FW Depot ForensicDeck
FireWire Depot today announced the enclosure. Utilizing an IEEE1394 PHY and optical transceiver, the FireNEX-POF ($600/$700) is capable of sending IEEE1394 signals across a optical fiber cable up to 50 meters in length. It is contained within a small box slightly larger than a deck of cards, which makes it "inobtrusive and compact, allowing you to place it on a desktop already crowded with other things." The ForensicDECK ($1000) is a Forensic hard drive examination station. The ForensicDECK allows users to access a wide range of Hard Drives with READ ONLY/WRITE PROTECT function using adjustable removable drive trays to prevent accidental alteration of HDD content.
