Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between the MB882SP-1S-1B and the MB882SP-1S-2B?
The "-1B"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ version is the first of its kind in this product line. The top door hinges open, and the drive is connected and disconnected to the SATA interface via a metal tray that slides into and out of the connection as the door opens and closes.
The "-2B"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ version was our second addition to this product line and is what we call our "simple version"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ. This device uses a top door that comes all the way off, and uses a simpler mechanism to connect the drive to the SATA connection. As the door is slid into place, it pushes a flap inside the box which in turn pushes the drive into the SATA connection.
What is the difference between MB882SP-1S-1B(2B) and MB382SP-3B and MB982SP-1S?
The MB882SP-1S-1B(2B) is the first 2.5" to 3.5" hard drive or SSD converter with an overall sturdy, reliable construction with easy access to the drive perfect for system integrators and IT professionals.
The MB982SP-1S is based off the MB882 series design but utilizes a full metal design creating a better environment for cooling, as well as giving it a rock solid construction ideal for industrial, enterprise, and military applications.
The MB382SP-3B is a new design based off the MB982SP-1S but with added open air design with exceptional cooling.
Will this converter allow me to fit my 2.5"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ SATA hard drive or SSD into a 3.5" bay?
The MB882SP-1S-1B is a 2.5" to 3.5"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ hard drive converter. It will fit any standard 2.5"ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ SATA hard drive or SSD into any standard 3.5" hard drive bay.
Will using this converter affect performance in any way?
This converter will not affect performance in any way because the device interface is essentially a bypass. It will be like the hard drive is directly connected to the motherboard.
Does the MB882SP-1S-1B support Samsung 840 series SSDs?
Yes, this converter will support all 7-9.5mm 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD
Does the MB882SP-1S-1B support SATA III hard drive or SSD with SATA III interface?

"Icy Dock EZConvert and EZConvert Pro products simplify the integration of 2.5-inch storage products in what is still a 3.5-inch world"
"Icy Dock has a great solution for those wanting to use 2.5” SSD, SAS or Hybrid hard drives in existing hardware that only supports 3.5” hard drives. Purchasing of these converters would be a cheaper solution than swapping out other hardware. With no loss of performance, there is no reason you have to replace your hardware just to take advantage of the latest 2.5” hard drives."
"The way the Icy Dock HDD Convertor works is rather slick, you set the drive on the rail, then you close the lid, closing the lid pushes the drive forward into the SATA connections on the PCB board inside and effectively locks it into place.The Icy Dock 2.5″ to 3.5″ Hard Drive Converter is a great little product that can be very useful, it’s well made and really it’s just a great little product. I can easily recommend this product as it’s simple and works great."
"the fact that all solid state disks are in the 2.5 inch format has created a problem for consumers who wants to have SSDs in their desktop systems. For the time being there are very few solutions like this so Icy Dock is in a good spot with this enclosure"
"This converter is in all regards a rather simple product, but thanks to its ease-of-use and very sturdy build-quality, it's well-worth a purchase if you want a more robust mount for your SSD. It sure beats the pants off simple metal brackets that are also being sold."
