The sockets are the consumables of a duplicator just like the tires of a vehicle. After repeatedly inserting and removing flash media you will gradually wear out the socket in a duplicator and a replacement will eventually be required.
Since ease of maintenance isn't necessarily a design priority for most duplicators in the market, it can be very labor intensive and time consuming to replace a deteriorated socket - from opening the case, disconnecting cables, to removing boards, then reverse the whole process to complete the task.
U-Reach uniquely designed its duplicators to facilitate effortless maintenance. In its Intelligent 9 Duplicator users can easily exchange the sockets in THREE steps which can take less than ONE minute.
