Icy Dock MB455SPF 5-Bay Internal SATA Drive Enclosure
October 09, 2006

Packaging:

The cardboard box that the Icy Dock MB455SPF 5-Bay Internal SATA Drive Enclosure arrived in is just that, a cardboard box. The images on the box are simple, because if you are purchasing the product you most likely know what you are getting; much needed hard drive space or easily hot-swappable drives. The side of the box lists a few of the key features and lists the model that is inside of the box.

Inside of the package you see the enclosure securely resting in the middle of two Styrofoam-like molds. There are barely any accessories included with the product, simply because there aren't many needed. Here are a bunch of screws and hard drive led indicator wires (which are only needed for SATA I drives).

The Basics:

The instructions are pretty simple, showing the front of the enclosure and it's LED layout, as well as providing nice detail on the back panel's connections and pins. On the top of the product there is yet another diagram of the back panel.

The front of the enclosure is fairly simple. Hard drives are mounted vertically so it can squeeze five drives into a three bay area of your case. The small led lights on the bottom show the status of each drive, green=powered on, orange=activity, red=failure. The two lights on the top are for fan fail/overheat indication and a reset button. The rear isn't much of a surprise since we already saw two diagrams with the layout described in good detail. The fan looks huge, but should supply a good amount of airflow to get the heat away from the drives. There are three SATA power connections, two standard molex connections, and five SATA headers. There is a tiny switch in the middle of the right side to set the temperature limit between the choices of 45C, 55C, and 65C.
