New Concept - Optional Card Reader & USB Hub for MB663UR Series

We at Icy Dock want to know what the readers out in internet land think about “card reader” and “USB hub” options for the MB663UR-1S / MB663UR-1A. These options would be able to plug into the housing like a regular hard drive tray. The user would have the option of using it internally in their system or externally with a USB connector wire in the back.

What would you, the user, be willing to pay for such options? Would this, in your opinion, be useful to your needs? Let us know your thoughts.

Enclosure that is compatible with Mac pro internal mounting system?

ICYDOCK has recently been thinking intensively about new products for the Mac user. As many of you are aware Apple Computer has jumped on the Intel Duo Core. But this is only the most advertised of their improvements. They have also greatly improved hard drive capacity on all its product offerings. Specifically with the former “G5” models now named Mac Pros. These desktops have an internal compartment that contains enough space for 4 hard drives that allows for “…Hard drive storage up to 3TB.” What do you the Mac user think about a specially designed “enclosure” that is compatible with G5 internal mounting system? How does this “Mac compatible” enclosure sound to you? Is it something that you might be interested in? Let us know your thoughts and opinions?

Here at ICYDOCK we thrive off the feed back that our customers give our products. We present to the current customer (and future one’s) a concept in the making. A “minimalist” external hard drive stand that accommodates any old hard drives that you might have lying around (IDE or SATA).It uses a screw-less mounting technique to keep the hard drives in place. What do you think? What price range do you the customer think would be reasonable for a product like this? Do you see a need for a cost effective solution of this type? Please indulge us with your comments and let us start a discussion.

Single-bay Internal enclosure compatible with MB559 Series

A very important question has come up with-in these couple of weeks that need to be addressed. It has been the case that some inquiring minds have asked about a single-bay internal enclosure compatible with the current 559 series. Here at ICYDOCK we ask ourselves,” why would anybody need an internal single bay solution that is interchangeable with the 559 series?” In comparing an internal and external single-bay solution it becomes abundantly clear that the eSATA transfer speed and internal SATA speed are the same. Both also support hot-swap capability.

What do you think? What is your take on an internal single bay solution that is compatible with our external MB559 series? It is very important that we at ICYDOCK start up a dialogue with our customers. We design through discussion. When we design new products our efforts are anchored on the complete user experience, from when you see the item in its packaging all the way until the item is fully operational.
