Icy Dock EZConvert Series Overview Review 50 |

Today, we're using the same system we test consumer SSDs on every day. To eliminate the need of running a secure erase command between tests, we're using an OCZ Storage Solutions Vector 150 120GB drive that has excellent write consistency.

With the drive placed in each of the enclosures, we ran Crystal Disk Mark to measure performance. At the end of the enclosure tests, we ran CDM a final time with the drive connected straight to the motherboard.

CDM Write

In our read and write test with a drive attached directly to the system and with the drive installed in the EZConvert adapters, the performance is the same. The adapters do not degrade performance.

Final Thoughts


When needed, the Icy Dock EZConvert and EZConvert Pro products simplify the integration of 2.5-inch storage products in what is still a 3.5-inch world. Technology always changes, but some parts don't require the latest and greatest to stay ahead of the curve. Computer cases and servers are two very good examples.

SSDs also breathe new life into old computers by increasing disk performance, the slowest component in the system. Often, even computers as old as six or seven years can run like brand new systems simply by installing an SSD.

Getting that SSD to fit, though, is another story, one that can easily be fixed with an EZConvert.
