4 out of 5 eggsNice

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB559U3S-1S Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Pearl White SATA I/II/III USB3.0 & eSATA Professional Ultra Slim External Hard Drive Enclosure

Pros: Very high quality and well made. I'm actually surprised this does not cost a lot more. eSATA & USB cables supplied are very heavy and high quality.
USB 2.0 compliant in addition to USB3.0. eSATA I believe is SATA II compliant. Works without any required drivers(USB2.0 on XP, have not tried anything else yet)

Cons: Cooling ability is questionable. They have vents in the top if you set it vertically, but opportunity for cold air to get in from underneath is uncertain... I thnk some minor airflow might be possible but it also might be worthwhile to drill a couple holes near the bottom of the housing when mounted vertically to assist with cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB559U3S-1S Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Pearl White SATA I/II/III USB3.0 & eSATA Professional Ultra Slim External Hard Drive Enclosure

Pros: This is a great case that works with 4TB GPT-formated HDDs without any problem. USB3 and eSATA work both work well as expected (of course only one at a time). The case also has an on-off switch which is great. It feels well-made and durable and is also very compact compared to most 3.5" cases.

Cons: A screwdriver is needed for assembly. Furthermore it is not clear to me what is gained by the removable tray, I think tray-carrier systems are useless ever since the SATA interface was introduced. There will be very few customers that will purchase extra trays and use this case for hot swapping.

Other Thoughts: The case is expensive, but unfortunately most of the cheaper ones have bad controllers that don't work with large drives. The internal electronics are where this case really shines. I would buy it again.

4 out of 5 eggsA good product

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB559U3S-1S Aluminum / Plastic 3.5" Pearl White SATA I/II/III USB3.0 & eSATA Professional Ultra Slim External Hard Drive Enclosure

Pros: Works as expected. The levers to insert and remove the trays that hold the actual hard drives work smoothly and well.

Cons: One stopped working after 5+ years, but I'm buying another one.

Other Thoughts: I back up my machines using hard drives (and software like rsnapshot), and this ICY DOCK allows me to very easily put in a hard drive, run my backups, and remove the drive. When the drive isn't doing backups, I usually have a drive in their for auxiliary storage or online backups. The two ICY DOCKs I bought have worked well for me for 5+ years, but I'm now replacing one. Interestingly, my records show it had a four-star rating back then, but now it has none; do ratings expire?
