Appearance

It's clear to see that RaidSonic were going for 'elegant' when they designed the Icy Box IB-NAS2000 enclosure. Constructed almost entirely out of black anodised brushed aluminium with a silver trim, the Icy Box would certainly blend in very well with a high end PC case.

Icy Box NAS Side Icy Box NAS Side

The front of the Icy Box contains 4 LED's responsible for showing the current status of the unit. From here, you can tell when the unit has power, when the hard disk is being accessed and whether the unit is connected via USB or Network. Around the side of the unit is a circular meshed grill that provides optimal ventilation for the 40mm fan responsible for cooling the hard disk.

The back of the IB-NAS2000 features a bank of 3 connectors for providing the unit with power and connecting it to your machine via either USB or Network. Further down the back we can also see a 3-way switch for adjusting the internal fan speed and an inset reset switch for restoring the unit to factory settings.
