New Hard Drive Duplicator Dock offers fastest sector-by-sector duplication speeds available, can also be used as a high-speed, dual bay HDD Dock

StarTech.com’s new HDD Duplicator Dock for 2.5” and 3.5” SATA hard drives offers standalone sector-by-sector drive cloning at up to 22 GB per minute - almost three times as fast as most mainstream duplicators, as well as high-speed drive docking when connected to a host computer through either USB 3.0 or eSATA

Lockbourne, OH - August 28, 2014- StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the release of a new Standalone USB 3.0/eSATA Drive Duplicator Dock (SKU: SDOCK2U33RE), which offers the fastest sector-by-sector drive cloning available, at up to 22 GB per minute. The Duplicator supports both 2.5" and 3.5" SATA drives, and can also be used as a high-speed drive dock when connected to a laptop or desktop computer through either USB 3.0 or eSATA.

"StarTech.com's newest Duplicator Dock is a definite productivity booster, especially when you need to clone massive amounts of data" said Juliet Wei, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com's Data Storage product line. "Whereas mainstream drive duplicators operate at roughly 8 GB per minute, this model performs nearly three times faster. While a mainstream duplicator takes two to three hours to perform a full duplication of a one Terabyte SSD, the same operation will take only forty-five minutes to clone the same amount of data using identical drives with the StarTech.com Duplicator Dock. For forensic, data recovery or data archiving applications, saving that much time means you can accomplish more and move on to your next project sooner".
