External enclosures provide a great avenue for many professional & enterprise users in the media field looking for an easy way to store and backup data. The ability to have slim, removable and heat dissipation are all critical features to truly protect and store your data. With that said, Icy Dock is proud to introduce the MB559U3S-1SB, 3.5" SATA III USB 3.0 slim aluminum external hard drive enclosure.

The MB559U3S-1SB uses an ultra slim fan-less design, to give the best portability in any professional environment. To achieve this, the height of the enclosure reaches just a bit higher than the standard 3.5" hard drive height under 2 inches, making it easy to place anywhere from your suitcase to your office drawer. The fan-less design choice allows a quiet operation with the least amount of intrusion possible. This is the perfect minimalistic external storage for media editors available on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsExcelent External Enclosure

Pros: Even though the documentation lists compatibility with up to 3TB hard drive, this works perfectly with 4TB drives as well. The current revision includes a tray with support for both 3.5 and 2.5 hard drives, so you can use it with a SSD hard drive if you wish.

Cons: None that I have experienced.

Other Thoughts: I use these exclusively for external hard drive backups for my clients. I usually pair it with a 4TB Western Digital Red hard drive. I used to use a Vantec external enclosure, but switched to Icy Dock after having eSATA stability problems with the current run of Vantec hardware.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

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

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

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?
