External docking stations are popular because of its flexibility and compatibility. However, because it is for external use, the interface limits the transfer speed of your hard drive while only allowing one to be use at a time. In a standard computer case, there are several 5.25" bays usually reserved for your DVD ROM drive, however, will not naturally fit with your 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives without some assistance. We also want to create a much faster and smoother transition from external to internal setups. Using the MB971SP-B DuoSwap, you will save precious desktop space by integrating both 3.5" & 2.5" slots into a single 5.25" bay. This gives you the ability to expand and easily go from your external docking station to your computer in just seconds.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete flexibility This will be the second Icy Dock I have fitted to my PC & I am really impressed with the level of flexibility my original one gives me. I use 6 operating systems; 5 on SSD's & 1 on a 3.5" HDD. The Icy Dock allows me to change systems as I please & it's easy to use too. The second dock will be for backup & media drives. Fitting is easy: you need 2 SATA cables (SATA 2 or 3) & 1 power cable. It's about a 30 minute job maximum. In operation, the eject mechanisms are stiff, & take a while to ease. After around 40 operations, they are fine. One criticism is that a standard 3.5" HDD tends to run very hot, as there isn't any cooling with the dock. Try to install it as near as possible to the best airflow, i.e. close to your inlet fan. SSD's don't have this problem, but it's best to keep them as cool as possible. The only other criticism is that the power switches can be operated inadvertently when installing a drive. It becomes quite interesting when your screen suddenly freezes because you just knocked the operating system off!! A nice feature is the LED's for each drive. Your case LED's are fine, but these are a nice bonus. It is worth stating that the extra electronics used for the dock in no way impede the operating speeds of your system: I get exactly the same SSD data transfer rates now as I did before fitting the dock. The Icy Dock is a really good investment.
