MB882SP: SATA 2.5' to 3.5' converter

Have you ever wanted to put a 2.5” SATA hard drive inside your computer? How about having a 2.5” SATA hard drive inside one of our 3.5” enclosures and have the desire to carry it around without damaging the hard drive? Do you have a 2.5” SATA hard drive laying around from your old laptop, but never had any opportunity to use it? Need a computer with an Solid-State hard drive inside your system?

If you answered yes, then we have a product just for you that will suit your need. I want to introduce ICY DOCK’s MB882SP-1S series, the enclosure that converts any 2.5” SATA drive into a 3.5” SATA hard drive. Placing a 2.5” SATA drive into one of our MB882 series is very simple and requires no tools or screws to install the drive. Installing the 2.5” SATA drive requires only to slide in the hard drive into the MB882, and taking out the drive will not take any effort. The MB882SP-1S is made out of durable plastic, which protects your hard drive from any scratches or smudges. There are open ventilations on the front and back of the case to keep your hard drive cool. The color of the converter comes in black and white.

This product is very useful for those who prefer speed on their computer because this converter can also take in 2.5” Solid-State Disk (SSD) drives as well. Using this converter will not result in any reduction in transfer speed. One convenient factor about this converter is that it fits into all of ICY DOCK’s enclosures as well as most 3.5” SATA HDD enclosures. A recommended product to use with this converter is the MB671 and MB672 series because it requires no tray. This allows you to plug in your 2.5” SATA drive into the converter, and the converter into the computer for instant access.

So if you are ever in the market for a 2.5” SATA drive, consider purchasing the MB882SP-1S as well. For more information, please visit our website at

I wanted to introduce a new product from ICY DOCK. It's called an EZ-dock, and it's our first docking station for 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives. It provides a USB for universal support and e-SATA for 3 Gb/sec transfer rates. If using a 2.5" SATA drive, power adapter is not necessary. Simply connect the USB bus into the computer and you are ready to use the hard drive. The on/off toggle switch makes it easy to conserve energy and extend the life of a drive. The stand is easily detachable and allows the dock for better portability. Take a look at the picture, and you can see that the hard drive is not enclosed so it allows better heat dissipation.

For all the photographers and video editors out there who needs to carry around their hard drives, we provide a carrying case which allows you to carry your dock and 2.5” hard drive anywhere you go (carrying case will include with the dock). This lightweight dock can lay on any surface for hard drive stability and is small enough to grasp with just a hand. This simply, yet elegant, design will definitely stand out in any room and will work on any Windows and Mac systems.

Here are the features:

+Supports both 3.5” & 2.5” SATA I/II hard drives
+When using 2.5" SATA drive, power adapter and cable is not required (only the USB bus)
+Design for PC & Mac systems
+Plug & play design. Easy to install / swap hard drive in 5 sec
+On/off switch allows hard drive life expendability and energy conservation.
+Stand is detachable for portable use.
+Support eSATA connection for maximum SATA performance.
+Carry case protect your hard drive and important data when using as portable 2.5” enclosure.
+Simple stylish elegant design

Internal rack unit that is compatible with the MB559 tray?

Icy Dock always strides in providing convenience in storage, and we would want to make sure that our loyal customers are always satisfied with our products. So we want to get your feedback for a new product we’re thinking of releasing.

Here is the scenario: You come home from work with all your work information on your MB559 external hard drive. You take out the hard drive only to find that you have to unscrew the hard drive to place it inside the internal enclosure unit. But you decide not to do that and you just go for a USB connection. Now you have to plug in the USB cable to the back of the computer (What a drag!). Maybe you have an MB453 and decide to use that instead of MB559, and you find yourself left with two open slots and it looks hideous. If that has ever happened to you, or you don’t want this to happen to you, we need to hear from you.

Anyone who has purchased an MB559 knows that the tray can also be stored into an MB453, MB454, MB455 and MB561 series. So we are deciding if we should create an internal rack that fits inside a 5.25” slot. We want to hear your thoughts on creating a new single, internal rack unit that is compatible with the MB559 tray. Your feedback can affect what features it will have, such as key lock, cool LED design, and others that will revolutionize the way hard drive enclosures are built.

We would like to know if this is a product you might be interested in, because who’s to say that the scenario above never happens. Please give us your feedback if you might be interested in purchasing such a product and what kind of features you would want on it.
