Product Features:

Now you can produce professional quality discs In-House without breaking the bank!

The GX-1 Disc Publisher has a narrow foot print so it won't take up valuable work space. It is ideal for businesses and organizations requiring shorter runs of discs. Churches, Schools, Small Office/Home Office, Sales and Marketing Departments, Videographers, and Recording Studios will benefit from its innovative design and surprisingly low price point.

Microboards is known for quality and the GX-1 is no exception. High quality components assure years of trouble free operation.
A single, high speed DVD/CD combo drive and robust software make designing labels, printing, and burning discs a snap, but don’t let the small size and ease of use fool you... The GX-1 is an all in one production package, controlled from your PC or MAC over a single USB 2.0 cable using the included software suite.

Features Include :
· Easy-to-use interface, even for novice users
· Burn virtually any DVD or CD Format, including dual layer
· Set up multiple jobs with any quantity, and walk away - unattended burning and printing of up to 100 discs at a time
· A super low cost of $0.20 per print (ink cost)

Many other duplicators depend on your main hard drive to store data while the burn is occurring. The GX-1 requires (actually recommends) a second hard drive in your machine to store this information. This is to ensure that equipment related "bad" burns will be rare or non existent. We applaud Microboards for this.

From the Microboards site:

The most frequently-asked question regarding the GX-1, DX-1 and DX-2 Disc Publishers is if the second hard drive is really needed.
The short answer: Yes.
The long answer? If you want your Disc Publisher to perform to meet our high standards - fastest possible throughput, the fewest rejected discs, the most hands-free operation - then the second hard drive is needed. Use of an OS hard drive by the Operating System can be very frequent. If you have only a single hard drive, each time the hard drive is required for Operating System needs, then your Disc Publisher could potentially be waiting it's turn to burn data from that drive. The result? Slower and more varied burn speeds, and the potential for duplication failure - in other words, the product that you are creating may not be the best that it can be.

Warranty: One Year. A Microboards "Microcare" Quick exchange" warranty is available for the GX-1 CD-DVD duplicator.
