The ICY DOCK ExpressCage MB732SPO-B lets you use your 5.25” bay to its fullest extent by installing two hot-swappable 2.5” HDD / SSD bays, and a CD-ROM/DVD/Blu-Ray disc reader bay. To maximize compatibility, the disc reader bay can be used with either a slim (12.7mm) or ultra-slim (9.5mm) disc reader using an included multi-purpose spacer. Additionally, the innovative tray design expands compatibility to all 2.5” HDDs and SSDs, up to 15mm in height, and uses built-in pegs in place of screws for easy 100% tool-less installation. Full-metal chassis with plenty of ventilation holes keeps your drives safe from environmental damage and overheating issues.

 

The ExpressCage MB732SPO-B is perfect in systems needing to maximize their space efficiency; Small-form factor systems, Home-Theater PCs with media collections on drives and discs, and photo/video editors working with traditionally stored files and files stored on DVDs and Blu-Rays.

Maximize Space Efficiency
 
 
The ExpressCage MB732SPO-B is designed to unlock the full potential of the external 5.25” bay. By combining a slim/ultra-slim CD-ROM/DVD/Blu-Ray disc reader bay and 2x hot-swappable 2.5” HDD/SSD bays, the MB732SPO-B provides a dense unified solution for managing optical disks, hard drives, and SSDs for small-form-factor and home-theater PC (HTPC) systems, without compromising storage or expandability.

Multifunctional Detachable ODD Faceplate

The MB732SPO-B comes with a multifunctional detachable faceplate for the CD-ROM/DVD/Blu-Ray ODD slot. When no disc reader is installed, or when using an ultra-slim (9.5mm) disc reader, the faceplate becomes a protective front dust cover, protecting your internal components from overheating due to accumulated dust blocking ventilation holes. The faceplate can be easily hidden and stored inside of the enclosure with a specially design housing spot for the faceplate.

To install a slim ODD (12.7mm height), simply insert your slim ODD into the MB732SPO-B and secure the device with included screws. The Multifunctional ODD bay faceplate can also be used as a spacer when a thinner ultra slim ODD (9.5mm height) is installed.
Packed with Features
 
Each of MB732SPO-B’s drive bays has its own indicator light to notify you of any drive activity, preventing drive damage by alerting you when your drive is in use. A blue LED is easily visible, without casting too much light and straining your eyes.
Each drive bay has its own power switch, saving power when not in use. Because you don’t have to physically remove the drive, using the power switch protects the internal connectors from wear and erosion of their protective coatings.
 
The ExpressCage MB732SPO-B supports both 7-pin SATA and 15-pin SATA power cables with locking latches, so you’ll never need to worry about cables unintentionally disconnecting from your enclosure. Once these cables are connected, they’ll lock into place and stay that way.
Innovative ExpressTray Design
 
The ExpressCage MB732SPO-B uses an intelligently engineered tray design that requires no tools or screws. Built-in pegs insert into the screw holes of your drive to provide a secure hold in seconds, saving you time over traditional trays needing a screwdriver.
When additional security is required, such as when transporting drives outside of the enclosure, the included screws can be used to further secure drives and prevent them from falling out in transit.
Designed for Security and Protection
 
The ExpressCage MB732SPO-B was designed with drive security and protection in mind. A full-metal frame protects against external hazards and ensures the enclosure lasts through thousands of insertion/removal cycles. Ventilation holes are amply placed throughout the enclosure, to maximize air cooling and ensure that your drives stay cool even under heavy load.
 
Anti-vibration rubber stoppers are placed inside the enclosure, which holds the drive firmly in place and protects drive from vibration damage. Anti-vibration is particularly important for mechanical hard drive that put out excessive vibration and noise, which is greatly reduced the MB732SPO-B.

Optional EZConvert MB703M2P-B for M.2 SATA SSD

Frequent Asked Questions
Q: Does MB732SPO-B support the new SATA 3.3 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?

A: The MB732SPO-B does not support the SATA 3.3 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB732SPO-B, the drive will not spin, and the system won't detect the drive. See the list below for known SATA HDD/SSD with the PWDIS feature.

Note: the SAS hard drive or SSD does not use the Pin 3 of SATA power connector for PWDIS feature and compatible with MB732SPO-B.

 

While we recommend to avoid using the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS, you can use the methods below to disable the PWDIS feature physically if you already purchased the drive:

 

Method 1 – Using the Molex to SATA adapter or cable to disconnect the power to Pin 3 of the SATA power connector.

 

Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable
Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable

 

Method 2 – Placing Kapton tape on Pin 1-3 of the SATA power connector to isolate the 3.3V power, as shown below.
