Product Description

Product Description

External enclosures provide a great avenue for many professional & enterprise users in the media field looking for an easy way to store and backup data. The ability to have slim, removable and heat dissipation are all critical features to truly protect and store your data. With that said, Icy Dock is proud to introduce the MB559U3S-1S, 3.5” SATA III USB 3.0 slim aluminum external hard drive enclosure.The MB559U3S-1S uses an ultra slim fan-less design, to give the best portability in any professional environment. To achieve this, the height of the enclosure reaches just a bit higher than the standard 3.5” hard drive height under 2 inches, making it easy to place anywhere from your suitcase to your office drawer. The fan-less design choice allows a quiet operation with the least amount of intrusion possible. This is the perfect minimalistic external storage for media editors available on the market.In addition to the ultra slim design, the enclosure must be lightweight and able to provide efficient heat dissipation. By using an aluminum body, your hard drive is properly protected and also reduces the weight of the external enclosure because the MB559U3S-1S weighs in at just over 1 pound. Unlike other name brand external hard drive products that use plastic bodies, the aluminum material allows your hard drive to receive the best heat dissipation to maintain optimal temperature during operation. What this results in is an external enclosure that is the lightest, slimmest, and fully protects your hard drive.Last but not least, drive removability adds another dimension by offering great freedom of choice in expanding your storage solution and multi-drive exchangeability for easy maintenance. The MB559U3S-1S presents a simple and easy tray system to swap and transport your hard drive from one location to another Icy Dock series, such as the MB453, MB454, MB455 and MB561 series. Expanding and transporting your drive is simple with the availability of the MB883BK leather case and MB559TRAY(-B) for your hard drive. The MB559U3S-1S product is highly recommended to any professional users who require digital information management such as: Audio editors, DJ’s, IT professionals, law enforcement agencies, military, government agencies, and more.

I just started using it yesterday, but compared to the external HDD enclosure I had before (MP-SK3-S-CMB-V3 from Amazon Germany) it works like a treat.

Which means, that smart values are readable on both ports (USB, eSATA). It is not a problems to switch the drive off or unplug the USB cable without 'savely removing the hardware' under Windows7, which was a massive problem with the other drive.

On the mechanical side I have to say the HDD slide mechanism works perfectly. You do not have to connect any cables to the HDD. Just screw it to the slide and insert.

Beside the fact that it works fine, I am quite happy with the looks. It is simple but not cheap.

I liked it so much I just bought a second one in black.

Straight out the box this does what it says on the tin. The design complimented the iMac with its silver finish, and every component was perfectly packaged and neatly labeled like a well maintained drawer. The enclosure itself is was of the neatest I have seen and certainly the thinnest, sporting two sets of retractable feet for support and a safety catch two eject and replace the hard drive (not included), with ease.

Assembly was simple and came with all the parts required. There are a few YouTube videos that feature piece by piece instruction if you require further insight into how to build it.

Icebox is a reputed name in the hard drive enclosure industry. When purchasing an enclosure make note that the power supply may not be suitable to power your hard drive. I had previously purchased a DIFFERENT MAKE from PCWorld who had sold me the right size of enclosure for my 3.5" Sata Western digital 7,200 RPM hard drive, however, it very quickly became apparent that there were intermittent power issues. Thus I resorted to researching deeper into hard drive enclosures.

Initially £50 might seem a steep order for something that is merely housing a hard drive, but when you make that extra investment you know you are ensuring quality, longevity, customer support, and ease of maintenance. The addition of a USB 3 cable means I was able to transfer nearly 1TB of data in an hour which is only shadowed by Thunderbolt (not a necessary means for the general consumer anyway).

Think carefully before you buy. This is worth every penny.

Again, this simply rocks. Nice metal construction, stays cool - blazing fast USB3 - what's not to like. Also like their internal drive caddies!

Very easy to use. Simple to install the hard drive into this enclosure and connects fine to my iMac OSX 10.8.3

Transfer speeds over USB2 is good. Can't wait to try USB 3.
