ICY DOCK ICYCube MB561U3S-4S 4 Bay External HDD Enclosure Review

Storage, it always seems like we need more of it, especially with file sizes increasing for media and more importantly games. While some of you may have cases that give you ample space to load them up with hard drives there are others who have small form factor system or even work from a laptop where storage space is limited. There is where external hard drive enclosures come into place. Today we are taking a look at a pretty awesome 4-bay external hard drive enclosure that supports 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives and has both USB 3.0 and eSATA connections. The enclosure I am talking about is ICY DOCK’s ICYCube MB561U3S-4S. Let’s load it up with drives and see what we can do with it.

Vantec NexStar HX2R Hard Drive Enclosure Review

Who says you can never have enough storage. Well you really can not have too much. I myself have a few different computers around my house for different tasks, and I like to back them up and also share files over the network. External hard drives and enclosures are a great tool for keeping around your house or even on the go. There are so many different enclosures and NAS boxes on the market. Some do RAID, other’s do JBOD, some can hold only 1 drive and some can go up to 4 drives. Some of the cool things with the technology of the past few years is that we now have eSATA and USB 3.0. USB 3.0 offers up to 5 Gbps while eSATA offers less speed at around 3 Gbps. So today we will be reviewing the Vantec NexStar HX2R dual SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, so stick around and see if it would make a nice addition to your desk or office.
