Validated Speeds of 69GB/min* From 1 PCIe M.2 to another PCIe M.2

The new Image MASSter™ Solo 5 Enterprise Forensic takes the IM Solo-4 G3 Slim to a whole new level. Faster by far and more flexible than any other unit on the market, the new Solo 5 Enterprise Forensic is also less expensive.  The new Solo 5 Enterprise Forensic shares the same footprint of the successful and established IMSolo-4 G3 Slim. Without compromising any of the IMSolo-4 G3 Slim’s features, the Solo 5 Enterprise Forensic offers two additional, unique 4-lane PCIe Expansion Ports, allowing it to acquire data at validated Speeds of 69GB/min from a PCIe M.2 storage device to another PCIe M.2.  The new Solo 5 Enterprise Forensic is configured with an Intel i7™ processor. With a total of 17 I/O ports, the Solo 5 Enterprise Forensic has the capability of supporting the simultaneous acquisition of up to 16 storage devices, providing the user with maximum cost/performance flexibility for Forensic Data Acquisition and Analysis Operations.   NOTE: This product has capability to add the ACC-5000-001 M.2 2-channel "M" key NVMe/PCIe drive module, but does not include that module.   If you need M.2 "M" key NVMe drive capability, the ACC-5000-001 may be ordered and added at any time; if you need that capability immediately, please refer to the KIT-5001-307 which includes this module standard.
