Product Overview Icy Dock has taken another one of its tried and true products and taught it some new tricks! Introducing the MB881U3-1SA 2.5” & 3.5” SATA and IDE hard drive adapter with docking station functionality.

It features the new USB 3.0 interface for up to a 5 Gb/sec transfer rate but still backwards compatible to USB 2.0 transfer speeds. The MB881U3-1SA is perfect for any DIY user or IT Professional in need of a quality hard drive adapter. This adapter will work with both SATA drives and IDE drives and use them on a USB 3.0 interface. The 2.5" SATA/IDE drives can be powered with the USB cable alone. A power adapter is included for faster or bigger 2.5" hard drives or 3.5" hard drives. Using the USB 3.0 interface will maximize the IDE drives read/write speeds not found on other USB 2.0 products.

What benefits can be found in the Icy Dock MB881U3-1SA over other HDD adapters is that it is space saving, better heat dispassion, no messy wires all around the desk, looks nicer, and most of all USB 3.0 interface. The MB881U3-1SA will accept almost any size of 2.5" / 3.5" IDE and SATA hard drives. The on/off button makes it easy to conserve energy and extend the life of a drive The MB881U3-1SA features a detachable stand which can be removed from the adapter for better portability, with the newer smaller included power adapter, the MB881U3-1SA can be easily slid into a laptop bag. This lightweight dock can lay on any surface for hard drive stability and is small enough to grasp with just a hand. The dock and the stand are light enough to move and reposition in different areas.

Icy Dock MB881U3-1SA SATA/IDE USB 3.0 Pro Adapter with Docking Stand is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Icy Dock is a lovely little disc reader and docking station Everything was included in the box, as advertised. The docking station with stand, ac power adapter, USB 3 cable (Dock connector to USB 3), 4 pin Power Cord and a manual. The dock handles 2.5" and 3.5" IDE drives with connectors mounted on either edge of the station and in between them is the 4 pin power connector. They connect in the right way to allow the 4 pin power connection without trouble. On the base of the station are the connectors for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA drives, they are powered by the connector and the drives are easy to fit. You can fit all drives with or without the green plastic stand slotted onto the rear of the station. If you use the Dock as a permanent spare disc or backup disc reader then it is very neat when standing. The body is lightweight plastic and can seem flimsy but the metal stand adds weight. From defunct PCs I have 5 x 3.5" SATA drives and 2 x 3.5" IDE drives. These were all easily read on an iMac albeit the 2 IDE drives are so old and small that they are now unusable. The 1 x 2.5" ATA and 1 x 2.5" IDE laptop drives were readable. A great external drive docking station for the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok so far on Sata, not tested on IDE yet, Mounts disks ok on Linus mint 15, but fails to do a speed benchmark or format, probably a Linux USB 3 problem, not the device. Will update to Mint 16 some time and retry benchmark. As I have not tested all functionality unable to recommend, my failing, not the unit.
