We are back with another hard drive enclosure from ICY DOCK! This enclosure is a dual bay enclosure so you will not only be able to install 2 hard drives, but also have those hard drives in a RAID configuration. The external enclosure supports 3 different connections, USB 2.0, eSATA and Firewire so no matter what system you are using this enclosure will be compatible. Installation in this enclosure takes less than a minute thanks to to tool-less design. The enclosure I am talking about is the MB662USEB-2S-1 from ICY DOCK. Read on as we take a look!
Redundant storage is something many people need and definitely appreciate, especially if you’ve had a hard drive die on you. That is never fun and neither is losing all of your data that was on your hard drive. Akitio has a cool little enclosure that will give you redundant storage with RAID support, nice protection with its aluminum design and quite a few different connection options. Did I mention it has a cool LCD display on the front that will give you information about your drives? Read on as we check it out!
Akitio is a name you may not be familiar with, but they specialize in mainly storage products. These include professional as well as consumer-grade products. Today we are taking a look at a very cool enclosure for 2.5-inch hard drives. The Taurus Mini Super-S LCM will hold two 2.5-inch hard drives, has USB 2.0, eSATA and Firewire connections, supports RAID and also has a pretty cool LCD on the front.

Today we are doing our 50th unboxing! Thanks everyone for following us since we have started doing these videos! Today we are taking a look a the CRU-DataPort ToughTech Duo, which is a portable hard drive enclosure that is meant for two 2.5-inch hard drives. It offers firewire, USB and eSATA connectivity and features easy to setup RAID 0 and RAID 1 configurations via the LCD on the front of the unit. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
The final decision is interface. There are eSATA, eSATA/USB, USB/Firewire, and Firewire only. Of course, the latter is more for Mac users, Firewire (IEEE 1394) has never really caught on with PC users, except those that happen to own camcorders or other devices that interface with Firewire. My desktop rigs all have eSATA, but this drive will most likely be shared with my laptop, which only has USB. Rather than use multiple cables, I prefer the simplicity of plugging one cable in the drive and leaving it. Today I will be looking at the Icy Dock MB664UEB-1S USB/Firewire 3.5″ External Enclosure. Though this enclosure is USB capable, the big deal is that it has Firewire 800 (IEEE 1394b), which is theoretically twice as fast as USB 2.0, and probably ends up being even faster than that.
