Pros: Nice Modular design

Cons: unit failed without warning after 1 year. Avg load was 20-35% in a file server. Pretty poor life in a non-gaming application. I expected a great deal more for the price.

ICY DOCK MB662USEB-2S-1 Aluminum body w/ partial plastic 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Unit is has a nice concept and form factor. The ability for eSATA, USB and Firewire give lots of options...Liked the ability to used RAID 1. I had high hopes with ICYDOCK reputation....

Cons: Don't buy this unit...as other reviewers have said, the mechanism is easily bent. The metal is flimsy. Drive speed/access is also slow. Using other external eSATA Raid drives (SANS DIGITAL) with the same drive, throughput is faster. Which I could get a refund on this P_O_S.

Other Thoughts: SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW rebuild times. Other RAID units have much faster RAID rebuild. Unit times out on eSTATA and USB. Will RMA to see if that fixes it. From other comments on ICYDOCK systems regarding timeout issues, I am not optomistic. (reference internal hot swap drive bays). Also tried with enterprises level drives - same issues. Assuming the timeout issue is fixed, this will be relegated to painfully slow offline backup duties via eSATA connection.

System is Win7 Enterprise used as a file server...
8GB RAM, using Highpoint/RR 622 eSTATA card..
