Cruiser HDD copier

Aleratec has released a standalone hard drive duplicator, the 1:1 HDD Cruiser, that supports copy speeds of up to 70MB per second. The Cruiser provides a USB 2.0 port that allows access to both SATA drive bays from a PC for editing or viewing. The port can also be used if the two drives are left connected for extra storage or backup. Source and target drives are loaded directly into the drive bays without the need for external cables.

The bays feature internal non-scratch SATA connectors that are designed to exceed 50,000 swap cycles. A metallic lining surrounds each drive to promote thermal conductivity.

The Aleratec 1:1 HDD Cruiser is now available for $315. The standard version is equipped for 3.5-inch drives, while an optional pair of 2.5-inch adapters is priced at $37. Customers that purchase the device before the end of March can receive the adapters for free with a mail-in rebate.
