Icy Dock MB080U3S-1SB Blizzard 3.5″ SATA External Hard Drive Enclosure Review

Having looked at a number of external storage options recently, it would be safe to say that on the most part, all of these options take a conservative and refined approach to their design with slim builds, clean lines and stylish looks that will fit into virtually any setup.

We do find however that there are a large number of people that don’t always want the same clean refined looks to their systems and peripherals and look more towards the modded scene where everything is making a statement. Any device manufacturer is aware that this group of users is out there and this is why we find cases, components and everything between that are geared towards the modding community. This doesn’t necessarily mean that each and every item that they have will be modified in some way, but if there is something unique in the product that makes it stand out from the crowd then there is a certain chance that it will appeal to one or more people.

Icy Dock’s Blizzard enclosure that we are looking at today is one such item that breaks the mould with its off the cuff design that not only separates it from other external enclosures, but also Icy Dock’s own product range. As we will see this new style of design may be a bit marmite to some, but its been thought through well with no sacrifice on performance.
