BYTECC MR-225 Dual 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Simplicity itself 09/08/2015

This review is from: BYTECC MR-225 Dual 2.5" to 3.5" Bay SATA Hot-Swappable HDD/SSD Mobile Rack

Pros: Holds two ssd or laptop drives. No electronics. Easy to install and very easy to use

Cons: Needs bezel for install in 5.25 inch bay

Other Thoughts: I had a startech unit of which the electronics had died. This came as a timely replacement item.

HP DC7900 Small PC - Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0Ghz, 2GB, 80GB, Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Compact case
Looks professional
Clean inside with 4 sata ports
New Windows 7 Home 64 bit
Suitable for office applications

Cons: Case exterior has some dents and scratches
Comes with an old 80 Gb Seagate Baracuda HD
Seatools report over 48,000 hrs of power on status
This is a high number, though possible for a 5 year old pc
No eggs for the hard drive
Usually when I get a refurb like this it comes with a new HD.
2 GB of RAM is also a bit below par.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded the system for more fun
Replaced HD with 250 GB Samsung Evo SSD
Upgraded RAM to 4 GB
Added low profile DVI video card
This makes it an adequate desktop for office applications.

ICY DOCK MB882SP-1S-3B EZConvert Lite Light Weight Open Air 2.5” to 3.5” SATA Hard Drive or SSD Converter / Mounting Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Newegg web page information was complete including nice instruction video. Professional delivery and packaging as expected. Unit is made of plastic with a shape that pleases the eye. Nicely matches a black (charcoal) computer case. Fits 2.5 inch drives of different sizes.

Cons: As a housing for a removable ssd in the front of a pc case it is not so practical because of the location of the sata adapter. In my device, it was about 1 mm off when ssd was normally inserted. Consequently, there was no electrical or digital connection. Some wiggling made it connect. In my opinion, the unit is impractical for a front-loading use of swappable ssd, which is what I bought it for. Yes, the ssd must be inserted from the front side after cover has been removed. However, once it is installed, you cannot pull the ssd out from the front side. In order to get to the ssd, you need to pull the entire Icy Dock unit out of the computer case. Only then can you reach the ssd inside, which kind of defeats the purpose of front (un)loading.

Other Thoughts: In order to get this device to work in the front side of a PC case, you need to buy in addition a suitable 5.25 inch tray unit with a 3.5 inch opening allowing the user to easily slide in and pull out the ICY-DOCK adapter. The tray in turn would require a sata power / data part compatible with the sata power / data connection of the ICY DOCK unit.
