Product Spotlight - MB663 Series

This month, we want to feature our MB663 Series of 2.5” Drive Enclosures.

First, we have our MB663UB. It fits any standard SATA hard drives or solid state drives, and encloses it in a beautiful black or silver aluminum case. It uses a built-in USB cable to connect to just about any device, ranging from high definition gaming consoles, to a network storage device. And with a transfer rate of up to 480 MB/sec, it will be perfect for streaming your favorite HD movies and pictures to the big screen!

Last but not least, let us introduce you to our MB663USR. Internally, you take full advantage of the transfer speed that SATA offers, with rates as high as 3.0 GB/sec! Now, lets say you finished backing up your HD movie collection in a few minutes, simply press an eject button, and your collection has become portable, complete with a built-in mini-USB port. Now, plug it into your media case, gaming console, or transfer it to your laptop for a road trip! The possibilities are nearly endless.

With HDTV and hard drive prices dropping, and the size of movie files increasing, let us help you maximize your media experience with our MB663 Series Enclosure.
