ICY Box AC642

The perfect solution for problems with disk capacity on your laptop. Have you ever wished to add an SSD or a second HDD to your laptop and accelerate its boot time and data access? Is the capacity of your current drive not enough for you? You will not find a secondary hard drive for large files on standard laptops.

The IB AC642 frame for SSD or 2.5" HDD is easily installed in the optical drive bay. SSD can significantly speed up your operating system.

After removing the drive, you can put it into the external box (slim enclosure) that is included in the IB AC642 package. In the age of flash drives, online video streaming and software downloading, the CD/DVD drive is used less and less. And if you need the DVD drive, you can always attach the included external aluminium box with your drive via USB.

Using this box, I finally solved the overheating HDD for the older Aspire 5930G (HDD temperature under load was also more than 60st.C., cooling pad was a necessity). Now the HDD is heated up to max. 45st.C. HDD frame on substantially the entire plastic, the price could be lower. Pity that border on the HDD sold separately, the fair value would be around 200 CZK. Frame DVD drive is metallic, truly compact size USB cable is neatly tucked away, eject.
Seamless installation screws are packing metal frame for DVD plastic frame for HDD price could be lower

Perfect complement to the NTB. The second disk in the frame and a DVD drive becomes external - and so it so often need one. No major problems with HP Elitebookom, flax had to be constructed from DVD to unscrew the metal latch from the back and fastened it to a plastic disk with rámik - then make ntb from falling out. (It would also nevošlo DVD into your new dwelling)
Practical, adds value NTB. Pekné processing Suddenly I have an external DVD-to-use, and elsewhere working on supplying to DVD from only one USB, and writing. Well resolved tow. The sharp edges of the metal DVD box came together would predlžovačka USB, be dokúpiť.

Purchased for HP ProBook 4340s. HGST original 500 gigabytes 7 mm taken out on his place came SSD: Crucial M4 128 gigabytes of 7 mm and plotňák came to this reduction instead of the optical drive, which I gave to the reduction of her intended. 2 note: before you start to manipulate the components of the notebook, remove the battery and to eject the optical drive, and at the end is such a small blade (reduction) that you must take off the burner and attach the correct orientation according to one purchased plastic reduction ICY BOX. Regarding treatment, so that part into which you insert the HDD and optical drives her place, so she's incredibly artsy made. It's just a plastic cast, among whom I would definitely tried its strength or flexibility, because it might not stand on the whole. This part may be made of aluminum, is unfortunately a plastic of poor quality. Green LED that there is really no good, because when the HDD is active, overpowering slightly dark green across the room and has no justification, can fortunately a small PCB easily eject there 3pin. Conversely, the second part of your new product, ie. The outer body, if you want a container for removing the optical drive is very well handled. Plast is the only slot in the back, where do screw the screws that hold the burner inside, where you can eject the USB cable. Otherwise, the whole body as well as treated aluminum, which has a slightly matt surface finish. From the upper side of the logo ICY BOX and this part of the product looks really good, and not only after unpacking, but after half a year of use. External burner that from this second part you do not need an additional power cable (although the rear jack is present) or a second USB port, but simply eject rear USB cable, connect to a laptop or desktop and you can cool CD and DVD reading and burn. It works fine in: MS Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit, Windows 8 Pro 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit; GNU / Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin 64bit Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander 64bit. The price would be lower by one third. Overall rating: 70/100.
The outer part of the burner worked very well. Smooth operation of both devices. The inner part of the HDD handled very badly.

Tested on a laptop Lenovo L512, at first I swapped the DVD drive for the SSD, zmigroval OS from HDD to SSD, the SSD and HDD said so in my notebook SSD 180 gigabytes and 500 gigabytes External HDD box on the DVD drive with USB output is included. To install the DVD drive to the external box is needed to unscrew the rear part of the box, which is not described in the instructions

Into my laptop HP ProBook 4510s passes without any problem. External drive box has a nice appearance. (When inserting drives into the box, unscrew the back cover of the box, but do not take it as a negative just such advice)

The best thing to replace the optical disc drive from the original notebook, which was replaced with an SSD. Particularly, I liked that, needless to purchase anything more, just this plus two small screwdrivers and equipped. Mechanical disk can then be parked most of the time and a spin only when the accesses thereto, reducing consumption and noise from around the laptop in the conventional job. Fits perfectly into the ASUS N56VZ, smack remove the original "face plate" (the front) of the DVD drive I was terribly poorly.
Complete all what should be in a single package on the DVD drive was back she bolted metal portion of the bolt is too short for this box - in the package are not correct length bolts sometimes it can become jammed inside certain notebooks, albeit pick it up from there is not such a problem quite strong luminous green LED short USB cable to an external boxe, but it is the price of compactness

Simple assembly replacement screws (unscrewed at least one kid simply gets lost, it can not be avoided in any way, tested and verified by x times) After mounting fits well as on production (HP nx8740) Hard box to insert the removed drive need Prenda diode whose existence is pointless anyway
