Hi, Dale

Thanks for your post.
There are few things I would like to mention.

(1) eSATA vs Powered eSATA:
eSATA port designed to be used with faster speed but it has a limitation that only carry data, but not power. This is standard specification of eSATA.
NVS-2525 supports eSATAp host (powered eSATA or power-over eSATA). eSATAp is designed for portable hard drive with full advantage of speed and carry power in a single cable.

If you connect your gtech 2tb hard drive with computer, you would also need two cables attached (one for data & the other one for power, maybe via USB) or one cable attached to gtech and plug-in ac adapter to power

So, this is not a limitation of Nexto device.

NVS-2525 bundled with an external eSATAp hard drive (750GB), so you can start make two identical copies straightway. If you want to get 2nd drive, you can buy delock enclouser (model id: 42465 ) and a SATA (2.5"/SATA/7200rpm) hard disk. or you can buy Seagate GoFlex Pro 7200rpm (model STAD750100) and a GoFlex upgraded powered cable (model: STAE103).

(2) Nexto device doesn't change names of original video files.
After successful copies, you will see FOLDER names that is form of "20110405"(date of video taken) and followed by "." (dot) then 000 (sequence no). If you have several cards that shot on same day, then 2nd card will be 20110405.001 then 20110405.002 and so on.

Inside that folder, you will see all original files and these are exactly same names of SxS or P2 card's contents.

Nexto NVS can also generate "INDEX.htm" file after each successful backup, so you can identify each backup by opening "INDEX.htm" under the root directory later on, in the edit room. It displays (single frame) clip view with meta data. This is very useful for editor.

You can either activate "AUTO GENERATION INDEX" function on or off under MENU.

(3) Advantages of purchasing NVS-2525 for P2/P2E users
- Portable and Rugged design (154 x 91 x 33 mm, 430g)
- Make two identical copies simultaneously (MCopy)
- Copy (80Mb/s), Verify (86Mb/s), Mcopy (76Mb/s)
i.e. a 32GB P2E card in 'minutes' 'seconds': 7'24" to copy / 7'24" to verification / 7'01" to make two identical copies onto internal and external.
- Versatile Power management; internal battery can be rechargeable by ac adapter, AA battery holder (4x AAs), external Li-poly battery pack, car charger or interface cables(FW800, USB2).
- offloading from various cards, SxS, SxS-1, P2, P2E, CF
- Cost effective
