Conclusion

The Tagan Icy Box has many nice features, like the ability to take two small capacity drives and make them look like one larger capacity drive. Also, you can take the drive with you wherever you go, unlocking the ability to show people your picture archives or home made movies with ease. A backup button allows you to use backup software to save all your irreplaceable data at the touch of a button, whether it's your work spreadsheets, that final paper you have to turn in tomorrow, or pictures of your kid taking their first steps. The speeds that this drive exhibited were also very respectable for an external enclosure. The results were similar across the external enclosures tested, making size and external appearance some of the deciding factors when purchasing an enclosure. All in all, this is a pretty good drive enclosure with only a few downsides - one being a poorly written and printed user manual, and another being the USB-only connection.

 

Pros:

  • JBOD
  • Respectable speeds
  • Sturdy enclosure

 

Cons:

  • No eSATA support
  • Poorly written documentation
  • Small cooling fan
