The disk space requirements are constantly growing. And consequently, demands on keeping information safe and sound are also raising. Nowadays its common to have more than one hard drive in your machine. Of course for various reasons people prefer to have some disk space outside their machines too. Today we review one product that is intended to fill that exact spot - Icy Dock MB662US-2S.

Icy Dock became popular two years ago with their hard drive docking stations, but that is in no way the only thing they make. They do in fact have a wide range of products for creating external hard drive clusters, annotating recently on tool-less designs. Kindly enough they supplied us with a sample from their new product - MB662US-2S. Its price is set at $110 and it is being basically a two slot external enclosure with integrated RAID controller.
