Introducing the MB153SP-B, a 3-in-2 SATA internal RAID backplane for 3.5" SATA hard drives. This is a lite version of the MB45X series by removing the monitoring features and reducing the overall cost, while keeping the same 3 year warranty and the core tray system for hot swapping and maintenance are kept for the best reliability in the market.

Slimmed Down Design

The MB153SP-B has been redesigned to be a lighter module, while maintaining the same level of quality, build, and service you'd expect from an Icy Dock product. While the design has gone through some changes, the space saving design is still established. The backplane module allows up to 3 x 3.5" SATA III hard drives, while only consuming two 5.25" bays. The module has also been redesigned for the type of power connector accepted. 15 pin SATA power is used to provide better accessibility for various host systems.

5 out of 5 eggsexceeded expectations

Pros: Does exactly what I need it to do at a reasonable price.
3 disks in two bays; only two power and SATA connections needed. All three disks live.

Cons: Pan head screws provided that hold drive into cage interfere with fit, but no big deal. Flat head screws more commonly available anyway.

Other Thoughts: Good value

4 out of 5 eggsTotally glad to have this

Pros: Works great. No impact on performance compared to just connecting the disks to the controller. Makes swapping out disks much easier. Everything slides into place well. Compatible with icy's 2.5" to 3.5" converter trays for those who want to use this for SSDs or laptop drives in here. Simply done well overall.

An icy dock swappable chassis like this is a worthwhile addition to any computer build with more than a single disk. Using only 2x 5.25" bays, this one's great for builds in smaller cases, cases with less 5.25" bays (including the older Supermicro tower I've got mine in), and cases where you want to use one for an optical drive.

Cons: The stock fan can be replaced, but most people won't, and it's pretty loud. It moves a lot of air which is a positive, but the noise level really is noticeable and worth taking off an egg.

The documentation is also severely lacking. While it works just fine in the way anyone with a little bit of hardware knowledge would expect it to, there're a bunch of undocumented jumpers and pins on the PCB. I'm kind of curious what they're for, but the documentation basically amounts to "plug it in, screw it in, put disks in trays, insert trays" and doesn't include details of the connectors, jumpers, and other pinouts.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is great for cooling your sata drives as well as storage/space management in a tower. Also allows for easy hot swap in a RAID situation.

Cons: Only drawback is that it will not line up a SSD drive to the internal sata connectors if try to mount one to the tray that slides in
