ICY DOCK EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S R1 is a full metal dual drive 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD to 3.5" SATA HDD converter with built-in RAID 0 (FAST), RAID 1 (SAFE), JBOD and BIG functions.
The MB982SPR-2S R1 converts two 2.5" SATA hard drives or SSD from 5 - 9.5mm drive height into an exact same dimension, screw holes and connector locations of 3.5" SATA hard drive. With a standalone RAID function, you can easily add a 2.5" HDD / SSD RAID array anywhere a 3.5" SATA drive is used (such as internal 3.5" drive bay, custom build 3.5" HDD slot, etc.) without needing to add a RAID controller card or 2.5" drive mounting kit. Its exclusive tool-less drive installation design let you effortlessly add/remove drives without dismount the converter. Moreover, the metal heat dissipation construction with airflow vents provides maximum passive cooling to ensure reliable performance.
Designed to maximize the flexibility of 3.5" drive space with minimum downtime and costs, the MB982SPR-2S R1 is ideal for a wide range of applications that require OS drive redundancy or high IOPS values such as medical & military systems, government agencies computers, Industrial PCs, and more.
Standalone Built-in Hardware RAID Controller
The EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S R1 is a self-contained hardware RAID 2.5" to 3.5" drive converter that gives you the flexibility to choose between RAID 0 (FAST), RAID 1 (SAFE), BIG and JBOD modes. With its built-in high performance SATA 3 RAID chipset, the converter operates independently of your system with its own processor and memory to run the RAID applications, offering the next level reliability comparing to software RAID. Software RAID can be infected by viruses and cause the RAID table to be corrupted, result in permanent data loss from the drives.
With the standalone RAID function you can easily add 2.5" HDD / SSD RAID array into anywhere a 3.5" SATA drive is used via a single SATA connection without the need of an additional RAID controller card or drive mounting kit. For example, you can quickly replace your 2012 Mac Pro's 3.5" hard disk drive with 2 x 2.5" drives in RAID 0 array for faster transfer speed, or create 2 x 2.5" drives in RAID 1 array to replace the 3.5" SATA HDD in your pre-existing POS system to prevent a downed system caused by unexpected drive failure. The JBOD mode allows you to see two individual drives (requires SATA port-multiple on the host end to detect both drives), and BIG mode provides maximum storage capacity into a single point, by combining two hard drives storage capacity sizes into a single large storage volume. The variety of RAID configurations that MB982SPR-2S R1 offers maximize uses for your 3.5" hard drive space.
Same Exact Dimension as 3.5" Hard Drive
The EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S R1 converts up to two standard 2.5" SATA HDD / SSD into an exact 3.5" SATA hard drive form factor. Since it has exact same dimension, screw holes and connector locations of 3.5" SATA hard drive, it can fit into any 3.5" SAS or SATA hard drive spaces without any modifications to the system structure. To ensure hassle-free drive installation, the EZConvert Pro MB982SPR-2S uses tool-less drive installation design which unitizes a number of components to accommodate all type of 2.5" SATA HDD / SSD drive height from 5mm to 9.5mm. To install 2.5" HDD / SSD is easy, simply open the top cover of the converter and put 2.5" HDD / SSD in the converter and close the top cover. The self-locking mechanism locks in the drive and ensures drives are securely connected once the top cover is closed.
Limitless Applications, Unlimited Purposes
The varieties of applications that use 3.5" SATA hard drive are endless, some of which may include: personal desktop computer, Mac system, gaming rig, network attached storage, surveillance system, POS system, video rendering workstation, or enterprise data servers. Being able to reap the benefits of 2.5" SATA HDD / SSD but still meet the requirements of the 3.5" form factor can be very rewarding. For example, Solid-State Drives provide faster data transfer speeds and lower temperature output and can be a beneficial upgrade in many systems. With MB982SPR-2S R1, you can convert 2 x 2.5" SATA SSD or notebook drive into a 3.5" SATA drive hassle-free.
