Drive enclosures and drive bay adapters, for the most part, are designed for a specific function.  Most enclosures are designed for portability and external usage, while drive bay adapters are made so that smaller drives can be mounted inside either a 3.5" or 5.25" drive bay.  Icy Dock has a new 2.5" to 3.5" SATA Converter that is essentially a combination of both. Want a ruggedly tough enclosure that will protect your 2.5" SATA drive but also give you the functional flexibility of a full-size 3.5" HDD? This product just might be what you are looking for.



With over 10 years devoted to designing, creating and distributing storage enclosure peripherals, Icy Dock continues their tradition of convenient, highly functional and uniquely designed enclosures with the MB882SP-1S-1B.  Unlike other enclosures, the MB882SP-1S-1B only has an internal SATA interface and is recommended for internal use and, unlike other drive bay adapters, the MB882SP-1S-1B has 2mm thick durable plastic encasing that makes it durable enough for transport, if need be.


The Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-1B's function is simple, it converts any standard 2.5" HDD or SSD into a 3.5" drive. The MB882SP-1S-1B was also designed to fit the 3.5" form factor and emulate an actual 3.5" drive, including rear connector and mounting hole alignment.  This means that the MB882SP-1S-1B can be placed inside another enclosure or a network attached storage or any hot swap bays that accept a standard 3.5"HDD. This unique flexibility in application separates it from other enclosures in the market.
