Bjorn3D - Imagine if your laptop suddenly died due to an overheated processor or a burned out motherboard or a broken AC adapter. What are you going to do with all that precious data on the hard drive? Well, the first thing you'll probably do is panic. Then, maybe you'll kick yourself, and maybe even swear some profanity to the laptop maker. And all because you're not doing a routine backup of your data. Okay, after all that panic and all that anger is released, it’s time to find a solution to retrieve your valuable data. One solution would be to take your laptop to data recovery professionals and have them charge you an insane amount of money just to retrieve your data. Or you can just buy a laptop hard drive converter which allows you to read the hard drive data on your desktop either via the USB or IDE. Well, that’s exactly what the ICY Dock’s MB448UR comes to play. The MB448 is actually a line of the laptop hard drive enclosure which ICY Dock currently carries. The differences among different MB448s lie on the internal host connectors (either via 40 pin IDE or USB) and external connectors (USB).   The enclosure is designed to accommodate 2.5’’ IDE hard drive. The MB448UR that we will be looking at today is their most versatile 2.5’’ enclosure as it functions not only as an internal enclosure, it can be used as external enclosure as well, so it can be used as a portable storage device.
