Icy Dock is proud to introduce the upgraded version of its dual bay ICYRaid MB662USEB-2S FireWire 800, eSATA & USB 2.0 3.5” RAID enclosure that set the standard for media professionals and home users alike. The new MB662USEB-2S-1 offers all of the features from the previous MB662USEB Series, and further builds upon it with increased functionality, while at the same time, offering a perfect combination of reliability and performance.

For media professionals, the material they record and produce determine their individual success in their industry. The irreproducible files captured by camcorder, camera or microphone are the definition of their work. Unfortunately, in the digital age, the mediums we save these files on are prone to damage and failure. We at Icy Dock understand the importance of these irreplaceable files and have come up with a solution to protect the information on sensitive hard disks from being lost or destroyed. The MB662USEB-2S-1 dual bay RAID drive offers increased performance or reliability for the hard drives that are used in conjunction with it. The enclosure can be set to RAID 1 (SAFE) for data redundancy, creating backups of irreplaceable data by a hardware controller to insure information security, or RAID 0 (FAST) for data striping, increasing the performance of the drives for large data transfers (i.e. movie files and batch RAW images). The enclosure can also be set to BIG for the concatenation of two disks, or JBOD for ease of access to two disks individually.

Like the previous MB662USEB Series devices, the MB662USEB-2S-1 consists of a solid aluminum construction for added portability, strength, and protection. The most common causes of disk failure are poor heat management and mechanical agitation. The MB662USEB-2S-1 reduces external vibrations from reaching the sensitive hard disks by enclosing the drive within a vibration reducing cage, minimizing the possibility of disk damage. The solid aluminum body keeps the drive temperatures low, while the ultra-quiet Sunon MagLev 40mm fan with variable fan speed control ensures optimal heat dissipation and quiet operation for silent environment applications such as a recording studio or production room.

The MB662USEB-2S-1 dual bay RAID enclosure is a flexible device with various interfaces, allowing the enclosure to be connected by either USB 2.0, eSATA or Firewire 800. Using a optional FireWire 800 to FireWire 400 cable you can easily connect the enclosure to your Firewire 400 port (this cable is NOT included). The RAID controller can utilize two disks of different capacities up to and greater than 3TB, and set them into a variety of RAID configuration. Its tool-less design offers easy drive installation and quick access to the drives in the event that a disk needs to be replaced or upgraded. Unlike a fixed disk RAID enclosure, the two hard drives can be easily replaced, avoiding the risk of compromising sensitive, irreplaceable data on the remaining disk during shipping and repair. The MB662USEB-2S-1 offers both performance and reliability in a small, flexible, attractive enclosure.
