The new version is lighter weight for simplicity and cost efficiency. It is very convenient for gamers and power users who expect SSD speed on their home/ office computers. Some other new elements to the converter are viewing slots placed over the SATA connection, allowing the user to verify their HDD or SSD has made a secure connection. This also functions as an extra set of airflow vents for extra cooling with your SSD or HDD. Overall, a lightweight and simplistic design that is perfect for power users, gamers, and average computer users for use in their desktops, media centers, and home servers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Icy Dock 2.5-3.5 inch converter 6 Jan 2012
This product was quite expensive when I ended up paying £12 for this, plus £5 postage. However for the price, it delivers completely!

As the manufacturer and other reviewers state, the dimensions of the dock are exactly those of your average 3.5 inch hard drive. My case has a strange caddy system which infuriates me no end but at least holds the drives in place, and this one offered no extra challenge. If your case can hold 3.5 inch drives, it can hold this.

You connect the 2.5 SSD or hard drive to a little converter INSIDE the dock, and there are ports attached to the OUTSIDE of the dock. I prefer this to having a direct connection between SATA/power cables and the drive as I'm worried about damaging my SSD. Not sure how realistic the risk is, I think I'm just paranoid!

Pads are provided to help fit the 2.5 SSD/HDD snugly inside the case. No problems arose from that bit, though the locking mechanism put me off a little - before I realised that the backing of the enclosure held the tab which in turn held the drive in place. I think this could've been done better (quick lock/quick remove metal pins to hold it in place perhaps), but admittedly the holes aren't always in the same places on the drive, whereas this solution works for most drives.

There are cooling holes, so hot air will be able to vent, and it doesn't look like this case, being made of hardened plastic, will melt in action any time soon.

Overall, it's flexible and I imagine will work for most 2.5 inch SSDs and HDDs (I use the Crucial CT064M4SSD2 64GB M4 SSD with success) and on inspection it should fit virtually any 3.5 drive bay, and is hot-swappable with other cases. Four stars for this one, I think £12 was a little too much, but otherwise a fantastic product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy 26 Jun 2011
I have an Antec P182 case and have struggled to find a 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch converter that will fit into it because it has non-standard mounts. The MB882SP-1S-2B fits the P182 perfectly, because it has exactly the same dimensions as a hard drive and has screw holes in the standard locations. I had bought a cheaper Icy Dock converter (the MB990SP-B Dual) but this was a huge disappointment as it would not fit into my case. The spring loading was not sufficient for a screwless fit, it has no screws underneath the bracket so would not fit into the upper drive cage and the screwholes were in the wrong place for the lower drive cage. There seems to be much confusion surrounding these converters as they all claim to fit most cases but don't list those that they don't.

The SSD that I was installing was a doddle to install - it slots neatly inside the converter, with the power and SATA cables fitting directly onto the converter, not the SSD itself.

Only gripe is that the screws supplied with it were too short to fit through the case's rubber grommets, so I had to improvise with some slightly longer ones. It's a bit more expensive than most, but you can almost guarantee that it will fit your case. Iwould have been even more impressed if it was as cheap when I bought it as it is now!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works but could be better made 21 May 2013
I'm using this to put a Samsung 840 Pro SSD into a 2009 Mac Pro, and it works just fine - after quite a lot of trouble.

As with other reviewers here, the first time I assembled it the drive wasn't seen at all by the Mac. (The drive itself worked fine when plugged directly into a PC).

In the end, I had to unscrew the PCB from the case and plug it firmly into the back of the SSD. After checking that this worked, I reassembled the SSD + PCB carefully back into the case, and finally everything was go. I've not experienced any problems since.

Also, the drive is only held in place by some plastic springy bits moulded into the lid. If the drive was heavy and/or vibrating (fortunately SSDs are neither) I suspect this would be inadequate. There are no screw holes for mounting the drive properly.

So: it does the job, but for the money it's a bit mechanically shoddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, simple box 25 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Open the box, slot the drive in and close the lid. No screws, no messing around - if only everything was this easy...

I've used it to install a Crucial M4 into my 2008 Mac Pro and have no complaints. Easy five stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't plug into the SATA port without "adjusting" 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this product, as it was advertised it was compatible with Mac Pros. The casing was a little difficult to open at first, but once opened, the 2.5" SSD fit in perfectly. It also fit into the Mac Pro hard drive bay slot nicely. However, when I tried to plug the item into the SATA port inside the Mac Pro, it wouldn't fit. Trying to get the item to fit cause the SATA connector inside the computer to bend slightly, which meant I had to spend a lot of time removing various parts inside the computer to get sufficient access to unbend it. I had to cut away some of the plastic around the outside of the SATA connector to get it to fit in correctly and even then I had to pull down slightly on the end of the casing to get it to plug into the port nicely. Eventually I got everything up and running, but it was a lot of hassle for something supposedly compatible.
