Product Overview

Practical storage box

External hard drives are the latest trend. And rightly so, because they can always be transported and connected to another device. The ICY BOX 3620U3 can accommodate up to two hard disks at once. With all current SATA standards are supported, so, for example, older media can still be used.

The stylish enclosure made of aluminum not only looks cool, but directs the produced heat efficiency from within the enclosure to the outside. In addition, the cooling is further enhanced by a temperature-controlled fan, which quietly ensures proper air circulation.

The installation of hard disks into the IB-3620SU3 is done quickly and easily without any tools. Thanks to the modern EasySwap® technology , they can be replaced quickly at any time. We did not forget the environment either - The ICY BOX has a sleep mode that reduces power consumption to a minimum.

All the versions of Windows from XP and Mac OS X are supported. The connection is done selectively either via a fast USB 3.0, with which the transfer rates of up to 5 Gb per second can be achieved, or eSATA. Each disk is then displayed as an individual drive (JBOD = "Just a Bunch of Disks").

Two to One

Two HDDs can be mounted inside the IB-3620U3. Both HDDs are connected to the PC with a USB 3.0 interface. In this way, a second enclosure is not needed.

Hot Tip

Thanks to HotSwap and Plug & Play and their advanced properties, the HDDs can be replaced or removed at any given moment. even while in operation. Additionally, in order that the HDDs will not be lodged in a hot environment, The enclosure is made of aluminium to dissipate the heat from inside and a temperature controlled fan is available as well.

Without (capacity) Limits

Even though only HDDs up to a height of 8,9 cm are fitting, their storage space is with no limit at all. This way even the largest HDD could be used in the IB-3620U3 without any disturbance.

• Silent operation by thermal controlled fan
• Energy saving by supporting sleep modus!

TekSpek Guides
Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

ICY BOX IB-3620U3 External JBOD System for 2x 3.5" SATA 3 HDD Via USB 3.0 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish Bought this item on the 24/12/19, spent £300 on 2 seagate 4tb hard drives, after 5 months the enclosure failed and the 2 drives are unreadable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product. Fast, smooth performer. Insert two 3.5" drives and plug into a USB port on you computer. Switch, hold 'On' in for a seconds and drives are found. That's it. I have a 4TB drive and a 2TB drive in mine,used to back up my Image Files and Office Files respectively. The Icybox goes automatically into sleep mode when the computer is switched off and wakes up when the computer is switched on again. Ideal for automatic back ups. High;y recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up This enclosure was very easy to set up. Handles easily screwed to hard drives with screws and screwdriver provided. Hard drives (I have one 1TB and one 2TB drive) slot in easily and it is quiet (sits on my desk under my monitors) and drives mount onto desktop at start up without problems and are easily accessible via the Finder (Apple Mac set-up).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fuss JBOD enclosure Works with no fuss, just plug and play. If you are really fussy about noise then know that the fan can be audible but depending on where you keep it you may well not hear it at all. I placed mine on a rubber mouse pad just to dampen any vibration noises too. For the price and functionality I'd happily recommend this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Handy bit of kit for the price provided you don't mind USB2 speed I've had this little box for a while now and have only recently got it to actually work with two drives. Initially it was happy running on USB3 with a single drive. Two drives and it would throw it's toys out of the pram with Windows detecting it as having malfunctioned. I tried various different drives and different host systems and all had the same problem. On a whim I plugged it in to a USB2 port and it is now happy as Larry, been up and running for 72 hours with no issues. Since discovering it's happy with USB2 I purchased a higher quality USB cable to see if that would help and while it did improve things on USB3 it doesn't appear to have fully resolved the issue. Rather than immediately breaking it ran for 10 minutes or so before deciding it wanted to go back to the slow lane. Bottom line is that this is a useful little enclosure if you've got a couple of drives you want to use and keep cool while you do so. Just be aware that you may have to settle for USB2 speeds if your unit is anything like my one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the job! Had 2 spare hard drives and no more space in my pc. This housing does the job nicely. Surprisingly quiet fan so I added some silicone feet to absorb HD noise and now its virtually silent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well The Icy-box IB-3620U3 works well, read and write to drives seems quite fast via USB 3 port, the only downside to this product is the very poor way in which the drives fit into the case - I have 2 x 1Tb fitted which are quite slim, it may help if larger drives are fitted (say 2Tb upwards) as these tend to have a thicker case construction and may be more stable within the unit - but all works well and I'm pleased with the product - this unit does not have a eSata connection - USB3 only. Once again excellent service from Scan & the Courier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I'm giving this 5 stars, because although it has some small flaws, it's still incredibly good value for money and high quality. Here are the really good things: • Relatively cheap and easy to use. • The drives slot in nicely and the simple JBOD (just a bunch of disks) functionality is fine if you want to use drives independently. (If you want RAID functionality, you'll need an upgraded model.) • Fast sustained transfer speed (over 100MiB/s in my experience) and high reliability. Here are some things to consider: • You'll need a decent USB 3.0 cable. I bought a generic one to begin with and couldn't get speeds over 40MiB/s. I replaced it with an Amazon Basics cable and was sustaining speeds in excess of 100MiB/s, so the cable quality is important. • The fan is not silent. In fact, it's buzzy and annoying. You can unscrew the back plate and unplug it, but please note that some drives (non-green drives) will run very hot and might overheat. I recommend replacing the fan with a quieter 2-pin model. • The drives can cause vibration through the unit. I recommend an anti-vibration surface of some kind (i.e., a rubber mat of some kind). Overall, this is definitely a worthwhile purchase, if you keep in mind the small caveats above.

Fan Dimension and Specs

Any idea what the dimensions and specifications of the fan installed are? As it sounds to be a bit noisy from reviewers and if I get this enclosure I would consider replacing with a silent one. Info on it is a little scarce. Some enclosures are odd industrial fans with non-standard voltages hence the question.
Asked by: NorBdelta
Quiet when fan is running auto mode noise rises slightly in fan 3 mode. This only happens when the drives are running hard for a long period of time e.g.for an overnight back up. The unit sits on my desk next to the monitor - I do not find distracting in the least.

Scan Code: LN55953 Manufacturer Code: IB-3620U3 - described as having 10, 100 and 1000Mb LAN connectivity - Icy Box support says NO LAN connectivity..

I'm looking for an External HDD box with 1000Mb LAN connectivity, which your details show the item Scan Code: LN55953 Manufacturer Code: IB-3620U3 as having. However, on www.raidsonic.de Pictures it is shown it as having ONLY USB3 connectivity. Please can you confirm if your Scan Code: LN55953 has 1000Mb LAN connectivity, or just USB3. Thanks.
