CONVERSION KITS
New release
The EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B is a great choice if you’re looking to install 1 or 2 SSDs/2.5” HDDs into a internal single 3.5” drive bay. If you’re looking for storage density, compatibility, flexibility, and durability without the hassle of a complicated installation, go with the EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B. It’s never been easier to effortlessly install 2.5” drives in a system. We, IcyDock, put a lot of thought into the design to fulfill the needs of our customers, whether they’re building Home Theater Systems (HTPC), Gaming PCs, or Mini-IPX systems. Our EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Effortless Installation
 
IcyDock continues to raise the level of exceptional craftsmanship and design that our products are renowned for. The EZ-Fit Lite is our newest 2.5” HDD/SSD bracket and we’ve pulled out all the stops to engineer this unit to be both user-friendly and highly advanced. The EZ-Fit Lite accepts up to 2 x 2.5” SATA, or IDE SSD/HDD drive from 7mm to 9.5mm in drive height, which uses a completely new flex design system to simplify our drive installation process –all you need to do is insert the drive, and push inwards until it “clicks.” Our EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B has self adjusting tabs on the side that automatically conform to different drive heights (7mm and 9.5mm) to securely lock it in place. Lastly, the eject button allows for quick hard drive swapping in a matter of seconds without removing the entire bracket from the chassis. The best part about this device is it’s completely tool-less drive installation –just insert the drive and you’re set. It doesn’t get any easier.
Brilliant Design
 
We have blended a combination of flexibility & compatibility to create the EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B - a product that cannot be replicated by any of our competitors. The EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B provides a whopping 60 screw holes to accommodate 3.5” bay installation in practically every computer chassis. Compare this with a standard 3.5” hard drive that only offers a measly 10 screw holes, and you’re offered a lot more options. In addition to 60 screw holes, there are 12 different ways you can mount the EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B in your system in comparison to the 2 positions you get with a standard 3.5” drive; this gives you option to finely tune and adjust your drive installation. There are screw holes located both on top of the unit and on bottom to give you extra compatibility. Furthermore, the plethora of screw holes provides a backup measure in case of installation failure.
Unbelievably Lightweight with Remarkable Cooling
 
Our EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B is constructed with highly robust ABS plastic and fuses desirable traits such as durability and lightweight. One piece construction means there are less moving parts to be concerned with, which in turn means it’s less likely break. Additionally, creating a one-piece design makes manufacturing this unit very cost efficient and allows us to pass the savings onto our customers. The frame has a weightless flexible stabilizer that secures the drive in place and provides shock absorption and anti-vibration properties –great for protecting your drives against impact. Open air designs allow the drive to be cooled by the fans in your chassis. With our skeletal design, the EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B allows airflow in all the crucial areas of the drive which helps drive performance. Elevated ridges on the platform raise the drive just enough to allow heat dispersion keeping your SSD/HDD cooler. We’ve also included side vents on the bracket to let heat escape from the drive

User Testimonials
"Works great on win7+ (not on XP-). I love the fan/led controls and the cooling is fabulous... I'm in a hot area of the building and have mini-fans all over the place, including external USB drives, but none required for the ICY DOCK! I have 2 and will be getting more as the need arises."

"The Blizzard has a uniquely designed front panel integrated with a massive 80mm fan for an elegant and non-intrusive design for the best ventilation, all in a single 3.5” hard drive design that is installed into the front of the enclosure."

"The Icy Dock Blizzard does what is it designed to do, which is to keep your external hard drive cool under the most aggressive usage or for your everyday backup drive. Very heavy users of their external drives can certainly benefit from the easy to use design and added cooling the Blizzard offers"

"It was a real joy testing the Icy Dock MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard and MB559U3S-1S Ultra Slim Enclosures. They are very well made and durable."

"There’s no arguing that it is an enclosure that is effective at keeping your disk drive cool and keeps you posted on the current temperature status to boot. Despite being largely plastic, it still felt more solid than the aluminum InfoSafe (and certainly beat the pants off it in every other respect)."

"With the Icy Dock (ID on the Chart) reading 5º C lower than the passively cooled Thermaltake BlacX 5G (Tt on the chart) it is a definite winner at keeping a drive cooler."

"Icy Dock is doing things the right way again with the new Blizzard 3.5” Extrenal HDD Enclosure. External HDD Enclosures are simple items, but the Icy Dock Blizzard enclosure takes all of the features one step further and couples that with outstanding build quality and engineering. On the performance end, the Blizzard offers USB 3.0/2.0 and eSATA connectivity to go along with 6Gb/s compatibility to get the most speed from your hard drive, but Icy Dock also adds a very interesting feature set. The Icy Dock Blizzard uses an 80mm fan with active cooling to keep your drive running cool. The fan features selectable high and low speeds, as well as an automatic setting which keeps the fan running at the optimal speed to cool the drive while remaining silent.

Pros: HDD Temps 25% Lower Than Sealed Enclosures"
