Introducing the ICY DOCK EZConvert Lite MB882SP-1S-3B Light Weight Open Air 2.5” to 3.5” SATA Hard Drive or SSD Converter / Mounting Kit
As the leading innovator in 2.5” drive converters, we’re often in pursuit of designing the next best thing. With the EZConvert Lite MB882SP-1S-3B, we took the already proven EZConvert MB882 series converters and maximized the air flow with open air designs that is certainly made to impress. The EZConverter Lite MB882SP-1S-3B converts 2.5 SATA/SAS hard drives or SSD of all heights (7mm to 15mm) into an exact form factor of a 3.5” SATA hard drive so you can fit your 2.5” SSD or notebook drive anywhere a 3.5” SATA drive is used (requires SAS host for SAS drives). The EZConvert Lite crafted from one piece construction makes it lightweight yet practically unbreakable –a necessary attribute for high quality system builds. Our open air design and perforated vents help keep your drives nice and cool. Anti-vibration springs help your drives from slight impact yet our drive stabilizing mechanism keeps your drives in place; it strikes a balance to carefully maintain your drives.
This converter is made for any consumer or builder looking to add a 2.5” drive to their setup, from gaming rig or media workstation to enterprise data server.
Limitless applications, unlimited purposes
The EZConvert Lite MB882SP-1S-3B converts any standard 2.5” SATA HDD/SSD into an exact 3.5” SATA hard drive form factor. It also fits 2.5” SAS HDD/SSD to provide single channel SAS functions for system with SAS capabilities.
The varieties of applications that use 3.5” hard drive are endless, some of which may include: personal desktop computer, Mac system, gaming rig, network attached storage, video rendering workstation, or enterprise data servers. Being able to reap the benefits of 2.5” HDD/SSD but still meet the requirements of the 3.5” form factor can be very rewarding. For example, Solid-State Drives provide faster data transfer speeds and lower temperature output and can be a beneficial upgrade in many systems. With MB882SP-1S-3B, you can convert 2.5” SSD or notebook drive into a 3.5” SATA drive hassle-free without speed degradation.
The EZ-Fit Design
The EZ-Fit design utilizes a number of components to accommodate all types of 2.5” SATA/SAS HDD/SSD drive heights from 7mm to 15mm. The self adjusting drive tabs on the side of the converter lock in once the drive is inserted. These are made to hold your drives firmly into place whether it’s for a slim 7mm drive or a bulky 15mm drive. Four springs located on the top of the MB882SP-1S-3B also help maintain drive position, yet at the same time absorbs a degree of shock for an added layer of drive protection for dual functionality. A Rubberized drive stabilizer installed on the driver cover adds the final piece to our EZ-Fit design, keeping your drive at the exact level it was meant to be instead of having your drives tilt out of position. This trifecta is the foundation of our EZ-Fit design. The best part is that our MB882SP-1S-3B is completely tool-less meaning you can install your drive without any tools!
With the optional bottom screw holes, this allows you to completely lock in 2.5” drives into the EZConvert Lite allowing extra drive security. The added security feature is a must have for rugged system builds that require drives to be completely immobile yet easily accessible. It’s the small details we consider that make Icydock your go-to brand.
Precisely built with Purpose
The MB882SP-1S-3B was designed with attention to detail. It begins with the overall structure built from ABS plastic –a lightweight yet tough component. Fortifying this structure is the one piece construction which means, with the exception of the drive cover, there are no moving parts (moving parts increases the odds of components breaking). Optional screw holes built around the converter make it possible to mount your MB882SP-1S-3B in numerous positions if you have a finicky chassis. Mount this converter from the side or the bottom depending on your needs.
An open air design combined with perforated vents in the front and back of the converter create the perfect environment for a hard drive. Air is allowed to flow through the front, rear, top, and bottom to disperse heat from the drive so it can be rapidly cooled. This open air frame is also designed in a way so that very little contact is made from the converter to the actual drive. This means that your hard drives aren’t being insulated or enclosed so you can keep your drive temperature low.
