The MB668U-1SB has sort of a weird shape, not the normal box shapes we are used to seeing when it comes to enclosures. The drive as all black, with the ICY DOCK logo towards the top of the drive. Unfortunately this enclosure only comes in black; it would have been nice to see a white or silver version. Most of the enclosure is made of aluminum except for the top part, which is made of plastic. The aluminum makes for good protection as well as better cooling.
At the end of the drive there are a few ventilation holes that an activity LED will shine through. On the back of the drive you have all of your connections. They include a miniUSB as well as an eSATA port. eSATA ports on 2.5-inch hard drive enclosures are pretty munch unheard of. This makes the MB668U-1SB perfect for solid state drives.
Flipping the drive over there are 4 very small feet that lift the drive off the ground a little bit. Towards the top of the drive there is a small metal latch that will unlock and lock the top of the drive.
If you move the latch over you are able to take the top of the drive off. It easily pulls off and you can take a look at the connector, which is a regular SATA connector. Also you can see the activity LED.
