NEXTO DI ND2901 Portable Memory Card Backup Device


NEXTO DI unveiled the ND2901 portable memory card backup device at NAB 2014. The new ND2901 is intended to replace NEXTO DI’s previous entry-level backup device and is compatible with CF and SD cards, including the more recent SDXC standard.


It features ExFAT support so that you can copy a 4GB or larger file and can preview both RAW and JPEG files on the built-in 1.44″ LCD. The ND2901 also has a host USB 2.0 port, from which you can sync files to an external hard drive for even more redundancy. With the host port, there is no need to have a computer connected to the ND2901 in order to sync to external drives. The ND2901 also includes a USB 3.0 port for connecting the device to a computer.


It has a battery life of 90 minutes, which allows you to backup roughly 300GB of data on a single charge. You can charge the device with an AC adapter or USB cable.


The NEXTO DI ND2901 is available with 500GB, 750GB and 1TB versions with prices ranging from $399.99 to $499.99. Check out all the versions here at B&H Photo.

    Love it!

    Little on the expensive side as you can get an entire laptop for half the price but i guess that’s what you have to pay for the form factor.

    Also, topping out at 1TB is a little small. 128GB cards are pretty common these days and that is only 7 card dumps. I’m guessing that’s because it will be a 1.8″ HDD, move up to 2.5″ would be nice and 3.5″ might be getting too big but 6TB (even 8TB coming out soon) could be a real RAW shooter’s big photo shoot dream.
