Designed for Windows & Mac computer enthusiasts and gamers who need large amounts of storage, the Black Vortex 4-Bay USB 3.0 JBOD Enclosure from Icy Dock supports up to four 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s drive bays and connects to your host system using either its USB 3.0 port at speeds up to 5 Gb/s, or its eSATA port at speeds up to 3 Gb/s. Using the 2.5" to 3.5" HDD/SSD EZ-Convert converters, this JBOD enclosure is also able to support 2.5" hard drives and SSDs.

A built-in 120mm fan helps keep the enclosure cool and is also illuminated with a blue LED, while integrated fan and LED brightness controls allow users to configure the fan speed and LED brightness to their liking. Available fan speed and LED brightness controls include high, low, and off, and the fan can also be replaced with an aftermarket 120mm fan so long as it has a 3-pin connector. A removable dust filter helps keep things clean and may be removed for cleaning. When it comes time to replace or swap out a drive, the included EZ-Grip handles allow quick removal of drives from the Black Vortex, after which they may be inserted into a compatible docking station, without needing to remove the EZ-Grip handles.

The Black Vortex 4-Bay USB 3.0 JBOD Enclosure includes six EZ-Grip HDD handles, screws, a power cord & adapter, an eSATA cable, and a USB 3.0 cable. It is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.
