ICY Dock are continually improving their line-up of Hard Drive Enclosures, hoping to find the perfect solution for a wide audience. Today, we are looking at an External Bay enclosure which holds a 3.5″ SATA hard disk drive.

The MB559U3S features an ultra-slim design which offers great portability and reduced footprint. In fact, it is only 3 centimeters wide, meaning it can sit in the corner of a desk without demanding space.

The MB559U3S uses a passive cooling system and is built around an aluminium body with a ventilation grill on top. It is available in two colours, and both feature USB 3.0 and eSATA connections.
