EZConvert Pro MB982IP-1S Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SAS/SATA SSD/HDD Converter

Icy Dock has changed the game yet again with the new EZConvert Pro MB982IP-1S 2.5” to 3.5” SATA/SAS Hard Drive/SSD Converter. The MB982 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” drive, so that it can be used in any internal hard drive bay, as well as with backplane and hot swap modules.

The new converter 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. Improving upon the original, the MB982 can now handle almost any type of 2.5” SAS and SATA drives, including the 2.5” SAS / SATA SSD, Western Digital VelociRaptor 10K RPM drives, high capacity 1TB drives and 2.5” SAS 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 9.5mm 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.

* Converts your 2.5” SATA/SAS HDD or SSD to a 3.5” SATA/SAS hard drive,
   for 3.5” SATA/SAS drive bay usage.
* Support SATA 3 (6 Gb/s) hard drive.
* Full Metal and Heavy Duty with Easy Access to Drives.
* Airflow Vents for Heat Dissipation with Anti-vibration Design.
* Universal Mounting Holes for Most Common PC Cases.
* Compatible with Most 3.5” HDD Backplanes and Hot Swap Devices.
