Icy Dock MB981U3S-1S overview

  • 1Description

The black EZ-Dock MB981U3S-1S 2.5"/3.5" USB 3.0 and eSATA HDD Docking Station from Icy Dock features a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and eSATA interface with UASP support. The HDD docking station enhances USB 3.0 performance by adding UASP support, and it allows you to quickly swap a standard 2.5" and 3.5" SATA HDD/SSD. The docking station allows universal adaptability with various PCs or Macs, whether they are Macbooks with the lightning fast USB 3.0 interface, a desktop PC with eSATA interface, or a computer with a USB 2.0 interface. It is a suitable tool for gamers, DIY users, designers, IT professionals, and even general users.

This HDD docking station features UASP support, which delivers higher data transfer speeds to supporting devices. It is backwards compatible with the USB 2.0 interface and allows the device to be used with any system that has USB 2.0 interface. This docking station uses tool-less plug and play design for both 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard disk and solid state drives.

The 2.5" drive 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 two-part anti-dust cover on the top is divided into two 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. In addition, it also includes a power button on the dock that doubles as status LEDs.
