Nexcopy SuperSpeed 3.0 USB Duplicator – Shipping SoonNexcopy 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.
