Icy Dock offers up USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure for $40

Buying a USB 3.0 compatible external hard drive comes at a premium price. Thatís mainly because manufacturers know they can charge a premium for the extra connection speed. But Icy Dock has decided to save you some cash by offering up a USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure for just $40.
The Icy Dock MB668Y3-1SB is a tool-less 2.5″ SATA HDD and SSD enclosure with a USB 3.0 connection. That means you can take any 2.5″ hard drive, put it inside the 1SB, and have a perfectly good portable SuperSpeed storage device.
The enclosure is made an aluminium body with sections of plastic. It weighs 2.88 ounces, and measures 76.3 x 13 x 150mm. Once a drive is inserted it can be bus powered, but thereís an optional 5V DC is you need it. For $40 youíd expect just the case, but Icy Dock throws in a leather pouch, USB 3.0 cable, and DC to USB A type power cable.

The Icy Dock MB668Y3-1SB enclosure is available now for $40 from Buywee.com
