How to Choose the Right 2.5" to 3.5" SSD / Hard Drive Converter?
"Icy Dock has a great solution for those wanting to use 2.5” SSD, SAS or Hybrid hard drives in existing hardware that only supports 3.5” hard drives. Purchasing of these converters would be a cheaper solution than swapping out other hardware. With no loss of performance, there is no reason you have to replace your hardware just to take advantage of the latest 2.5” hard drives." http://www.legitreviews.com

"The way the Icy Dock HDD Convertor works is rather slick, you set the drive on the rail, then you close the lid, closing the lid pushes the drive forward into the SATA connections on the PCB board inside and effectively locks it into place.The Icy Dock 2.5″ to 3.5″ Hard Drive Converter is a great little product that can be very useful, it’s well made and really it’s just a great little product. I can easily recommend this product as it’s simple and works great."
"the fact that all solid state disks are in the 2.5 inch format has created a problem for consumers who wants to have SSDs in their desktop systems. For the time being there are very few solutions like this so Icy Dock is in a good spot with this enclosure"
"This converter is in all regards a rather simple product, but thanks to its ease-of-use and very sturdy build-quality, it's well-worth a purchase if you want a more robust mount for your SSD. It sure beats the pants off simple metal brackets that are also being sold."

Hot Swap - Hot swapping is the ability to remove and replace components of a machine, usually a computer, while it is operating. Once the appropriate software is installed on the computer, one can plug and unplug the hot-swap component without rebooting.
Removable - With Removal Tray feature, this will make easy installation and expand hard drive capacity without open case or screw. We provide a series of the Removal Tray that is compatible with other series, so you may interchange tray in second.with other series, so you may interchange tray in second.
