ICY DOCK MB668U-1SB 2.5-inch External Hard Drive Enclosure Review

When it comes to external hard drive enclosure’s the 2.5-inch market is not that popular. Mainly because so many people use older 3.5-inch drives with 3.5-inch enclosures. The thing about 3.5-inch enclosures is that they are large and not easy to carry with you. The MB668U-1SB 2.5-inch enclosure from ICY DOCK is not only small and light it also allows you to install a hard drive with no tools at all. Another interesting thing about this enclosure is that not only does it have a USB connection it has an eSATA connection as well.

Features
– Fits any standard 2.5″ SATA HDD or SSD.
– Universal USB 2.0 connection, featuring Plug & Play for Mac & PC.
– User friendly Screw-less design just plug in the hard drive and play.

– Built-in blue LED. Less bright, less visible, less annoying.

– Included “DC to USB A Type” power cable for high performance HDD usage.
