Icy Dock MB155SP-B
Here we get our first look at the actual enclosure. There are five drives across and everything is packed pretty tight.
There isn't a locking mechanism other than the blue latch that secures the pivoting arm that allows you to pull the drive from the enclosure.
The drive cages are simple to use. The black plastic spacer comes off and HDD drops between the arms. Four screws secure the drive to the cage.
The enclosure has four mounting points on each side. These are in the same location as they are on an optical drive.
Here we see all of the electrical connectors as well as the 92mm fan.
Here we see the two and three-pin fan ports as well as the fan speed control jumper.
Three SATA power ports are fit closely together along the top right side of the PCB.
Each drive has its own SATA port along the bottom and side of the enclosure.
We did run into one issue that is important for some applications. The FatCage MB155SP-B won't work in some tower cases that have guides between each optical drive bay. Above the FatCage is another Icy Dock product that has a recessed area so the guides pass through. Many tool-less cases have the guides. There isn't a manual that says you can't cut the metal tabs off of the case to make a product like the FatCage fit, just be careful.
Still, this unit is designed mainly for server use and will fit in many 4u cases.
