Icy Dock is proud to announce a game changing product in its line-up: the MB668U3-1SB USB 3.0 Mobile Enclosure. This device handles most standard 2.5” SATA HDD and SSD and allows the user to connect it to their system using SuperSpeed USB3.0 for transfer rates up to 5 Gb/s! For systems which have not yet upgraded to USB 3.0, the MB668U3-1SB is backwards compatible to use with any USB 2.0 port on Mac or PC systems.
The MB668U3-1SB is predicated off the popular MB668US-1SB and MB668U-1SB, featuring an ultra light weight aluminum construction that draws away the heat, and a hassle-free installation method; no tools or screws are required to insert a drive into the unit. On the front of the device is a cool blue LED to notify the user of the drive’s status, and is seen through ventilation slots that maximize airflow across the drive.
Finally, on the rear of the device, a micro-USB 3.0 port and a DC in connection to use the USB-to-DC cable which is included with the device. This is to use with some larger capacity drives which may require additional power.
