5 out of 5 eggsAll metal built well, works perfectly. Using it with boot SSD.

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: Easy to install. Fits snug in 3.5 drive bay. All metal, built very well. Single SATA power connector for both bays.

Cons: Green power LED hard to tell it changing color, for drive access. Not worth losing an Egg over it

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product! Used 3 in my build

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: I used three of these to fit 4 SSDs and 2 HDDs into my build. Makes it so much easier to pull out drives and insert them when I need to copy data from one PC to another. I can just pop a drive in and copy the data off lightning fast! I also have all of my Steam games installed on a single SSD - I can just pull the drive out and play the games on my laptop on the go! These bays are great, stay cool. They are well made - the construction is top notch. Being all metal, there is no flexing issues or breakage risks. I dual boot, and as such keep the boot drives in one cage, locked so they don't accidentally get released.

Cons: The only con I ran into is that these are designed for the floppy drive size bay - and not a 3.5" HDD bay. My build is highly custom, so I ended up making a custom bracket to make these fit into a 3.5" HDD bay. It's not any fault of ICY DOCKs - it's just something to be aware of.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend these if you're looking for adding HDDs or SSDs to your build and want to be able to swap them out easily and reliably. I've used other ICY DOCK products, and have never been let down, these are really the bee's knees!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hot Swap Rack for SSD

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: Very well built. (like you could drive your car over it, and be fine), All metal construction, with very good fit and finish. This unit takes only one SATA power cable for two drives. The unit is compact, and I like that it has a key for the doors. The doors and door latching mechanism is quite solid and robust, for being relatively small.

Cons: As many have reflected, this is not an inexpensive dock, but the quality is there. It would have been nice to have been "trayless", but of course the "trayless" designs suffer having to work for the different thickness of 2.5" hard drive design. I would use this primarily for SSD, as I am not sure this unit would offer adequate cooling for a spinning platter. Last, please make sure you do not lose the tiny screws that are used to secure the drive to the tray. They are kind of a special design with extremely flat screw heads, and other "normal" screws will not work.

Other Thoughts: I did a lot of research on this kind, and size, of hot swap dock bay. There are many other less expensive units out there, but none of the units I researches was rated so highly as this one. I am very pleased with this purchase. If I were doing extensive drive swap outs though, I would be tempted to look at the trayless designs. Screwing the drives to the sleds is kind of a pain, even if I know why ICY DOCK went with sleds on this design. The sleds ensure a more fool-proof fit on the various thickness of 2.5" drives.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: Tough, all metal, hot swap, feel high quality for the price. Fit perfectly in the FLEX-FIT adapter from the same brand.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I try again and again to understand how they do to be able to sell that quality so cheap... First time I saw and read description, I was thinking that would be around 100$ and maybe more, but for 40$, you really have a great system. Built like a tank!

5 out of 5 eggsXeon Workstation

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: Very well made and modestly stylish.
Constructed of quality metal parts.
Lockable hot swap drive trays.
Only one SATA power cable needed.

Cons: Only fits in a standard floppy disk bay.
Adds about a pound to overall system mass.
Lock operates on both doors at once.
Needs two SATA cables since there is no port multiplier.

Other Thoughts: This is a fine way to put bootable hot swap media on the front panel of a computer which has an empty standard external 3.5inch floppy disk bay. It is possible to use a 5.25inch to 3.5inch FDD adapter if an empty ODD bay is available.

The unit is heavy and looks to be robust enough for workstation use. The patented Eagle Claw locking mechanism holds the drive trays firmly in place, yet when unlocked with one of the two supplied cylinder keys, they are easily ejected by simply pushing a button.

Whether booting multiple operating systems or running a two drive RAID array, this little gadget will add elegance and style to the machine while making it easier to operate in such environments where quick and reliable hot swapping is paramount.

Pros: Great product. Well constructed. Everything worked perfectly. I may buy another one soon.

Cons: Expensive but worth it. The drives are marked 1 and 2. They should have been marked 0 and 1.

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: Great device. Have 2 of these for my RAIDs with SSDs(Raid-0) with nonsensitive data and HDDs(Raid-1)

Cons: One concern is that one of the SATA connectors has no lock so it's very easy to disconnect the SATA cable by accident.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat double 2.5" SSD enclosure

This review is from: ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s SSD/HDD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane Cage Module for 3.5" Device Bay (Fits 7, 9.5mm height drive)

Pros: Fits in a 3.5" floppy disk slot flawlessly. Like everyone else that bought this thing has said, its mounted on the side with screws. So if you have an empty "traditional" empty 3.5" floppy drive slot, this thing is the ticket.

Mechanism for ejecting the drives feels very sturdy and smooth. Disks are adequately cooled. No errors or issues with hot swapping drives in Windows 2008 server. Disc transfer speed in benchmarks is unchanged as well. Verified to support SATA III.

The lock does not turn off power like other hot-swap trays I have used in the past. It is just a lock to secure the drive. I like this design way better.

Cons: Cost. Not super expensive, but costs more than most.

Other Thoughts: You get a free tray if you fill out the promotional form. It makes the higher price a little more bang for your buck.

Pros: Durable, positive engagement, can use without the key, and works with one drive if desired. I can change OS like socks now.

Cons: thinking......
