First Look

The Icy Box comes with everything you need to get up and running in no time (well, everything except a hard drive). Three different cables are included: from left to right, USB 2.0 cable, USB power adapter and eSATA cable. The USB power adapter is to be used if you will be using a non-powered USB hub, such as a USB port on a keyboard. Also included with the Icy Box is a 3.5" drive bay housing. The housing fits in a spare floppy drive bay and you can insert the Icy Dock into the slot on the front of the dock to use it.

Here we see the Icy Box itself. The front of the Icy Box has its name printed, as well as "POWER" and "R/W" text. These text fields are lit blue when in use. The back panel of the Icy Box has connections for DC power, eSATA and USB 2.0.

The Icy Box dock is a pretty simple contraption. The inside connection points are spring-loaded, so when you push the drive in, it locks in place. Just press it in again to unlock and remove the drive.
