EXTERNAL HDD ENCLOSURES
Discontinued


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.
Product Features:
 
* Fits any standard 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD of up to 9.5mm height

* SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection for 5 Gb/s
   transfer rates

* Maximum transfer rate up to 480 Mbps via
   USB 2.0

* Backwards compatible USB 2.0 or 1.1 for
   universal connectivity on Mac and PC

* Plug & Play without rebooting the computer

* User friendly Screw-less design just plug in
   the hard drive and play

* Stylish aluminum construction provides
   protection, mobility, and optimal cooling

* Built-in blue LED. Less bright, less visible,
   less annoying

* Leather pouch included to keep your drive clean
   and scratch-free

* Included “DC to USB A Type” power cable for
   high performance HDD usage

Note: The device supports USB 2.0 speed when connected with USB 2.0 ports. To achieve accurate USB 3.0 transfer speed, the host end must be connected to a USB 3.0 port. Transfer speed may also vary depending on hard drive speed.

"Overall the Icy Dock MB6668U3-1SB is an easy to use and install portable enclosure. Its tool-free design gives you a less than 60-second install, making this great for people on the go. It’s small and elegant design, along with included leather pouch; make it perfect for business people or people that are always on the go. This small device supports powerful speeds for its size, which is why Tech Arkade would like to award it a 10.0 out of 10.0 score and the Tech Arkade Gold Award."
