Many US citizens have somewhat odd notions about Europe as a continent, and even tend to blur the actual countries together into one large group. When they think of Europe, they think of castles, vineyards, large estates, etc., and a certain nobility and refinement. Truly, there is good reason for this, after all, much of what is standing in Europe is significantly older than the US, itself. Naturally, these are the areas that are going to receive attention. How much aggrandizing are you going to do over the simple towns that once housed what were, for all intents and purposes, the servants of the castle dwellers?

 

 

 

The fact of the matter is, the typical European home is actually significantly smaller than the typical US home (interesting comparison chart here [url]http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/average-home-sizes-around-the-151738[/url]). Space is at a premium and, as a result, the approach to interior decorating is quite different. The goal is typically to gain maximum functionality from every bit of space possible. Many don’t realize that Ikea’s space saving designs are absolutely the norm for the common home in Europe, and they have done a good job of translating that into US terms. Making the most use of space doesn’t end with homes, however. Current trends in computing are leaning simultaneously toward smaller cases and more storage needs, in case real estate is at a premium.

 

Simplicity and execution are the key elements of the Icy Dock MB082SPEZ-Fit Pro Dual 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter. The Icy Dock MB082SP has one simple function only, and that is to easily mount two 2.5" drives into one 3.5" internal HDD space, and it does this function very well. The MB082SP is a sturdy metal cage that perfectly emulates a standard 3.5" HDD on the outside, mounting holes and all, but inside is a housing for dual 2.5" drives, with quick and easy push button installation and tool free drive removal. The Icy Dock MB082SP is perfect for blistering fast dual SSD RAID, or any other configuration utilizing dual 2.5" drives. Using two drives in one bay naturally frees up the rest of your HDD cage and makes the best use of the space in your case.
