Introducing the ICY DOCK MB882SP-1S-2B: another milestone in our 2.5” SSD product line. Through manufacturing efficiency, we have managed to redesign the original MB882SP-1S-1B without any sacrifice to our standard of high quality products. The new version is lighter weight for simplicity and cost efficiency. It is very convenient for gamers and power users who expect SSD speed on their home/ office computers. Some other new elements to the converter are viewing slots placed over the SATA connection, allowing the user to verify their HDD or SSD has made a secure connection. This also functions as an extra set of airflow vents for extra cooling with your SSD or HDD. Overall, a lightweight and simplistic design that is perfect for power users, gamers, and average computer users for use in their desktops, media centers, and home servers.
Top Customer Reviews
Installing the SSD into the Icy Dock is a tool-less affair. An ingenious, rotating "flap" clamps onto the back of the SSD when the top cover of the Icy Dock is slid on; therefore, the SSD is held securely onto the Icy Dock's internal SATA connectors. The outside of the Icy Dock has all of the mounting holes expected for a normal 3.5'' hard drive, so the Icy Dock is interchangeable with all standard 3.5'' drives. Four mounting screws are even included. (These screws were not needed for mounting the Icy Dock onto a Mac Pro drive sled.)
However, most of the "adapter" and "conversion" kits I encountered when shopping seem to be intended for mounting with screws or rails in a PC's main drive cage. This one would work for that too, I'm sure, but those others would definitely not work in hot-swap trays.
The reason this one works so beautifully is that the exterior of this product is actually a faithful reproduction of a 3.5 inch drive, with screw holes and cable connections in precisely the same places that an actual drive would have them. For all practical purposes, this is indeed a 3.5 inch drive, except that it has your 2.5 inch drive connected on the inside doing the actual job.
Bottom line: If you need a way to put a 2.5 inch drive into a 3.5 inch hot-swap tray, like I needed in order to insert use an SSD boot disk in my chassis, this is the one. Get it.
(Or get the metal version, if that's your taste, since I imagine it's functionally identical; I see no need, though, since this one is plenty sturdy enough for every use I can think of.)
**SPECIAL DIRECTIONS FOR SMALLER SSDs"
By "smaller" I am referring to the height of the SSD. SSDs like the Samsung 840 Pro are only 7mm in height. This Icy Dock Converter (Model: MB882SP-1S-2B) is specifically designed for SSDs that are 9.5mm tall. If you have a smaller SSD, then the directions as shown in the diagrams or instructions will NOT work. That is to say, simply inserting the SSD and closing the hatch will not connect your SSD to the converter properly. Your BIOS or computer will not detect the SSD. I am guessing that a number of the reviews claiming that this item did not work are the result of this fact.
To install a smaller SSD, you have to perform what is called a "manual installation." Icy Dock has made a YouTube video on the process here: [...] Its a little hard to see what the person is doing, but the key is to make sure the connectors are fully connected (There should just be a very small gap that remains-you can see it in the video).
My method for installing (for smaller SSDs):
1) Place the SSD into the converter
2) You will see inside the converter where the retainer for the SSD is cutout so that you can grip the SSD on its sides (This space would normally be used so that you can pull the SSD out from the connector).Read more ›
As for the product itself, this version is ok. Two of the four I ordered arrived DOA, but thanks to Amazons frictionless exchange policy this did not cost anything but a couple of days time. While this version is compatible with 7mm drives, it can be tricky to install them properly. Once installed however these work great for making a 2.5 drive (HDD or SSD) into a standards compliant 3.5" drive. I installed four into a Mac Pro no problem, using a combination of HDD, SSD/ 7mm, 9.5mm.
