PremiumUSB Debuts New Line of Accutower Flash USB Duplicators
It’s been almost two years since PremiumUSB began carrying the Accutower Flash USB duplicator from US Digital Media. Following its debut, the machine was praised for its ability to copy up to 28 drives at a time with the base unit, and up to 77 drives at a time with the add-on tower. Today, I’d like to introduce you to two new members of the Accutower Flash family: the HX and VX duplicators.
The Accutower Flash HX can be easily identified by its horizontal target ports, while the Accutower Flash VX has its ports in a vertical configuration. Cosmetic differences aside, these are two of the most capable and feature-packed flash drive duplicators on the market today.
When you need to copy a large number of USB flash drives, there are two ways to go about doing it: you can use a small duplicator and make lots of passes, or a large duplicator and make fewer passes. The second method takes the least amount of time, and is therefore more efficient. However, buying a larger size duplicator often costs more than a smaller duplicator with fewer ports. So which is the best type of machine to get? Let’s take a look at some examples to give you a better idea.
The Accutower Flash HX and VX machines are available in a wide variety of configurations to meet nearly every budget and production level. A small company which copies only a few dozen drives per month may choose the 7-port or 15-port Accutower HX duplicator. A mid-size company which does a few hundred drives per year may want a midsize tower with 31 or 39 target drives, while a large company that does thousands of promotional USB drives at a time may want a 47, 55, or 63-port duplicator.
Smaller towers such as the 7 and 15-port models cost about $699 and $1,299 respectively, while larger towers such as the 63-port behemoth sell for just under $5,000 bucks. Accutower Flash VX duplicators are available in similar configurations ranging from 6 target ports for $629 all the way up to 118 ports for $9,999.
The Accutower Flash HX and VX duplicators are completely stand-alone machines that do not need a computer to operate. All you have to do is turn it on, plug your master USB drive into the top left port, insert the desired number of blank drives, and hit Copy. The machine does the rest!
One of the most useful features of the machine is the indicator lights above each of the target USB ports. The HX series features individual red and green lights while the VX features a single multi-colored indicator light. A solid green light indicates the duplicator recognizes the drive, while a flashing green light indicates that information is being written to or read from the drive. The red light indicates a write failure, which makes it very easy to alert the operator of any potential problems.
Both USB duplicators also include a number of advanced features for power users. These include formatting (erasing) the drives before copying, a comparison function, and the ability to copy “files only” or the entire contents of the drive – including free space.
The big question is: are these duplicators worth the price? If you’re serious about copying USB flash drives quickly and accurately, they are absolutely worth every penny.
