Icy Dock MB982IP-1S Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SAS & SATA Hard Drive & SSD Converter Review

Article Index

As technology grows better, it usually shrinks in size. We all know this to be true and have seen it happen year over year. The speeds in desktop computers end up in laptops, and since the surge in smartphones, we are even starting to see growing power there. The same has been true of hard drives, as their size has been making huge growths as even 2tb drives have breached the $100 price point.

 

When you look for capacity in a hard drive, their size format is on par with the 3.5" format being the most popular. The emergence of Solid State drives has brought a use for 2.5" drives outside of the laptop and into the desktop, though. This is great for speed, but not many cases come with a home for the 2.5" format. Conversion kits and brackets are easy to find, though if you planned to use it in a rack mount, these often fall short and won't fit the enclosure.

 

The Icy Dock MB982IP-1S Full Metal 2.5 to 3.5" Enclosure takes any 2.5" SATA drive and converts into a full 3.5" format. The Icy Dock MB982IP-1S is entirely metal and follows the Icy Dock modus operandi of easy installation without tools. With the outside matching both the size format, as well as the screw placements of a standard 3.5" drive, the MB982IP-1S can be installed in nearly anything that can be used with a 3.5" drive from installing in your case, NAS, server or anything you can think of.
