ICY DOCK has been a household name for enclosures around storage solution for quite some time. Most of their products focus on the workstation user on one end of the spectrum and large government entities and corporations on the other. Today, we get to review the ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB720M2K-B which allows the user to use four M.2 NVMe drives in a single 5.25" drive bay with the focus on protection, cooling, and hot-swapping.
The box of the MB720M2K-B is pretty basic, but quite sturdy. It features a picture of the device on the front and some marketing bulletin points on the back of the cardboard package.
Two black foam spacers hold the unit in place, while a plastic bag keeps away scratches and finger prints. Out of the box, it quickly becomes apparent that the MB720M2K-B is not compromising on build quality, which is something bigger clients that require the best durability will surely appreciate.
Besides the enclosure itself, you will receive little plastic numbering clips to easily identify which tray is supposed to go where, two sets of locking keys, and special, short mounting screws to secure the whole unit in place. A simply but quite useful manual can also be found, which came in handy when filling each tray.
