Product Overview Expand Your Opportunities!

Have you ever wished you could put an SSD or 2nd HDD in your laptop, because you are feeling that the boot times and data access becomes more and more slowly or you have realized that you have far too much data to fit on your 1st regular HDD inside your laptop?

By putting an IB-AC642 in your optical bay, you can add a SSD or second hard drive to your computer.

Adding a solid state drive to your system can make it significantly faster, from decimating the boot times to speeding up application launch and data access or storing all of your large files on a 2nd regular hard drive.

Laptops rarely have a second HDD bay though. Fortunately, with an IB-AC642, you can add a second drive to your computer easily. With flash drives, online streaming video, and downloadable software installs becoming more popular, many users find themselves using the CD/DVD drive less and less, so replacing it with an SSD or 2nd HDD can be a good investment. Furthermore, in the rare cases that you do need access to optical media; you can always plug in your old DVD drive externally by using the enclosed external Features The package include a metal enclosure with an integrated USB 2.0 cable and an hard plastic HDD adapter. The adapter can be integrated into a slimline slot with a 2.5" HDD/SSD installed inside. The drive that was put out can be inserted in to the USB 2.0 metal enclosure to be used when needed.

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.

Icy Box IB-AC642 Adapter to add a 2.5" SSD/HDD 2nd Drive to your Notebook inc External USB Housing Also is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this I bought this for my dad's new laptop, and I think I might get one for my own laptop. I'd used the Akasa variant of this before, but it didn't have the caddy that allows you to make an external ODD. The caddy makes this one so much better. I mean, you never know when you'll need to use your ODD. For reading, the caddy will work fine with the power from one USB; however, it also comes with a USB power cable in case you need to burn a disc. Also, the HDD tray has a built in usage LED, which I think was a nice touch.
