Icy Dock

Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SATA HDD & SSD Converter

Mac | PC | Linux | SATA
Use in Any 3.5" Internal Drive Bay
Icy Dock has changed the game yet again with the new MB982SP-1S 2.5" to 3.5" SATA SSD & HDD Converter. The MB982SP-1S is predicated off the incredibly popular MB882SP-1S-1B device, taking its general concept and improving it tenfold. This product is designed using the dimensions, connection locations, and mounting hole positions of a standard 3.5" SATA drive, so that it can be used in any internal hard drive bay, as well as with backplane and hot swap modules.
Full Metal Design
The MB982SP-1S utilizes a full metal design, creating a better environment for cooling, as well as giving it a rock solid construction, ideal for industrial, enterprise, and military applications. The MB982 can handle almost any type of 2.5" SATA drives, including the 2.5" SSD, Western Digital VelociRaptor 10K RPM drives and high-capacity 1TB hard drives. To allow for 12.5mm and 15mm drive heights, we have included our Smart-Fit Technology, which secures the drive in its place whether it is a thin 9.5mm or thick 15mm.
Effortless Installation
The MB982 also includes most of the features that you already expect from an Icy Dock product: an effortless installation process without any tools or screws, plenty of ventilation slots to keep any drive used running cool and efficient, and a unique and stylish design. The top, front and rear allow air to flow through, and a special vent on the bottom gives the user visual confirmation that the drive has made a secure connection.

Rating: 4/5 Very Nice with OWC QX2 December 16, 2016 The Icy Dock provides decent air flow to SSD's. This is a concern for all SSD's.

Be very careful when mounting any drive inside. Make certain all is aligned or the internal SATA connector will break. Otherwise this is a 5 star product.

Mounting an Icy Dock in an OWC QX2 provides quick, easy and tool less access to 2.5 inch drives (SSD's) for quick and easy drive swaps for backups and transfers and external booting.

NOTE: The plastic version of this product is cumbersome.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 This product has outstanding features December 6, 2014 I have had the plastic version of this adapter for a year, but I wanted the metal one to make for robust changing of hard-disks into my MacPro. The plastic one I used all the time for my SSD drive which never leaves the MacPro. The metal one I want to use to experiment with various laptop hard-drives in my MacPro. The order was made, delivery in New Zealand was about a week and I have used the adapter 4-5 times since. I am very happy with what I have received. The product is first class, just what I wanted and I feel happy to use it continually without fear of the plastic breaking and any hard-disk being damaged.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
