It features the new USB 3.0 interface for up to a 5 Gb/sec transfer rate but still backwards compatible to USB 2.0 transfer speeds. The MB881U3-1SA is perfect for any DIY user or IT Professional in need of a quality hard drive adapter. This adapter will work with both SATA drives and IDE drives and use them on a USB 3.0 interface. The 2.5" SATA/IDE drives can be powered with the USB cable alone. A power adapter is included for faster or bigger 2.5" hard drives or 3.5" hard drives. Using the USB 3.0 interface will maximize the IDE drives read/write speeds not found on other USB 2.0 products.
What benefits can be found in the Icy Dock MB881U3-1SA over other HDD adapters is that it is space saving, better heat dispassion, no messy wires all around the desk, looks nicer, and most of all USB 3.0 interface. The MB881U3-1SA will accept almost any size of 2.5" / 3.5" IDE and SATA hard drives. The on/off button makes it easy to conserve energy and extend the life of a drive The MB881U3-1SA features a detachable stand which can be removed from the adapter for better portability, with the newer smaller included power adapter, the MB881U3-1SA can be easily slid into a laptop bag. This lightweight dock can lay on any surface for hard drive stability and is small enough to grasp with just a hand. The dock and the stand are light enough to move and reposition in different areas.

I bought one of these reciently and have been very happy with he way it works. The build quality is pretty good (the green stand is actually a big piece of metal and not plastic as expected.)
I have a bunch of sata and IDE drives and now I can easily access what is on them. The usb3 seems to be working well with very ood transfer speeds.
The plug provided was also a uk one.
Other than the fact that it works well, there are two bonuses - the box it came in is robust enough to store it in after you've used it, but the clincher is the manner in which 3.5" SATA HDDs are mounted and supported. The HDD is offered up to the lip on the left side of the platform and then pushed home into the socket. The green metal mount then supports the right side. This is a really good bit of design!
I was also able to get things from a few 2.5" SATA SSDs to set them up for another machine, so all in all this unit has been a good purchase. It is well constructed and unlike some of the other USB cable devices which are typically limited to 2.5" SATA styled drives, this dock has performed perfectly each and every time.
It is also quite small so doesn't take up a large area unless you are connecting the 3.5" IDE drive to it which requires the dock to lie flat with the drive off to one side. Having a separate power switch also means it is only enabled when you need it to be.
I've used it for a week or so now, primarily to allow the rebuild of a laptop, and it has not given the slightest problem, and unlike some of the others, its SOLID!
Just buy this, you won't be disappointed.
However having now inspected the product it would seem as though this device is designed primarily for sata hard drives as only they can be positioned in the upright standing position. IDE hard drives however connect via the side of the device and then the green stand must be detached so that it can lie flat!
I will concede that this is shown via the product images but I never paid it enough mind and assumed (incorrectly) that this was an optional configuration. By no means will I be returning this product as I'm gradually migrating away from IDE entirely!
This may go without saying but as the HD is so exposed an element of safety may need to be considered for both the HD and perhaps around children!

great piece of kit. just what I was looking for. recommend if you need a H/Drive docking stationPublished 9 months ago by Jim
Claimed it worked on Sata and IDE and failed miserably on the latter and only worked a couple of times on the former. Overpriced tat.
The best thing ever, quality, works straight from box, very pleased 10/10Published 20 months ago by R J Vanderstay
None of my pcs recognise the device, which apparently means that it is faulty. Website support is useless, and uk live chat is an unregistered domain.Published on 4 May 2014 by Amazon Customer
...the mechanism to keep it vertical is a little tricky when drives are added to the side. I actually lay it flat without the stand and it's great like that.Published on 6 Feb. 2014 by Amazon Customer
