Product Overview

Introducing the Icy Dock ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1

Full Metal Quad Bay 2.5" SATA 6Gbps Hard Drive/SSD Hot Swap Mobile Rack Cage for use in a single external 5.25" bay. The MB994SP-4SB-1 is predicated off the incredibly popular MB994SP-4S, while taking its general concept but, with a SATA only interface and adding the fan power switch. In addition, there is only one 4 pin power connector that will reduce the amount of cables required. The MB994SP-4SB-1 allows for many more users to use this backplane in their homes with the reduced cost. The dual 40mm cooling fans to in addition to the power switch for the fans allow for the best flexibility – Turn off when using SSD’s and on when using mechanical SATA hard drives. Furthermore, this device utilizes Active Power Technology, so that the device only power up if there are drives installed.

Strong Design

The MB994SP-4SB-1 is constructed of rugged full metal to hold up in the toughest of conditions. It includes ventilation slots on the front and back for maximum airflow to keep your drives running cool, and an LED is placed on the front of each drive tray to give the user drive status at all times. The ToughArmor's rugged full metal design is also perfect for industrial and medical devices that may require a flammability rating as the rugged full metal material is considered to be already compliant with flammability requirements.

EZ Slide, EZ Life

The MB994SP-4SB-1 utilizes our EZ Slide Mini Trays, making drive interchangeability and maintenance completely hassle free. The trays are built using rugged full metal so that they are durable for many lifetimes, but will not weigh you down when transporting your data from system to system. And featuring a full cage design, the added top drive cover provides added protection while moving the drive. The trays are also designed to accommodate 5mm, 7mm, 9.5mm, 12.5mm & 15mm drives giving you the ultimate universal 2.5" hot swap bay.

ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB994SP-4SB-1, 4 Bay 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD Backplane Cage, Rugged, Full Metal, 2x 40mm Fan, EZ-Slide Tra is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great product buy buyer beware Pros: This is a great product to turn a 5 1/4 drive bay into a housing for 4x SSD's with the ability to easily switch drives out and not mess around with cables... it'll also save you space on drive power cables as it uses a single cable. Cons: If you have a micro ATX case the poor design of the unit leaves the power socket too close to the edge and is very likely you'll be unable to plug it in because its too close to the motherboard. Also the unit is a VERY tight fit getting into the bay. Personally I had to mount the unit upside down to be able to power it, and as a result can only make use of 3 bays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and really good Icy Dock can make some fantastic kit. This is one of them. Well built, well finished, good spec and thoughtfully laid out. I would guess the fans are at least 30-35db but the off button is ideal if you are running SSD's inside it as they don't need the cooling. All metal construction helps dissipate heat as well. All in all comes recommended and looks good once installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Offsite Backups Used this with a 4 Port Highpoint RocketRAID 640 Lite Internal PCI-e 2.0 x4 to SATA 6Gb/s RAID Controller Card and 4x 2TB Samsung ST2000LM003 Spinpoint M9T 2.5" Hard Drives (SATA III). All three items work in harmony and allow for hot-swap so good for client to take one disk offsite each week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New X-99 Build This was an essential part of my new build as I needed to remove all my drive trays and use the 5.25 bays instead. It is of fantastic build quality, however the 2 supplied 80 mm fans were so loud, it was like having a hoover on. Took me a while trying to figure out what was making the noise. It was easy enough to remove them, and I'm not replacing them with anything. Wouldn't normally use fans to cool my ssd's, so don't see the point in doing so here. Other than that it is a great product. Scans service was excellent as usual
