VConsole USB Flash Duplicator
We reported a while back on the Nexcopy, USB Flash Drive Duplicator and today VConsole announces a similar system but larger capacity and encryption technology.
The VConsole appears to be lightening fast as well, with a copy speed of 91 seconds for 512MB of information.Â Taking a quick visit to their site I see the 91 seconds copy speed is the same for their 21 drive system, 42 drive system and 60 drive system.Â Hmm…strange how those speeds do show, even the slightest, sign of degradation in transfer speed.
Putting that aside, the 128 encryption function is a nice benefit, although not included with the base unit for $8,000, it does make you wonder what the price tag is for that feature.Â From what I’ve seen, most USB flash drive duplicators are used to copy content to give-away USB drives and if that’s the case, I’m not sure why you’d want to encrypt a viral marketing gadget.Â However, with USB getting more popular as a distribution medium, I’m sure there are plenty of uses for the encryption function.
The USB flash drive duplicator can work as a stand alone system or the user can launch a GUI interface to see more details.Â Vconsole mentions they have a multi-casting technology in the works for stringing multiple units together for expanded production.Â This would be of a big benefit for the guys over seas making the drives.
I like the VConsole product, but I honestly see a better fit for the general market with the Nexcopy Inc, USB Duplicator USB Duplicator and with the attractive price tag of $1,299 verse the VConsole $8,000 unit, you’ll need to take a hard, close look at which system best fits your needs.
