Start with ICY BOX into a Superfast Future

The new ICY BOX IB-250StU3-B is an external enclosure for a 2.5" SATA HDD. The larger ICY BOX IB-318StU3-B is for a 3.5" SATA HDD. Both offer USB 3.0 with a theoretical data transfer speed of 5.0 GBit/s. That's some ten times the USB 2.0 speed of 480 MBit/s. Those who are used to store greater amounts of data like from Blu-ray discs will appreciate an ICY BOX with USB 3.0. Precondition is a USB 3.0 cable as well as a host with a USB 3.0 controller. As computers with USB 3.0 controllers are still quite rare, ICY BOX offers a solution that provides that controller on a PCI-E-card. It is capable to connect printers, USB-sticks and the like too. Thus there is no need to wait for those new computers. As USB 3.0 is downward compatible it is possible to connect devices which offer "only" USB 2.0.

The age of the superfast USB has begun.

That means that further ICY BOX products with USB 3.0 will follow soon. The next ones will be a docking station for 2.5 and 3.5" HDDs and a host adapter for laptops.
