Duplicators have long been using the USB connector to allow the user to transfer content from a computer to either a single drive or directly to the duplicatorâ€™s hard drive (HDD). This method is often the easiest or only method by which the user can create the master disc or upload the master content onto the duplicatorâ€™s HDD. When it comes to CD or DVD, the transfer rate was adequate and didnâ€™t take too much time that it would cause an issue.
Now, we are living in the world of Blu-ray and disc capacity is growing by leaps and bounds. The older USB 2.0 transfer rate (rated at 60MBytes/sec) is just not gonna cut it when you need to burn or transfer anywhere from 25GBâ€™s to over 100GBâ€™s of data. At that rate it would take hours to make a single Blu-ray master disc.
With the introduction and the implementation by Vinpower of the USB 3.0 (backwards compatible with USB 2.0) which offers a transfer rate up to 5Gbit/s, the transfer time will be knocked down to minutes or even seconds. This will enable those looking to duplicate content onto Blu-ray discs the ability to transfer that data through the USB 3.0 onto a master disc or the duplicatorâ€™s HDD rapidly and eliminate wasted time just to get started.
