ICY TIP: The Best 2.5/3.5 IDE/SATA USB 3.0 Hard Drive Docking Station with Portable Adapter
The docking station has been the IT and average user’s biggest asset as the biggest features are its compatibility and flexibility. With an abundant variety in the market however, it makes it difficult to distinct from the good ones to the great ones. Most docking stations only come with the most basic features that do not provide anything else to be multi faceted when faced with different situations. With the MB981U3-1SA, we have taken the docking station and make it how it should be used.
One of the biggest complaints is the ease of use with many other docking stations. But with the MB981U3-1SA, we have improved the design to provide an excellent experience without very much hassle. Many docking stations either have a very small eject button or none at all depending on the design. The MB981U-1SA uses a large eject button to make it easy to eject a hard drive. Another improvement is with the two part dust cover. This is one design that is important because other docking stations lack the same feature. This benefits greatly with use of a 2.5” hard drive, as the smaller portion of the dust cover will open up and protect the electronics from such as dust or debris.
Improving on just a couple of features may or may not sell the product, so the world’s first detachable mobile adapter has been integrated into the MB981U3-1SA. This is what the average IT dreams about when they sleep, an ultra portable USB 3.0 adapter that can also be used as a docking station. It is so small that it can fit in the palm of your hand. The MB981U3-1SA takes the versatility even further by providing compatibility for both 2.5/3.5 IDE and SATA hard drives. IT people do not have to worry about bringing an IDE and SATA adapter any longer as they can just bring the MB981U3-1SA in either its mobile form or the docking station.
The MB981U3-1SA changed the way of thinking on how the docking station should be used. By incorporating the newest interface with USB 3.0, adding impressive compatibility of 2.5/3.5 IDE and SATA hard drives, the MB981U3-1SA is the most versatile and unique enclosure on the market.
