Need to get a new user up and running quickly? Or how about diagnosing that hard drive that won’t spin up?

CRU® WiebeTech® products, such as the WiebeTech UltraDock™ v4, are used by IT managers and departments to efficiently manage hard drive and computer tasks.

The WiebeTech UltraDock v4 connects to any bare hard drive—IDE/PATA, SATA, or other types with optional adapters—to access, read, set up, diagnose, or repair it. An intuitive LCD and menu makes it convenient to view drive information and perform tasks. You can even detect, remove, create, or modify Host Protected Areas (HPAs) and Device Configuration Overlays (DCOs).

The UltraDock v4 puts drive information at your fingertips. Quickly access selected important SMART data such as hours used, number of power cycles, and disk health. It can also display the model and serial number reported by the drive's firmware.

The UltraDock v4 has USB 2.0, eSATA, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800 connections. But if you need to work with a non-standard drive, or encrypt one, there are a variety of adapters available for additional flexibility.

Additional features:

  • Multiple computer connection types
  • Rugged aluminum construction
  • 3-year warranty
  • Free US-based customer support
