These days there isn’t much to flash drives, other than look and some advanced functions, so for this post I thought the video Mimobot put together for introducing their next 4 models would be the best way to entertain the readers…so enjoy:Continue Reading
Nexcopy is getting ready to release a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Duplicator with a 16 port capacity. Nexcopy is currently optimizing the SuperSpeed thumbdrive copier so details are still somewhat sketchy. What Nexcopy is reporting is the USB 3.0 Duplicator will be out in about 5 weeks. It can copy at a peak rate of 65MB/s for a single flash drive; interestingly, performance can jump to 72MB/s with multiple devices connected. For USB 3.0 hard drives, transfer speeds come in at 95MB/s. The number is consistent with either 1 or 8 devices connected to the duplicator.
Nexcopy reports the primary target market are USB 3.0 hard drives as they are more prevalent in the market today, but expect demand for USB 3.0 flash drive duplication to pick up as more become available. In related news, Nexcopy plans to offer USB 3.0 flash drives in 16GB and 32GB size with custom branding as option. They will be sold for $89 and $149 respectively. As for the duplicator pricing, the company hasn’t made any announcement yet.

Nexcopy announced an all new microSD duplicator line of products which range from 20 ports to 60 ports for data loading to microSD media. Nexcopy is known for their USB duplicators, and has since expanded out to Secure Digital, Compact Flash and now microSD duplicators. They had a microSD solution before but it used microSD to SD adapter cards. This new line of product uses only the microSD media itself, no adapters.
Nexcopy reports this could increase production throughput by as much as 30% because of reduced labor involved with the SD adapter cards.
“The microSD duplicator is ideal for telecom recycling centers who need to process and format microSD media left in cell phones and SmartPhones after a contract has expired. With the new duplicators, formatting, erasing, verifying and data loading is a very simple and straight forward process.”
I’m sure many system integrators who are embracing the small flash memory type will also rejoice in seeing a product that will speed up production. In addition, with telecommunication companies and service providers getting on board with data loading free content and promotional campaigns to microSD as incentives for cell phone purchases.

If Nexcopy where to make a movie about USB duplicators and data loading USB flash drives, this would be the movie trailer to draw in attention.
Clearly, it would be ‘the most boring’ movie in the world, but I’ll have to admit the movie trailer is quite impressive given the mundane product.
Nexcopy did a good job of putting a unique spin on their product announcement for the new 40 and 60 port USB duplicators via a movie trailer. The 1 minute video gives you just enough information to peak your interest, yet doesn’t bore you enough to click away.
The high definition version is posted on youtube, but you’ll get the point from this:
