Icy Dock MB882HX-1SB 2.5? SATA SSD Xpander Hybrid Adapter can bring new life to your previous generation SSDs. The MB882HX-1SB 2.5? SATA SSD Xpander Hybrid Adapter can double the sequential transfer rate of the HDD in the hybrid partition when paired with a moderate or 2nd generation 2.5? SSD. Once installed, the MB882HX-1SB Xpander Hybrid automatically creates two partitions: an SSD Hybrid partition equal to twice the size of the SSD inside the adapter and a useable storage partition equal to the size of the HDD minus the SSD Hybrid partition. The MB882HX-1SB Xpander Hybrid works with any 2.5? SSD drive but for optimal performance, a 2nd generation or older SATA II SSD with a transfer rate of around 250MB/s paired with a 7200rpm HDD should be used."
