M.2 to SSD Converter
ICY DOCK’s EZConvert MB703M2P-B is a complete solution to convert any M.2 SATA SSD into the exact dimensions and port locations as a standard 2.5” SATA SSD (9.5mm height). Designed for compatibility, it accepts all M.2 sizes from 30mm to 80mm in length, mounting them without screws or tools, and allows these drives to be installed anywhere that accepts a bare 2.5” drive, such as a 2.5” drive bay, 2.5” mounting bracket, or in any of ICY DOCK’s 2.5” drive enclosures. MB703M2P-B protects the delicate circuit board of your M.2 SSDs from bumps and drops.
Make M.2 SSD Swappable
Hot-Swap M.2 Design
Because M.2 SSDs are not designed to be swapped, their connectors are very delicate, typically rated for only 250 insertion/removal cycles. When used with the EZConvert MB703M2P-B, M.2 SATA SSDs can be swapped without putting any wear on the M.2 SSD connector, instead using ICY DOCK’s SATA connector rated for 10,000 insertion/removal cycles, making it easy to add, remove, and replace drives.
Perfect Compatibility
Same Dimension as 2.5
Tool-less Push to open design
The 1-piece lid has a sturdy EZ-press latch, to stand up to frequent drive swaps. Simply press the latch in to open the lid, revealing the drive bay for easy installation, removal, or drive replacement.
The adjustable M.2 locker slides to accommodate all standard M.2 SATA SSD lengths, including 2230 (30mm), 2242 (42mm), 2260 (60mm), and 2280 (80mm). The locker clips into the SSDs screw hole to secure the drive without the need for screws or tools.
Note: the converter does not support M.2 NVMe SSDs. Please refer to the FAQ fitting guide for more details.
Because the MB703M2P-B uses the standardized 2.5” form factor, it can be installed into any 2.5” drive backplane or 2.5” drive bay that supports 9.5mm to 15mm height 2.5” drives, such as our flexiDOCK, ExpressCage, or several ToughArmor models. This lets you expand the capabilities of your existing 2.5” devices by adding M.2 SATA SSD support to them.
ICY DOCK's EZConvert MB703M2P-B not only allows you to convert M.2 SATA drives into a 2.5" drive form factor, but also, when used in combination with an aftermarket SATA to USB 3.1 adapter cable or docking station, you can easily convert the MB703M2P-B into an external M.2 SATA drive to access your data anywhere at any time.
Built to Last
MB703M2P-B's body and lid each use a 1-peice design, constructed from a single piece of strong ABS plastic, to strengthen the enclosure and give your drive a physical layer of protection against drops and bumps. One-piece construction is preferred over multiple pieces, as the connection between two pieces creates a weak point that is prone to failure.
Packed with Features
The lid and body have ventilation holes amply placed throughout the enclosure, working with your computer's cooling system to cool the drive and protect it from overheating damage, which can lead to data loss.
ICY DOCK's EZConvert MB703M2P-B was specifically designed to provide maximum cooling efficiency to prevent speed throttling on SATA M.2 drives. Air vent holes sit right underneath the SATA M.2 drive, giving the drive enough air flow while doing intensive reads and writes. Moreover, to allow more air circulation, these air venting holes can be removed physically to reveal a cutout, allowing users to install M.2 drive heatsinks or simply leave it open for an increased cooling effect.
The MB703M2P-B supports the full SATA III bandwidth specifications of up to 6Gbps, letting you take full advantage of the fastest M.2 SATA SSDs available.

ICY DOCK MB795SP-B & MB703M2P-B Review


"The PCB is simply and firmly held in the EZConvert and the tool-free installation is easy. Although the EZConvert is made almost entirely of plastic and feels exactly the same, it fulfills its purpose perfectly!....."

ICY DOCK Tough Armor Lite MB607SP-B 4-bay 5.25" Enclosure & EZConvert MB703M2P-B Review
"It is a deceptively simple design with a completely tool-free approach right down to the drive length adjustment – a bracket that can slide to accommodate drives from 30 – 80 mm (2230 – 2280). With the drive in place the case closes with a snap, the entire process taking only a few seconds. Certainly the convenience factor is very high with this design, which feels robust though it is made of plastic. The rear of the adapter also offers a punch-out section for further ventilation should you require it."

Frequent Asked Questions
Q: Which type of M.2 SSDs are compatible with the converter?

A: The converter is compatible with 1 x B / B + M Key M.2 SATA SSD 2230/2242/2260/2280. Please see the the compatibility image below:

Q: I'm having the difficulties closing the lid of the drive tray and unable to insert the drive tray all the way to the drive enclosure after placing the M.2 SSD onto the drive tray.

A: Make sure to lock the M.2 SSD with the adjustable M.2 locker. The tray lid will not close properly if the M.2 locker is not fully secured. If you are having difficulty secure the M.2 locker or close the cover, the M.2 SSD you are using may not follow the standard M.2 SSD thickness, which is less than 1.5mm height for each side with a total height that does not exceed 3.8mm. Using the M.2 SSD with non-standard thickness will cause improper tension on the M.2 locker and tray lid and make the M.2 connector misaligned. If you are having issues inserting the drive tray to the enclosure, please stop the operation immediately and check the drive thickness to ensure it follows the standard M.2 SSD thickness - less than 1.5mm height for each side and less than 3.8mm for total height.

Metal heat dissipation sticker


Note: Some M.2 SSD uses a metal heat dissipation sticker that causes each side's thickness more than the 1.5mm. Remove the sticker will solve the problem, but do it at your own risk (might void the warranty of SSD)


ICY DOCK enclosure is design to be compatible with M.2 SSD that has standard thickness. We highly recommend checking the drive thickness before purchase, and please refer to the incompatible M.2 SSD list below for further information:
