The Most Forensically Sound Combination of Write-Blocking and Read/Write Capabilities.
Dual mode: Write-block & Read/write. Forensic ComboDock v5 is a safe implementation of a dual-mode Dock. It's easy to switch from write-blocked mode into read/write mode, for when you need to work with information on bare drives.
Helps you protect your chain of custody. Unlike other forensic devices in the market, Forensic ComboDock makes it impossible to unintentionally turn off write-blocking. Every time it is turned on, Forensic ComboDock asks the user to choose either write-blocking or read/write mode, avoiding problems that can occur when the user forgets to change the mode to write-blocking.
This is a simpler, and more secure way to turn off write-blocking, compared to other devices in the market that require the user to turn off write-blocking with tiny switches, often leading to confusion about what mode the device is in.
Forensic ComboDock's LED indicator light and an easy screen menu also clearly identify the work mode.

Host access through eSATA, USB 3.0 or FireWire. WiebeTech's proprietary write-blocked technology offers easy read-only access to suspect hard drives through eSATA as well as USB 3.0 and FireWire 800/400 for maximum versatility.

Easy to use! Connect the hard drive to the Forensic ComboDock, plug in power, and attach a cable to a host computer. That's all it takes. The drive connector allows for automatic alignment and easy insertion. For more protection to the drive, a mounting plate can be screwed onto the bottom of the drive to protect the drive's circuitry.On the drive side, natively connect to 3.5" IDE/PATA drives, or 2.5"/3.5" SATA drives - no adapters necessary for these common drives. If you need to connect to other types of drives - such as more rare 1.8" drives - Forensic ComboDock works with seven of our v4 Combo Adapters.
Rugged design, built to last. Grab it and go - Forensic ComboDock is tough as nails and built to last. The small and rugged case is built from aluminum for durability.
