Amazing Forensic Performance. Great Product Value.
Dealing with big storage and bigger data presents today's forensic examiner with greater challenges than ever before. The new Tableau T8u Forensic USB 3.0 Bridge delivers best-in-class, secure, hardware-based write-blocking of USB mass storage devices.
Write-Blocked Forensic Imaging in Excess of 300 MB/second
The Tableau 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. T8u's 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, we've 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 T8u's forensic performance and value.

The Tableau T8u presents various bridge and device information via an integrated, backlit display. Device status, device information, logical unit (LUN) select, and bridge information are easily accessible using the T8u's front panel membrane menu button.
