ICY DOCK 2.5" to 3.5" Bay SATA HDD & SSD Converter / Mounting Kit /Bracket - EZConvert MB882SP-1S-1B
ICY DOCK 2.5" to 3.5" Bay SATA HDD & SSD Converter / Mounting Kit /Bracket - EZConvert MB882SP-1S-1B

Pros: excellent solution to putting a 2.5 drive into a 3.5 slot. I used it for a new Intel X25M SSD and it worked good altho I scrambled with 3 r & r's to get the mac pro to see it as I finally physically pressed the drive into place in the dock.It was not engaging properly at first and I had to slightly close the cover and press the drive into the pins..no big deal tho

Cons: the combo with the intel ssd works so well I had to buy another pair (ICY and SSD Drive) :)

BAD news

ICY DOCK EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S Full Metal Dual 2.5" to 3.5" SATA 3Gbps SSD & HDD RAID Converter / Adapter/ Mounting Kit / Bracket (RAID 0, 1, BIG & JBOD PM)
ICY DOCK EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S Full Metal Dual 2.5" to 3.5" SATA 3Gbps SSD & HDD RAID Converter / Adapter/ Mounting Kit / Bracket (RAID 0, 1, BIG & JBOD PM)

Pros: none

Cons: this is the second i receive as my first did not work . I thought possibly it was the unit but before installing the drives for insert to my Mac Pro 2010 in raid0 I read icydock website where they now notify this unit does NOT work in raid0 with ssd. Too bad..was a good idea..do not buy for raid0 application

Overall Review: Also as I previously notified..screws do not work for MacPro bracket

Works like a charm

HighPoint RocketStor 5212 2 3.5" Drive Bays Thunderbolt Dual-Bay Thunderbolt Storage Dock (Mac Pro Support and Windows PC Support)
HighPoint RocketStor 5212 2 3.5" Drive Bays Thunderbolt Dual-Bay Thunderbolt Storage Dock (Mac Pro Support and Windows PC Support)

Pros: Received..setup with 2 Samsung 1t 840 EVO SSD in raid0 and I'm very impressed. Of course very quiet ,cool and it just sits there and goes it's thing. Attached to a new 5K iMac which has 1tb ssd on board so this handles iTunes and LR images..access almost instant..bangs out 692 /704 on black magic

Cons: Sorta expensive for what it is and no tb2..no on/off switch which is no biggie for me

Overall Review: And another plus is it is bootable to

No worky icy dock

ICY DOCK MB982IP-1S Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SAS SATA 6Gb SSD & Hard Drive Converter for Mac & PC
ICY DOCK MB982IP-1S Full Metal 2.5" to 3.5" SAS SATA 6Gb SSD & Hard Drive Converter for Mac & PC

Pros: Might be able to offer a positive comment if it worked but..

Cons: received from courier and scurried to install it and try..but..After insertinb two Intel 160G ssd first off the MAC PRO early 2009 bracket screws will not work,,,screws provided do not work (well) then with loose screws the enclosure would not seat into the drive bay properly..would not press into place..finally gave up and swapped a superdrive slot as simpler to connect just the cable...devise would not work in raid0...or any config except it would only show one drive..even set up hardware raid with onboard out of my MP with a usb cable and when I put back into the MP would not work..gonna try for a RMA and maybe try another replacement but I'm no longer enthused..

Overall Review: And to think I was initially thinking of ordering 4..

Great heater...best trait is quiet

Soleus Air HGW-308BL Wall Mounted Micathermic Heater
Soleus Air HGW-308BL Wall Mounted Micathermic Heater

Pros: Arrived well packaged and undamaged...that's a pro for starters Purchased to take the winter chill off daughters bedroom and needed something without a fan for total silent operation and this fits the bill although it does crackle slightly as the interior waffle (foil) reacts to heating but sits quitely in the background doing it's thing..good thermostat control

Cons: none really..good unit..good price..burn in out of house before use..as others stated
