It’s clear USB 3.0 is coming. It’s an unstoppable train which is building momentum with each new day and each new product launch. Millions of PC and peripherals will ship this year with the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed bus interface. With that said, it’s no wonder the timing of the Nexcopy SuperSpeed USB duplicator couldn’t be at a better moment. Now it’s possible for users to manage these new peripherals without using legacy 2.0 products.
The SSUSB160PC is a 16 target USB duplicator which works off the USB 3.0 technology. What you need to remember is that a USB 2.0 stick won’t jump to the 3.0 speed just because it’s a new interface. Fortunately, the 3.0 system will easily handle 3.0 hard drives, which seem to be the most prevalent in the market, as well as 3.0 flash drives which are just starting to show as mainstream.
The SSUSB160PC is a slick looking product with a light weight aluminum body making it ideal for on-site duplication and data loading. The USB duplicator has a built in 120 watt power supply and will copy at your devices maximum transfer rate. For some ideas, it’s reported by Nexcopy that 32GBs of data can copy in about 6 minutes.
We’ve reported on other products from Nexcopy Corporation – maybe it time I request an evaluation unit…some glamor shots after the jump…
We’ve reported about Nexcopy several times before, ranging from their USB duplicators to SD and Compact Flash duplicators, and today we are here to tell you about the Nexcopy standalone USB duplicator.
Nexcopy, Standalone USB duplicator
With flash drives getting bigger in capacity and cheaper in price, it’s natural to think data loads are getting bigger too. Several years ago, it was common to put a PowerPoint or PDF of a trade show swag USB, but today, with the popularity of YouTube and the ease to make video, the promotional content is getting much bigger. The Nexcopy standalone USB duplicator copies at a maximum speed of 30MB per second, that’s about 1800MB per minute. Granted you wont get that data transfer from a typical trade show flash drive, but with more advanced USB sticks it’s definitely possible.
The Nexcopy standalone USB duplicator family comes in two sizes. There is a 16 port system and a 32 port system. Each system loses one port for the master device and I figure this is why the Nexcopy part numbers are USB115SA and USB131SA…as that’s 1 master to X number of blanks.
We couldn’t find a price on the Nexcopy website as the products are only sold through authorized dealers. Release date of the new USB duplicator systems is the first week of September 2010.
