IcyDock SSD Xpander (SSD Hybrid) Review

Rating: 7.0.

IcyDock have been releasing many cool adapters and gadgets recently, and today we are looking at the SSD Xpander, a device that allows the user to combine a Solid State Drive with a mechanical drive.

Icydock say that this is the ‘perfect upgrade solution’ for those users who don’t want to purchase a high capacity SSD. Using new hybrid algorithms the product can combine an SSD drive with a mechanical drive to create a ‘hybrid’ partition with a ‘storage’ partition.

The device is said to double the sequential transfer rates of the HDD exclusively in the hybrid partition. We will look into performance characteristics later in the review.
