WiebeTech Debutes New Forensic DriveDocks

Wichita, Kan.-based WiebeTech LLC announced Wednesday an updated to its line of Forensic DriveDocks with the addition of the Forensic FireWire DriveDock+ and Forensic Notebook DriveDock+.

The Forensic Notebook DriveDock includes proprietary write-blocking firmware that allows the Docks to be attached to any suspect or 2.5-inch Notebook drive and download its contents without risk of data corruption. The Forensic DriveDock+ enables users to connect 3.5-inch drives.

Both drives feature dual FireWire ports and are made of durable anodized aluminum.

The newest version adds about a dozen features to the original FireWire DriveDocks. LED indicators give visual indication when a FireWire host is attached to the Dock, identifies power status on the +12V input jack and disk drive, and verifies that power output is operational. In addition, an on/off switch allows the user to easily power the drive up or down.

Both drives will begin shipping on September 19, 2005 and will retail for US$299.95.
