Product Overview The external JBOD enclosure can accommodate a total of eight SATA I / II / III hard drives or SSDs. It consists largely of aluminum and is therefore stable and dissipates heat very well. The cooling of the drives is achieved due to two temperature controlled 80mm fan on the back and corresponding air-inlets support below the drive bays on the front. The door of the enclosure can be locked.

The display of the JBOD system informs through various LEDs about operation, fan, interfaces and disk usage. As a huge JBOD data storage system can provide its full function. Except the existing external interfaces USB 3.0 and eSATA the ability to use hard drives without any capacity constraints play a big role as well as .

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.

If there was an 'Included in the Box' statement or complete Product Details this question may not have been necessary?

How are the Drives Powered - Internal PSU? - Via USB3 Cables? - or?

How many USB3 Cables are required, the photo is not clear enough to determine if the rear Ports are eSATA or USB3?

Seems obvious that they will but don't want to waste time, please confirm that the 2.5 to 3.5 All Metal Drive Adaptor Scan # LN46274
will slot into this box.

Thanks for your time, best wishes, Stan TAYLOR

Answer: 
1. The disks are supported on narrow rails and plug into SATA power and data connectors on a backplane in the enclosure

2. The disks are powered from an internal power supply.
A mains lead is provided

3. There are 2 rear ports, one eSATA and one USB3.
Cables for both are provided.
If you are using eSATA, then the controller in the PC must have port multiplier capability (because you are attaching multiple drives to one SATA port)

4. To insert and remove the disks you must attach a (somewhat flimsy) plastic handle to the front screw positions on each disk. More accurately, the handle is used to remove the disk from the SATA connectors - just move it to the 'down' position. 8 handles + 16 screws + small screwdriver are in the box.

5. Once the disks are inserted, they are held more securely in position by a metal door + thumbscrew arrangement. There are two of these, one at the top and one below, each retaining 4 disks.

6. The case door is lockable and is also held in place by a plastic clip affair. You may want to remove this (2 screws) as it is unnecessary and may require a sharp tug to open.

7. Also in the box are two (pretty useless) instruction leaflets, one in English, one in German (ICY BOX products are distributed by the German company RaidSonic Technology)

8. The enclosure is much smaller than the picture suggests - 13" high x 5" wide x 8.5" deep.

9. What else is needed? Nothing - other than the correct ports on the PC.

10. No experience of using drive adapters in this enclosure, so I can't answer that one. The adapter would need to provide the same external dimensions as a 3.5" disk, position the connectors in the right place, and be able to accept the screw-on handle...

11. Err - that's it...

Hope this helps - kind regards

PS: I have no connection to either Scan or RaidSonic

Answer: 
Don't know - as I guess you're aware, finding any info on stuff like this is nigh on impossible.

For what it's worth, I'm using it with a StarTech PEXESAT32 which is based on a Marvell 88SE9128 chip. Works just fine.

[Note: ...but this card, although it has 2 x eSATA ports, only has port multiplier capability on a single port at a time. I also tried a StarTech PEXESAT322i which claims to provide port multiplier capability on 2 ports concurrently. This card is based on an ASMedia 106x chip. I had intermittent problems (logged as drive controller errors) so gave up on that one and now have 2 x PEXESAT32 cards installed, using 1 port on each to connect to 2 external enclosures. No, I'm not using RAID.]

Hope this helps

Seems like it. The spec details on the RaidSonic site give the transfer rate as:
USB 3.0 up to 5 Gbit/s, eSATA up to 3.0 Gbit/s
