Storage peripheral maker WiebeTech LLC on Monday introduced its new Forensic800 Case and ForensicUSB2 Case — two new peripherals designed specifically for forensic (write-blocked) investigations of computer systems.
Both cases feature rigid drive connectors that make it easier to connect and disconnect a bare drive mechanism — times when you can easily bend the delicate pins on a drive interface. The case uses a similar apparatus as WiebeTech’s Forensic DriveDock.
The drive case can also switch between “field mode,” where it operates without a cover in place — and “office mode,” where it operates with the cover attached — in only a few seconds.
The Forensic800 Case includes a vertical stand, FireWire 800 cable, FireWire 800 to 400 cable, FireWire 400 cable and a USB cable, as well as an AC adapter. The ForensicUSB2 Case includes USB cable and AC adapter. The Forensic800 Case is equipped with dual FireWire 800 interfaces, a FireWire 400 port and one USB 2.0 interface. It costs US$449.95. The ForensicUSB2 case is equipped with USB 2.0 only and costs $399.95.
