ICY DOCK MB561US-4S INTRODUCTION
Just a few short years ago the thought of having terabytes of external storage either at home or in the office was mind-blowing. Fast forward to today and it has almost become a necessity, and not just for computer enthusiasts. The everyday computer user can take full advantage of extra space to store backups of school assignments, work files, or more fun things like pictures and videos. The saying “you can never have enough storage” rings true now more than ever.
Enter the Icy Dock MB561US-4S. It's an attractive quad-bay enclosure that offers the choice of using JBOD or RAID 0 arrays and data can be accessed through a USB or high speed eSATA connection. Each bay supports up to a 1TB drive for a maximum of 4TB of storage, which should be enough to satisfy even the most demanding of users. Sounds promising, but it is just one fish in a large sea of external enclosures. Let's take a closer look at it and see what sets it apart from the rest.
