Press Release - 1:1 HDD Mini Cruiser

Aleratec announces the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini™ …its most affordable and portable Hard Disk Drive Duplicator offering!

Chatsworth, CA - January 12, 2010 - Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of "Prosumers' Choice" solutions for the USB, Flash, HDD, Blu-ray, DVD CD, duplicating, and DVD/CD publishing markets, introduced today the Aleratec 1:1 Hard Disk Drive Copy Cruiser Mini™ -a low-cost, hard drive duplicator.

The Aleratec HDD Copy Cruiser Mini is both a powerful standalone hard disk drive duplicator and a versatile hard disk drive docking station in one lightweight, portable device. In standalone mode, the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini duplicates either 2.5" or 3.5" SATA I/II hard disk drives, creating perfect clone hard drives. As a docking station, it can be attached to a PC through its high-speed USB 2.0 interface and used as an external storage device or hard drive backup for critical files. It's your choice…you decide!

Besides being affordable, the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini has a small physical form factor and only weighs approximately 1.2 lbs. This makes it highly portable so you can easily carry it with you to wherever the device is needed.

The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini is the latest and easiest to use member of Aleratec's award-winning HDD Duplicator family. Users simply insert source and target SATA I/II hard disk drives in the top of the unit and press the start button. With this single button-push, the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini™ will begin to copy the hard drive with a 72 MB/s, sector-by-sector process that includes disk partition and boot sector information. The result is an exact clone of your source hard drive. This product also features quick-connect hard drive bays which allow users to quickly and easily mount and dismount either drive.

"We're responding to what our customers say they wanted," stated Perry Solomon, President and CEO. "For many users, our industrial strength HDD Duplicators are overkill! There are select customers who simply want a reliable, low-cost, portable device that can copy either 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drives. The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini meets that demand!"

The versatile, two-in-one capability of the 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini provides the ultimate in convenience, portability and efficiency, making it the perfect tool for end users at home or in the office where a reliable solution is required.

The 1:1 HDD Copy Cruiser Mini™ complements Aleratec's award-winning HDD Duplicators by offering a basic and highly affordable solution. Other SATA I/II HDD Duplicators include the 1:1 HDD Cruiser (P/N 350103) and the 1:5 HDD Cruiser (P/N 350104).
