SSD MOUNTING BRACKETS / UPGRADE KITS
   
Change can lead to more innovative and groundbreaking products which is the path we have taken here at Icy dock. First, we had the popular EZConvert MB882 and EZConvert Pro MB982 converter series which allowed 2.5” drives to take the 3.5” form factor in a fully enclosed device. Up until recently, our customers have been seeking a similar device with an open air design with exceptional cooling, and the EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B is our response. The EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B converts any 2.5” SATA HDD/SSDs into 3.5” Hard drives. It will also fit 2.5” SAS HDDs to provide single channel SAS functions (requires SAS host for SAS drives). The EZConvert Air features an extremely robust stainless-steel exterior with a cleverly designed locking mechanism to keep your drives immobile. The open air design, ventilated slots, and metal construction all work simultaneously to keep your drives as cool as possible.
2.5” Drive Support For All 3.5” Bays
 
With the abundance of 2.5” SSDs and hard drives combined with the steady drop in price, it’s a great time to purchase more storage. Many computer cases on the market do not have built in support for 2.5” SSD/HDD which makes a 2.5” to 3.5” HDD/SSD converter an absolute necessity when purchasing 2.5” SSDs or hard drives. For enterprise, it’s valuable for upgrading file servers without paying a tremendous amount for an entire system upgrade.
With its self-adjusting mechanism design, the EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B accepts 2.5” SATA/SAS SSD/HDD of any height from 7mm to 15mm and keeps your drive stable while the spring tension drive clamp provides shock absorption. The EZConvert Air has the exact same form factor of a 3.5” hard drive, including the outer dimension, location of the SATA connector, and the mounting holes for both side and bottom allowing it to fit perfectly into any standard 3.5" SATA drive bay including HDD mobile racks, cages, external enclosures, PC, Mac, file servers and more. Any system that takes the standard 3.5” SATA HDD is compatible with the EZConvert Air MB382SP-3B.
With the optional bottom screw holes, this allows you to completely lock in 2.5” drives into the EZConvert Air allowing extra drive security. The added security feature is a must have for rugged system builds that require drives to be completely immobile yet easily accessible. It’s the small details we consider that make Icydock your go-to brand.
Convenience Meets Practicality
 
It’s never been easier to install your 2.5” HDD/SSD. Simply press on the latch to open the locking mechanism, insert your SSD or hard drive into the SATA connector, and close the latch and you’re ready to go. The EZConvert Air does not require any tools for SSD or drive installation, effectively decreasing installation time and labor of maintenance. The open design of this converter gives you quick access to your drives when the situation arises. If you need to swap drives, you can do so with ease.
For customers that swap their drives a lot, the built in SATA PCB bridge protects your HDD/SSD connector from wearing out during the insertion and removal cycle, and it delivers the full speed of SATA 6Gbps without any speed reduction.
Advanced Cooling Design
 
There’s a reason we coined the name “EZConvert Air”–because of how much airflow this converter allows. With its open air design, heat can rapidly escape from your drives during your most intensive applications. This in turn can lead to better performance since excessive heat may slow down your system. Strategically placed ventilated slots surround the converter allowing heat to escape from all sides and angles, while the metal frame acts as a giant heat sink to quickly cool your hard drives. The open air design, ventilated slots, and metal frame combine to produce an advanced cooling system to put your mind at ease.

"EZConvert Air converter/mounting kit offers a pretty good way to do so. Icy Dock's tool-less installation makes for quick and painless mounting and its self-adjusting mechanism allows the device to support a range of drive heights: from a slim 7mm to a thick 15mm. In addition, Icy Dock's EZConvert air even has extra screw holes for those paranoid users who need that extra drive security peace-of-mind.

We were also pretty impressed with Icy Dock's focus on cooling with the EZConvert Air kit, as it as it has ventilated slots that all around the converter and the top is completely uncovered."
