The two items we have for review today are the MS882SP-1S-1B and the MS990SP-B SSD/HDD converter and bracket. While both units are designed to mount 2½" drives in a standard 3½" location, each goes about it in a slightly different way. The 882 converts a single 2½" drive into a 3½" equivalent that is compatible with hot swap SATA bays, external enclosures and enterprise environments. The 990 bracket conversely holds one or two drives in a completely tool-less fashion, while still fitting within the confines of a single 3½" drive space.
Both units ship in retail boxes and are protected by bubble wrap. Each also includes a brief user installation guide and mounting hardware if applicable. Join me as I take a closer look at these Icy Dock drive accessories, starting with the MS990SP-B.
