TEAC HD-6 hard disk duplicator

Perhaps, most readers won´t think that new TEAC HD-6 is very useful, but I guess technical support teams of companies having lots of PCs will clearly understand the idea of the offline HDD duplicator.

So, HD-6 is a PC-independent device with a built-in power supply unit, enabling to duplicate up to three copies of a master disk, connected via IDE. Just plug HDDs in, press Start and continue the work while the device is making all copies itself. At the average 20 MB/sec performance, 40GB ATA100 5200RPM master copying takes 29 min 4 sec for one, 31 min 27 sec for two, 33 min 31 sec for three copies, simultaneously.

The device supports Ultra DMA 66 and better IDE hard disks, it has 9-pin RS-232C serial interface (perhaps, to control HD-6 from a PC in the next versions). An LCD screen and LEDs indicate HD-6 operation modes.

HD-6 supports data compare (perhaps, it means the inavailability of unauthorized data copying to smaller disks; but the availability of data copying to larger disks), supports all formats, as the copying is sectorwise, according to the press-release. Moreover, the drive´s capable of duplicating multi-OS partitioned hard disks. The novelty supports Big Drive (over 137GB). The company suggests the supplied partition utility for correcting duplicated HDD partitions.

HD-6 max. power consumption is 90 W, the size is 205x249.6x80 mm, weight — 2 kg. TEAC now released this device for home market only, that´s traditional for Japanese companies. If I understood (the press-release in Japanese) right, in the near future TEAC plans to release similar HDD duplicator with a SCSI master.
