May 23, 2006

External storage devices are getting more and more popular for file storage and backup these days because of the ease of use, portability, and compatibility. Today we are taking a look at an external hard drive enclosure from Icy Dock. This single drive enclosure is from their MB452 series, model number MB452UK-B.

The MB452 series includes several different styles and interfaces. They offer a model with a USB 2.0 interface, as well as model with a combination of USB 2.0 and eSATA. The enclosures and interior drive trays come in different colors, including beige, black, and silver. The review sample MB452UK-B is the black version that supports USB 2.0 connectivity and Parallel ATA (IDE) hard drives.

Before diving into the review of the MB452UK-B provided by Icy Dock, let's take a look at some of the published data on the device taken from the Icy Dock website...

Product Description:

Understanding the difficulties to get your massive data from a laptop to a desktop or vice versa, ICY DOCK has creatively developed the MB452 series with a removable tray that's compatible with the ICY DOCK's MB122 & MB123 Series internal drive rack that allows storage drive interchangeabilities between laptop and desktop platforms. With its sleek exterior, solid construction, the MB452 series is one of the most convenient storage devices that enable multiple drive accessibility utilizing one simple external housing. No more clumsy installation procedures in creating a time efficient storage environment! Also, the storage drive security feature utilizes a power control locking mechanism that allows users to both power down and lock up the storage drive, making it both inaccessible and unobtainable to keep the drive fully secured and safe.
