    Icy Box released three new drive enclosures, two of which, the IB-272StU-OT and IB-250StU3-BH, can make portable drives enclosing 2.5-inch SATA HDDs or SSDs. The third one, the IB-351StU3-B, is a 3.5-inch drive enclosure that makes for a desktop external drive enclosure. The IB-250StU3-BH and IB-351StU3-B take advantage of the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface, with interface bandwidths as high as 5 Gb/s between the enclosure and the host. Between the enclosure and the drive, however, they use SATA 3 Gb/s interface.

    The IB-272StU-OT is very slim, and can only hold 9.5 mm thick drives (most 2.5-inch notebook HDDs and 2.5-inch SSDs are that thick). It uses the older USB 2.0 interface, and is Plug & Play and Hit Swap compatible. It features a one-touch backup function. This drive is priced at €18.50. The IB-250StU3-BH supports USB 3.0, and can hold 9.5 mm as well as 12.5 mm thick drives, it costs €19.90. The IB-351StU3-B holds 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch HDDs/SSDs, its body makes lavish use of aluminum. It features tool-free drive installation. This one goes for €27.90.
