Good, but loud and not secure. 01/26/2011
This review is from: ICY DOCK MB876SK-B Aluminum 3.5" SATA I, II & III Hard Drive Mobile Rack Enclosure
Drive trays are interchangeable with the Icy Dock external enclosure I already own. Well-made, except for the lock. Comes with screws.
The fan is bloody loud, and spins at a constant speed regardless of whether or not a drive is currently in the bay. When a drive is installed, it gets even louder.
Not a big deal for me, but the security lock is a joke. I inserted a drive and turned the lock, and was still able to remove the drive using only slightly more pressure than is normally required. At least nothing broke when I did that.
Because of the fan noise, I'm keeping the drive bay unplugged, which kind of defeats the purpose of a hot-swap bay.
