Icy Dock MB559U3S Ultra Slim 3.5in USB 3.0 and eSATA Enclosure Review

Everyone has their own taste on what wallpaper they want to put on their desktop, but it's usually something people consider pleasing to the eye. If you work in front of a computer all day, the last thing you need is to stare at something unattractive. This is why I consider blocking the ability to change desktop wallpaper on office computers torture. I can understand putting the company logo on as a wallpaper when you are staging a photo shoot for the investors but being constantly reminded that you are at work is soul crushing and arguably, less productive compared to using a wallpaper that makes you happy or puts a smile on your face.

 

The real estate on top of your work desk is just as valuable and keeping everything organized makes for a productive work environment.  If you need an external hard drive or two, you would want to avoid something bulky and ugly staring at you for the entire work day.  Icy Dock builds many external enclosures for different uses but their updated Ultra Slim series enclosures are perfect for any modern work desk.

 

The Icy Dock MB559U3S-1S is an ultra slim HDD enclosure equipped with USB 3.0 and e-SATA connectivity.  The Icy Dock MB559U3S-1S has an aluminum frame and comes in pearl white or matte black design.  Compatible with SATA3 6G 3.5-inch hard drives, the MB559U3S-1S measures 141.2 x 31.2 x 191 mm and weights 527 grams.
