Amazing Forensic Performance. Great Product Value

The challenge of today´s forensic examiner is to deal with more big storage and bigger data, 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.

From the outside, the new Tableau T8u Forensic USB 3.0 Bridge looks similar to the T8-R2 – but the similarities end there. Use a T8u and you’ll realize it is unlike any other USB write-blocker on the market today. T8u excels when imaging USB 3.0 flash drives and large, multiterabyte USB 3.0 hard drives, but it supports any USB device that conforms to the mass storage “bulk only” specification.

The T8u is the first Tableau Portable Family forensic bridge that supports write-blocked imaging of USB 3.0. 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.

Forensic data transfer with the T8u in 300 MB/second (while simultaneously calculating MD5 and SHA-1 hashes)
The 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.




  • Imaging speed up to 300 MB / second
  • USB 3.0 host computer connection
  • The T8u displays device and drive information (such as drive status, logical unit selection) in its built-in LCD display, selectable          by the membrane keys.
  • The T8u can be operated with the new TP5 or the common TP2 power supply.
  • Free Tableau firmware updates
