HDD enclosure made by professionals, for Professionals
The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S R1 is a self contained hardware dual bay RAID HDD enclosure that operates independent of your computer. Which means it won’t share you system resource like a software RAID, and you can connect it to any system that has a USB port to access your data on the go without changing your storage configurations. The MB662U3-2S R1 gives you the flexibility to choose between RAID 0 (FAST – Performance), RAID 1 (SAFE – Protect), BIG and JBOD mode.

User Friendly Design
The foundation of the EZConvert Air Lite stems from it’s ability to rapidly cool drives. A top-free open air design quickly disperses heat away from drives by allowing it to ‘breathe’ instead of fully enclosing it. This is crucial during intense applications and may lead to better performance since it’s well known that excessive heat can interfere with your system’s ability to perform optimally. We’ve strategically placed ventilated slots around the converter allowing heat to escape from all sides and angles, while the metal frame acts as a giant heat sink to quickly cool your hard drives. The open air design, ventilated slots, and metal frame combine to produce an advanced cooling system to put your mind at ease.

The easy to read front LED indicators will indicate when a drive is ejected, accessed, or has failed. When the unit is in the process of rebuilding the RAID table in RAID 1 mode, a rebuilding indicator light in the rear will display. The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S R1 conveniently adds LED control so the front and rear LED indicators can be disabled when needed. This is perfect for people who set the enclosure in their bedroom and prefer to turn the LEDs off at night; this function can be changed via dip switch on the rear panel. Additionally, the easy-to-use RAID monitoring software lets you easily monitoring the RAID status and S.M.A.R.T information with both PC and Mac.

SuperSpeed Performance
Take advantage of USB 3.0 interface with UASP support (PC users require Windows 8 and Host support, Mac supports it natively). Users will be able to transfer photos, home videos, movies, and music at blazing fast speeds. The USB 3.0 interface is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0, so using the MB662U3-2S R1 on your legacy PC or Mac is not a problem. If the system supports USB 3.0, you will be able to take advantage of the superior performance capabilities – which is crucial for professionals who want tools that perform their jobs quickly and efficiently.

Supreme Build Quality for Maximum Reliability
It is known that the most common causes of disk failure are poor heat management and mechanical agitation. Taking this into consideration, the build of the MB662U3-2S R1 uses a solid aluminum body construction which adds heat dissipation, strength, and protection to your hard drives. The ICYRaid MB662U3-2S R1 in addition reduces external vibrations from reaching the sensitive hard disks by enclosing the drive within a vibration reducing cage, minimizing the possibility of disk damage.

Effective Cooling
Protecting your data also requires that it is constantly maintained to perform at its best. Because hard drives are susceptible to heat failure, it is important to have an active cooling solution. Using the ultra-quiet ball bearing 40mm fan with variable fan speed control ensures optimal heat dissipation or quiet operation for a range of applications such as a recording studio or production room.

Optional EZConvert for 2.5″ SSD support
Use our lineup of EZConvert 2.5″ to 3.5″ SSD converter to install a 2.5″ SSD and take advantage of the blazing fast speed SSDs have paired with the speed of RAID 0 for the ultimate video editing experience -achieve up to 300 MB/s file transfers with this configuration.
