Transferring files from an old hard drive to your new system can be quite annoying. You have to open your system up, mount the drive, etc. If you have an older drive this can take even longer because many new motherboards do not even have IDE connections. This is where the ICY DOCK MB881U3-1SA EZ-Dock comes in. It is a neat little USB 3.0 hard drive dock that supports 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch SATA and IDE drives. Let’s take a look…
