Duel adaptor or P2 reader PCD20

Need help ASAP cause we're ordering tomorrow!! Here is our situation: We are making the move to P2 and shooting about 32 to 40 hours of footage next week, basically run and gun but bringing a crew member to offload p2 cards to hard drive. This is a two camera shoot by the way so there will be several p2 cards flying around.

We're trying to figure out the best system to do this on the run yet still get redundant (if possible) verified backup while in the field. We were about to settle on the PCD20 card reader when I started seeing thread for the Duel adapter. Yes, we are using a macbook pro. What are your opinions? Can the card reader copy over more than one p2 card at a time using offload software (I think we're getting ShotPut p2)? Is it best to get separate hard drives or a raid1?

Thanks in advance for you help.
