Vantec NexStar HDD Duplicator Review

Postby Apoptosis » Thu Sep 19, 2013 9:40 am

We’ve seen our share of hard drive docks and even a few from Vantec, but this time they have something a little different. The NexStar HDD Duplicator also does as its name implies, it can duplicate drives on a sector-by-sector basis. The beautiful part is that it can do it independently, without the need of being connected to a host PC. Therefore, no software is needed and it doesn’t really care what data or OS is on the drive. This makes for a very flexible tool which may appeal more to the techie crowd than the average user since not everyone has the need for drive duplication. Read on to see how it works!

Thanks for the review!

I read the manual, and it says that this doesn't work with 4K sector drives. Did you try any 4k sector drives? And do you know if this applies to only the docking mode (which is how it seems to me) or if it's a cloning limitation as well?

pretty much all new drives are 4K aligned... If that is true this device is already obsolete... LOL :toimonster:
