Talon Ultimate

Hello humans,

So I want to buy a super fast image grabbing hardware, I did some research and from what I read the Talon Ultimate by LogicTube does a very good job grabbing images really fast.

My question though, is that if I buy this product and use it for grabbing images, will the images be as effective as let's say, an FTK E01 Image file?

Has anyone here had the experience to compare it the two?

I have the Magnet software's both IEF and AXIOM to go through it later on, but will it be the same as FTK?

I don't get the question
on their site they state it images to E01.

Multiple Image Formats
The Talon Ultimate images and verifies to the following formats native or mirror copy, dd image, e01, ex01 (e01 and ex01 with compression).

If you are looking for "speed" that something that goes "parallel" may be faster (JFYI)

What do you mean "effective"?
It's pretty much binary or on/off, either an image format represents an exact, forensic sound copy or it doesn't.
Then if you have other softwares that works only (or "better") on E01 file format, it would make a lot of sense t have an imaging software/hardware that directly creates them, without any need to convert them.
But E01 is a file format, actually it is EWF (version 1), the EWF-01 is an "industry standard"

If a device makes a forensically sound copy most of the times, but sometimes it writes to a source drive, then what? On or off? )

The note was about an image format, not a device (that may well fail), nor a specific instance of an image (that may as well fail), only about the format.

But imagine that you cannot know if the image is forensically sound unless you access it and the mere act of accessing it makes it unsound …
… Schroedinger's image, which is probably (but not surely wink ) what you were thinking about …

Have a look at this link https://evimetry.com/high-speed-mac-acquisition/ I sat in on a talk a while back and found it very interesting. The website will explain all the imaging speed variables.
