EZConvert Pro MB982SP-1S
Image Gallery
Icy Dock has changed the game yet again with the new EZConvert Pro MB982SP-1S Enterprise Full Metal 2.5” to 3.5” SATA SSD & HDD Converter. The MB982SP-1S is predicated off the incredibly popular MB882SP-1S-1B device, taking its general concept and improving it tenfold. This product is designed using the dimensions, connection locations, and mounting hole positions of a standard 3.5” SATA drive, so that it can be used in any internal hard drive bay, as well as with backplane and hot swap modules.
This EZConvert Pro SSD adapter series is made entirely of metal and thus provides a better cooling environment. At the same time, this extremely solid construction method is particularly suitable for industrial and military applications as well as for apllications in large companies. The MB982SP-1S can now be used with up to 15mm high SATA drives such as the Western Digital VelociRaptor at 10,000 RPM due to improvements over the original MB882 series converters. To allow the use of different height drives, we have integrated our SmartFit technology that keeps the drive in place - ranging from 9.5mm to 15mm drive height.
The MB982SP-1S 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 MB982 can handle almost any type of 2.5” SATA drives, including the 2.5” SSD, Western Digital VelociRaptor 10K RPM drives and high-capacity 1TB hard drives. To allow for 12.5mm and 15mm drive heights, we have included our Smart-Fit Technology, which secures the drive in its place whether it is a thin 7mm or thick 15mm.
The MB982 also includes most of the features that you already expect from an Icy Dock product: an effortless installation process without any tools or screws, plenty of ventilation slots to keep any drive used running cool and efficient, and a unique and stylish design. The top, front and rear allow air to flow through, and a special vent on the bottom gives the user visual confirmation that the drive has made a secure connection.
Note: For potential enterprise applications with SAS dual channel controllers and backplanes, please see the MB982IP-1S-1.

Product Reviews
Author: Steve

"The MB982SP-1S takes these generic adapters and provides you with unprecedented strength and durability from it's 1mm thick SECC steel body and strong construction. There's no doubt in my mind that the MB982SP-1S should be the number one choice for business, enterprise and even military applications. It's strong chassis will not only stand up to constant hot-swap, drive in, drive out use but will also take more abuse than you can likely throw at it"
