OVERVIEW

ICYRaid MB662U3-2S Dual Bay SuperSpeed USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure

Hard drive failure is the reality to prepare for. In the long run, you will have to face the certainty that all hard drives fail no matter how cautious you have been. Imagine what would happen if the drive fails and you lost all of your family photos, critical office data, and your work portfolio? To prevent the data loss from a hard drive failure, our response is the ICYRaid enclosure to make the user experience of creating a physical backup (RAID array) a very pleasant one. The ICYRaid series MB662U3-2S packs the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, tray-less drive installation design, easy to setup process, and an advanced cooling system - all these great features in a small, yet elegant enclosure that can be taken where you go as a professional media storage device.



User-Friendly Design

The ICYRaid is a self contained hardware dual bay RAID enclosure that operates independent of your computer. Along with an easy to use control panel, setting up the device is a simple thing to do. By using the rear control panel, the MB662U3-2S can be used to create various RAID arrays such as: RAID 1 (SAFE), RAID 0 (FAST), BIG, and JBOD for different use cases.

Automatic back up for maximum data security

Installing and maintaining the MB662U3-2S requires no extra tools, as everything you will need is included. The ICYRaid uses our convenient tray-less design to simply make any install a seamless transition to getting your configuration started. Once you have your hard drives ready, simply open each door, slide in your hard drives, and select the RAID setting you like. After that, turning on the device will automatically start the RAID process on its own. If a failure of a drive occurs, easy to read front LED indicators will indicate when a drive is ejected, accessed, or has failed. The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S adds two convenient features, LED and power control. The front LED indicators can be disabled when needed. This is perfect for people who set the enclosure in their bedroom and prefer turn the LED off at night. The second feature is the power saving mode that follows your systems behavior. When your system is powered off or put to sleep, the ICYRaid will activate its sleep mode to conserve power. Both these functions can be changed via dip switches on the rear panel.

SuperSpeed Performance

Taking advantage of the new ultra quick USB 3.0 interface, users will be able to transfer at high speeds at a maximum of 5Gbps. The USB 3.0 interface is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0, so using the MB662U3-2S on your legacy PC or Mac is not a problem. If the system supports USB 3.0, you will be able to take advantage of the superior performance capabilities – which is crucial for professionals who want tools that perform their jobs quickly and efficiently.

Supreme Build Quality for Maximum Reliability

It is known that the most common causes of disk failure are poor heat management and mechanical agitation. Taking this into consideration, the build of the MB662U3-2S uses solid aluminum body construction, adding heat dissipation, strength, and protection of your hard drives. The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S in addition reduces external vibrations from reaching the sensitive hard disks by enclosing the drive within a vibration reducing cage, minimizing the possibility of disk damage.

EZConvert

Effective Cooling

Protecting your data also requires that it is constantly maintained to perform at its best. Because hard drives are susceptible to heat failure, it is important to have an active cooling solution. Using the ultra-quiet Sunon MagLev 40mm fan with variable fan speed control ensures optimal heat dissipation or quiet operation for a range of applications such as a recording studio or production room.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

Pros: Very easy to set up. It works as I wanted it to with just a few minor issues. See cons. Color of case is actually silver, darker than the pictures on site. I dont care really, it could have been pink as long as it works for my needs... maybe I would care if it was pink. Keeps all my pirated stuff neatly in one place. Just Kidding. Only had it set up for a week, working great. Keep you posted if that changes.

Cons: Only issues I have is when powering down the system. Hard drives shut off fine but case fan keeps running until you turn off the actual unit. I was expecting if you shut down pc then entire enclosure would shut down as well.
The latches in front worry me when removing hdd, feels like they make go if too much pressure is used when trying to remove hdd from its bays. Only time will tell

Other Thoughts: Planning to get another soon with a few hdds for raid set up after the holidays. My kids are breaking my pockets with all the tech stuff they want.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed quickly

Pros: Worked great for 6 months

Cons: Died in less than a year, and my warranty was only good on my hard drives, and didn't cover this product. Barely got my data off the drives by attaching it to someone else's computer.

5 out of 5 eggsReputable customer support

Pros: This product has all the feature that I was looking for my home media storage; RAID, USB 3.0 and the option of sleep mode. It takes two of my 4TB drives without any problem. I like the idea of the fan control so that I can adjust it anytime if the drives get too hot. Pretty simple to install the drives and computer detects the drives right away. No hassle on the installation at all. Simple plug and play.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: At first, I was getting USB 2.0 speed and I was frustrated that my product was defected. So I promptly called the customer service from icydock and they were very helpful and patiently troubleshoot with me step by step. Finally, we figured out that it was my motherboard's USB 3.0 driver issue. I had to update my USB 3.0 driver and now I can finally see the USB 3 speed that I was expecting. Great experience with the customer support!

5 out of 5 eggsReliable product

Pros: This enclosure has a sturdy structure and speedy USB 3.0 transfer rate. The cooling fan keeps my drives cool at all time and it has adjustable fan settings too. I can barely hear the fan's noise when it is on my desk and the best thing is that the LED in the front can be turned off so it would not be distracting. I also like the simple tool-less installation, all you need to do is pop the drives in and the computer detects them right away. This is the best USB 3.0 enclosure I've ever had!

Cons: None so far, I will update if I find any problem.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend!

1 out of 5 eggsOnly shows 4G available

Pros: None. It does not work.

Cons: When I plug the drive in, it shows only 4G available. I have had the drive a month, but only got a chance to install it today. No RMA option on the Newegg website since I am 5 days past the 30. and no other way to return given. I will never buy from NewEgg again!

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Cheap, fan dial is barely operable, reset button was off-center and difficult to access. Fan wasn't working properly (due to the dial) causing brand new drives to fail. Returned all for refund.

Pros: Slim, fast, quiet

Other Thoughts: Bought it a month ago. Stopped working after a month of use. I do have to say that their customer service is excellent. Will get a refund through NewEgg and get another one because it is faster.

4 out of 5 eggsgood speed

Pros: -slim, save space
-good look
-metal exterior, silver?
-fan, decent power
-did I mention speed?
-easy to setup

Cons: -came with 1 semi loose/broken clipper
-fan a bit loud? could be two HDD running thats why

Other Thoughts: start with the CON, broken or loose clipper, latch releases itself very easily with slight pressure or shock, something i can live with.. I guess.

fits two HDD and very slim, metal exterior to release heat, silver/white colored won't absorb light, keep it even cooler than regular black enclosure, just tiny bit cooler..

could definitely feel the fan running, and heat coming out of it, fan is doing its job for something so tiny.

two HDD measured in sequential 2MB write at QD1 (normal file copy transfer for large, movie/rar/iso/music files) at 320 MB/s with two barracuda 3TB drives, QD4 in CDM shows at 340 MB/s, it'll go even faster with velociraptor or SSDs inside but storage otherwise is wasted.

5 out of 5 eggsNice enclosure

Pros: Fast, keeps drives cool, just works like it's supposed to.

Cons: Having to wait for it to be released....

Other Thoughts: Got this enclosure as I wanted a RAID 1 system after a previous external HD died on me causing me to spend a ton of $$$$ to get the data recovered. A lot of the other RAID enclosures seem to have so-so reviews so I decided to wait for this one to be released and I'm glad I did.

With two 7,200 RPM drives (3TB Hitachi's) the enclosure is fast through it's USB 3.0 connection. If you're worried that the enclosure is going to be slow.... don't (Unless you are going to use a 2.0 connection LOL). I'm sure it would be ever faster in RAID 0 but after my last failure my nerves just wouldn't let me do it!

Installation was easy, just plug it on and turn it on, drive should be recognized as whatever RAID mode you set it to. Formatting took several hours but that's par for the course with 3TB drives.

The outside gets slightly warm, but that's because the solid aluminum acts as a heatsink along with the fan. I don't think you'll have to worry about drive failure caused by heat in this thing.

So would I buy this again? Absolutely. It does what it says it does and does it well. For the price, you can't go wrong.
