Last month we tested the Icy Dock FlexCage MB973SP-2B, a three HDD into two 5.25" drive bay adapter that includes dual USB 3.0 connectivity. Today we're back with another FlexCage product from Icy Dock. The MB975SP-B stuffs five 3.5" HDD's into just three 5.25" optical disk bays.
With optical media on the way out and digital media on the rise, the FlexCage products allow for an easy transition from unreliable, fragile and slow technology to the golden standard, mechanical disk storage.
Let's take a look.
The MB975SP-B spec sheet is straightforward, five 3.5" HDD's in three 5.25" optical drive bays with a cooling fan, adequate power delivered to the drives via three SATA power plugs and an 80mm fan to keep everything cool.
The cooling fan has three speed settings - low, high and our favorite during testing, Smart Cooling, an automatic temperature sensing setting that eliminates any possible fan noise until you fill the cage and start crunching random data.
At the time of writing we couldn't find the MB975SP-B available at Newegg or through Google shopping. The SATA II model the MB975SP-B is replacing is on Amazon for $113.33, for reference only.
