Icy Dock MB559US-1S Hard drive enclosure

I am thinking of purchasing the Icy Dock MB559US-1S hard drive enclosure. Although I believe it will take a 500GB hard drive,
I contacted Overclockers (as this is where I am purchasing it from) to ask if the 500GB hard drive that I had chosen would fit, the reply I got said that he thought it may only take up to a 250GB drive, but he wasn't sure and suggested that I contact Icy Box, on looking on Icy Box web site and reading the specs for the Icy Dock MB559US-1S, it made no mention to any maximum drive size limitations.

I was wondering if anyone owns a Icy Dock MB559US-1S and if so have they been able to fit a 500GB hard drive into it.

You should beable to fit any size drive in the box.

Thanks for the reply.

I contacted Icy Dock earlier and they told me,

"Yes, the 500GB SATA II Hard Drive is compatible with the MB559US-1S. There is no capacity limitation on our enclosures as of now"
