Pricing and Conclusion

Pricing

  • ToughArmor MB996SP-6SB – $90.14 (Amazon)
  • ICYBento MB559U3S-1S – $66.84 (Amazon)

The ToughArmor is in line with other (more cheaply made) equivalent solutions, but the ICYBento seems a bit on the high side compared to other equivalent 3.5" enclosures out there.

Warranty

ICYDock products ship with a 3-year warranty.

Conclusion

These two ICY DOCK products were well made and innovative. The metal housing the trays of the ToughArmor were extremely durable, and the ICYBento is a nice looking and very capable 3.5" external enclosure. We will be looking at more ICY DOCK products soon, so stay tuned!
