Icy Dock MB668U3-1SB USB 3.0 Drive Enclosure Reaches Stores

Icy Dock's MB668U3-1SB drive enclosure has been released to the North American and European markets. The enclosure takes in 2.5" (9.5 mm thick) SATA hard drives or solid state drives, and makes for external hard drives with USB 3.0 connectivity for transfer rates nearly on par with internal storage controllers. The enclosure takes all its power from the USB port, while also optionally featuring a 5V DC input, just in case. The aluminum+plastic based enclosure is available in carbon black and silver variants, and measures 76.3 x 13 x 150 mm, weighing a little over 80 g (empty). It is priced at 41 EUR.

For a minute there it looked like it was a pen drive, but it's just the way I was looking at it. It looks pretty nice. I'd buy it. I can't see it ever needing the 5V input though (I see why they did that), because correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't USB 3.0 do 1500mA (7.5W) or is that just Gigabyte board that do that. That's more than enough current for a laptop drive.
