Product Overview

Double Data Protection Ii

When a big amount of data is transported comfortably, then ICY BOX IB-254U3 is the perfect companion. It is simply connected via USB 3.0 to a PC, media player or smart-TV once the 2.5" SATA hard disk was installed into it without the use of any tool. Thanks to its modern interface, the transfer rates reach 5 GBit/second in order to provide high speed working environment. But no worries, the old standards are still supported since USB is downwards compatible.

Even though the enclosure seems slim an HDD up to 9 mm high can be built into it. The stable aluminum-frame in combination with the silicone sleeve renders the IB-254U3 exceptionally protected against shock and scratches. Ideal for mobile use both private as well as business.

ICY BOX IB-254U3, 2.5" USB 3.0 Enclosure, SATA III HDD - 6Gbit/s, Silicon Protection Cover, Hot Swap, Grey is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tesco Value look but does the job I used it for accessing of my old HD during the transfer to a new SSD. It worked well although mechanically this SATA case is on the low end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 2.5'' enclosure out there No downsides, the rubber outer case is a nice touch
Date published: 2016-02-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tool free design not necessarily easier to assemble. I found it very fiddly to insert the tiny circuit board into the cradle which also seemed a bit flimsy. You don't want to change the HD too often with this drive. It does the job I suppose but with hindsight I would have bought something of better quality. I wouldn't mind using screws as long as the HD was easy to install and the whole unit felt better constructed. A tool free design is not necessarily a good design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money Good value for money. But I don't think the interface is USB3.0 SuperSpeed. Transfer between 2 SATA-III SSDs with theoretical speed of ~500MB/s (one which is inside this enclosure) through USB3.0 SuperSpeed port gives me about 100MB/s. I was expecting anywhere between 300MB/s or higher. However I really like the build and the silicone protection sleeve that comes with it. For the price I certainly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Icy Box IB-254U3 USB3 External 2.5" Aluminium case This Icy Box IB-254U3 Toolless External Aluminium case has a 128GB SanDisk X110 Enterprise Class 24x7 2.5" SSD (also from Scan) now installed in it. Very easy to do. The result is perfect for the anyone who travels a lot be it work or play, Right size for the bag but not too small to lose!. No moving bits to vibrate in the SSD to minimise data damage. Fast enough to marry up with an SSD based laptop, which it is! Oh! and it has a silicon/rubber protective cover for extra protection

Does this case come with a USB3 lead?

If not, does it require an A to A or A to B type?
Asked by: NickWOT
Yes it comes with a short lead. Bear in mind this type of drive can lose power if u use too long a cable which is presumably why they give u such a short cable.
