    Icy Dock is proud to introduce its upgrade version of the dual bay RAID enclosure that set the standard for professionals, the MB662USEB-2S. This product combines the feature sets of the current MB662 Series into the ultimate RAID device for media professionals and individuals looking for performance, backups and storage expansion.

    Similar to the current models, the MB662USEB-2S still utilizes an aluminum construction so that it is light weight for portability, and has the necessary material for optimal heat dissipation and durability. To help with temperature management, the cooling fan has been upgraded to an ultra quiet Sunon MagLev 40mm fan, and still features a speed control to allow the user flexibility according to his or her sound or cooling preferences.

    The main addition to this new version is the quad interface design, allowing for USB 2.0, eSATA, FireWire 800, and FireWire 400, giving the user access to the best performance whether the data is needed on a Mac, Windows, and Linux system. Also, using an updated RAID controller, this unit can now accept 2TB drives in each slot to use in all 3 RAID modes, and thanks to a new concatenated JBOD mode, the user can have a combined storage volume without the risk for total data loss. The data is written across a single drive, and when it becomes full, it moves to the next drive, so if a drive fails, only the data on that drive will be lost. This is perfect for media players and NAS routers where a single combined volume is ideal. And as always, RAID 0 and RAID 1 are built in to offer blazing fast performance or maximum data redundancy.

    Product Features:
    • Support 2TB+ in each slot for all 3 RAID modes.
    • MB662 Series fits 2 x 3.5" SATA I/II hard drives for maximum storage.
    • Plug & Play USB 2.0 + eSATA + FireWire800 combo with OXFORD936DS chipset.
    • FireWire 400 capability via FW800 to FW400 converter cable, supplied in the box.
    • Built-in hardware RAID controller allows four different RAID configurations:
      RAID 0 (FAST), RAID 1 (SAFE), & JBOD (Concatenation/Spanned)
    • No additional software and hardware required for RAID capabilities.
    • User friendly Screw-less design just plug in the hard drive and play.
    • 40 mm Sunon cooling fan with adjustable speed control.
    • Multi-drive exchangeability & maintenance capabilities.
    • Built with Solid Aluminum Construction for body.
    • Built in security slot for security cable kit.
    • Compatible for both Windows and Mac

    The couldn't get thier hands on a USB 3.0 interface chip? Otherwise looks nice, I'd choose eSata anyway. Wonder what HDD health monitoring software is included.
