiser to a PC, load it with hard drives, and use it for additional storage or backup when not duplicating. Only Aleratec offers an affordable, easy to load and unload, hard drive duplicator with these extra features."

The 1:1 HDD Cruiser’s drive bays are equipped with quick and easy loading doors. Open the drive bay door to load or unload a drive, it is that simple. The drive bays are metallic for optimum thermal conductivity minimizing any issues that can be caused by overheating of drives in process. When drives are loaded in the drive bays and the drive bay doors closed, high integrity electrical and data connections are made automatically. Each drive bay has internal Non Scratch SATA connectors designed for greater than 50,000 swap cycles minimizing worries about drive connection issues.
