Icy Dock Rolls Out 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch Converter Enclosure

Icy Dock is out with its newest single-drive enclosure that converts 2.5 inch HDDs or SSDs into 3.5 inch drives, to properly fit into PC cases with 3.5 inch bays. The Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-2B provides enclosure and ventilation for 2.5 inch drives, while connecting them to the SATA interface (data and power) in accordance with the standards, so it could be easily inserted into desktop HDD docks that use a 'cartridge-load' mechanism. Measuring 145 x 101 x 25 mm, it is the size of a the typical 3.5 inch HDD. It weighs 163 g, and is made of plastic. The unit also has a simple slide-open lid that makes handling it (installing/uninstalling 2.5 inch drives) tool-less. The Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-2B is priced at $17.

Nice box - I wonder how icy it is though.

... which one would you buy ...
Get an SSD. When you're booting into Win 7 in 18 seconds you'll forget all about the money you paid for it. ;)
The Velociraptors are not worth the price anymore - some of the quick 1tb drives are just as fast.

Simple, Functional...

It's unusual to see a product actually make so much sense these days...

Now if SSD Mnfr's would just hurry up and make a reasonable drive for a reasonable price, I just might want to buy one.

lol, anything above 10-11 seconds is slow even for vista and I don't even own a single SSD.

Good to see a good converter box, I am tired of making my own out of old hard drives.

This is getting way off topic but ... video or it didn't happen. Cold-boot too, not from sleep.

yeah, off topic indeed.

I actually was speaking of cold boot. I do not like sleep states. Video I don't even own an camera perhaps cellphone camera record, lol. hell all you need is 'Autoruns' little love with rundll32 + descent defrag = around 10-11 seconds to usable. Plus BIOS device POST time. I'm using RAID-0 on Samsung F3 500GB single platters. Ofcourse it's a bit different, if you bloat the system with some incredible size AV. lol, that alone would take 10 seconds.
