Home / Component / ICY DOCK MB982SPR-2S SATA HDD & SSD Raid Review


Rating: 8.0.

Today we are going to look at a very impressively designed drive caddy which can convert both 2.5 inch mechanical and solid state drives into RAID arrays. It is also built to withstand serious abuse and to fit inside a standard 3.5 inch drive bay. If you have several older drives gathering dust then this might just be the performance boost you need for a new system build.

The Icy Dock MB982SPR-2S certainly isn’t a very catchy name, but on paper it looks to be a very versatile unit with Raid 0, Raid 1 and BIG support.

Unlike many units we have seen from the Far East in recent months, it is built from high quality metal so it won’t be something you have to hide in shame within your new rig.

    very ‘apple’ like in appearance aint it?

    Nice idea. ive a few 2.5 inch drives in a drawer here, but they aren’t worth putting in this, one is an old 120gb 5,400 rpm thing and the other is even worse 🙂
