thats the nice thing about the combodock, it always resets to write blocked mode. =)

while its nice to have both in a dedicated field kit, i carry my combodock in my laptop bag so i always have access to a write blocker regardless of where i am

i just used my combodock in the field on thursday and it worked very well.

Personally I would choose the Wiebetech devices over Tableau. For many years we have used the Tableau devices and have been relatively happy with them. Since trying the ComboDock v5 and UltraDock v5 I have standardized on Wiebetech gear. They seem much faster than the T35s and like another poster said having the latest interfaces on one device is a nice feature. You can also add an encryption module to your UltraDock or ComboDock if you need extra security for evidence storage.


Just my $0.02

Best,

Tom

I picked up the v5 just to get the USB3. Overall you're still limited by the disk inside your evidence or target disk, but it's good to know you've gotten rid of one bottleneck.

I have five of them. They've been solid for a year, and an onsite acquisition rendered two of them inoperable. None of my other hardware was affected, including the other three UltraDocks. Other than that they've been solid.

May I ask you (if you are allowed to, of course, and feel free to be as "generic" as you see fit in order to not reveal the case details) some more details of the accident?

Like what do you think may have been the cause, power source (and/or surges/spikes in it), the use (say) of a power generator instead of mains, the actual disks that were "botched" (as an example with either of the TVS diodes shorted), etc.?
