Cuando abrí la primera, se rompió la tapa. En serio, no podía creérmelo. La segunda la abrí con extremo cuidado, pero ya está a punto de romperse con 10 veces que la he abierto.
No entiendo cómo se puede fabricar un producto así, ya que si se rompe la bisagra ya no se puede utilizar la tapa (no encaja).
SOLUCIÓN: hice 4 agujeros en la parte donde está situada la bisagra, y puse 2 bridas. Ahora se cierra y ajusta con mayor firmeza, y consigo tener los discos realmente protegidos y libres de polvo.

Does pretty much what it claims, better than just leaving an old HDD lying around on a desk. S'alright I spose, but I can't enthuse.
Hard to see how it offers any shock proofing either seeings as there is no padding above or below or on the sides of the drive, just a small pad at the back.
If these were £1 a throw it might be worth it, at this price though it's daylight robbery really...
Essentially this is a cheapish plastic box made to just about fit 3.5" drives in which Icy Box seem to rave a little about. First, what those features actually mean:
Inside it has a couple of foamy cushion pads which hold the drive in place so it won't wobble about but I wouldn't assume this means you can throw the thing against a wall with impunity or even drop it more than a few inches. There's only a couple of pads clamping it at either end so any drive inside is far from being impervious to knocks.
- Dust free
It has a lid!
- Anti-Liquid Splash Material
It's made of plastic! There's no seal on the lid and gaps exist so spill a mug of tea on it and your drive will still be in trouble.
There are a couple of small tabs and recesses on the bottom of the box so should you have more than one, they'd stack without sliding off each other at the slightest movement but these tabs are small so I doubt a stack of more than 3 would be hugely sturdy.
- For all 3,5" HDDs
They fit in.
In practice it seems okay. I initially housed a rather a chunky Western Digital Caviar Black drive in it which was a good fit. Later it housed a Seagate Barracuda drive which was a far slimmer form factor and the drive wobbled around in the box rather disconcertingly. That was until I clicked the lid closed and the foam cushion on the inside of the lid and at the bottom of the case clamped it in place which I admit was rather neat. I haven't tested it with a vast array of drives but it looks like it could house them all and hold them in place. The tabs and recesses that make it stackable are a nice feature but a little insubstantial (the recesses barely exist on mine). I could see tall stacks falling over easily. The plastic it's made out of is relatively thick and sturdy (there are actual HDD enclosures that use flimsier stuff) and translucent so with a little squinting, you might be able to read the label on the HDD inside but the box also ships with a couple of adhesive labels with two slight recesses on the box to stick them on. There's a recess on the lid of the box for a label but you'll have to make your own label for it. The case is far from rugged, should you be transporting drive long distances in these, a bit of extra padding is a must.
It would be nice if it shipped with a few more labels considering the price. The stackable tabs could do with being better and it would be nice if the lid had some form of removable label. The main downside is the price. Though more suitable than just any plastic box vaguely big enough to fit a HDD in, it's not so very suitable as to warrant the high cost for what is effectively still a plastic box. It retails for between £7 - £5, with £7 being insane and £5 being pretty steep, especially once you factor in shipping. Were it either improved or a pound or two cheaper, I wouldn't hesitate to buy more but as it is, I'd have to have a real need to buy another.
I bought another and discovered Icy Box have updated the design and brought a new version though you're unlikely to know which you're getting. So the Icy Box IB-AC602a:
- It's almost Anti-Shock! Now it only has one internal foam pad and is generally smaller so there's less space around the drive. I'd say it now can being picked up and handled with slight roughness, but that's about it.
- It's still Dust free! There's still a lid.
- It's still made of Anti-Liquid Splash Material aka plastic. Still no seal on the lid but it closes without gaps .now
- Still Stackable - just as long as you have the same version. It won't stack with the previous version due to being a different shape with different tabs. The tabs are even less substantial than before and isn't very secure when stacked with the same version either.
- For all 3,5" HDDs, they all still fit.
It also now comes with labels pre-applied, a big garish one on the front and no replacements. Generally worse than before.
I am now however not that infused.
Dropped one yesterday (containing a 2TB drive) on ceramic tiles. Guess what?
You guessed it, it snapped the lid and the drive has not survived its G-Shock.
So the claim of anti-shock is not quite what it says on the tin.
Should have carpeting throughout, the drive may have survived, maybe even the box.
Back to cardboard boxes and foam for me, cheap as they come with the drive when new.
