The T8u is the first Tableau Portable Family forensic bridge that supports write-blocked imaging of USB 3.0 devices through a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 host computer connection. T8us powerful combination of a new, high-performing product architecture and USB 3.0 technology provide the speed you need to image USB 3.0 flash drives, multi-terabyte hard drives, or all USB 2.0 / 1.1 drives conforming to the mass storage "bulk-only" specification. Using controlled, real-world configurations and modern forensic imaging software, weve measured forensic data transfer with the T8u in excess of 300 MB/second (while simultaneously calculating MD5 and SHA-1 hashes). No other USB write-blocker can match the T8us forensic performance and value.
