Icy Dock reveals USB 3.0 MB981U3S-1S HDD docking station

Posted on Tuesday, August 28 2012 @ 19:17:11 CEST by


Icy Dock introduces the MB981U3S-1S, a docking station for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA SSDs/HDDs. It features USB 3.0 for data transfers of up to 5Gbps and eSATA for 3Gbps data transfers.
The MB981U3S-1S multi interface allows universal adaptability with various PCs or Macs, whether they are newest Macbook with lighting fast USB 3.0 interface, or your 2 year old desktop PC with eSATA interface or even with a 90s computer with a USB 2.0 interface, they are all covered by MB981U3S-1S. The MB981U3S-1S uses tool-less plug & play design for both 2.5" & 3.5" SATA hard disk and solid state drives - simply slide in the drive and power on the device and play. This is an excellent solution for using a hard drive without the hassle of installation and allows you quickly swap drives just seconds.

2.5" drives can be used on the go being powered by the USB bus, while 3.5" drives utilize a small form factor wall power supply that can be easily stowed away in a laptop bag or briefcase. The 2 part anti-dust cover on the top is divided into 2 pieces, so that if a 2.5" drive is inserted, only the smaller portion of the cover opens up, leaving the electronics inside safe from dust and debris. Other useful elements include a power button on the dock that double as status LEDs, a easy to press, large drive eject button, and as always, a ICY DOCK 3 year warranty.

Features:
  • Completely screw-less / tool-less design for any type of SATA drive.
  • Allows docking of 2.5"/3.5" SATA HDD & SSD connected via USB 3.0, USB 2.0 or eSATA.
  • 2 part anti-dust cover protects internals even when small 2.5" SATA drive is used.
  • Easy access On/off button allows hard drive life expendability and energy conservation.
  • Plug & Play USB 3.0 with backwards capabilities to USB 2.0 for quick connection for any computer system.
  • Exposed working HDD stands in the air vertically for fast heat dissipation.
  • USB 3.0 connectivity with up to 5 Gb/sec transfer rates.
  • eSATA connectivity with up to 3 Gb/sec transfer rates.
  • Large eject button for hassle free drive removal.
  • Low profile power adapter for 3.5" drives.
  • USB bus power for 2.5" drives.
  • Great for DIY users and IT Professionals.
  • Compatible with Macbook Air & Macbook Pro.
  • Designed for PC & Mac systems.
