Enermax Jazz enclosures
The American division of Enermax has announced a new line of hard drive enclosures, the Jazz series (not pictured). A predominant feature of the enclosures is a "zero screw" design, allowing onwers of 3.5-inch models to quickly insert or remove hard drives. The units also have aluminum bodies and "waved" mesh covers, which should act to better dissipate heat. Extra conveniences include acrylic stands and three-color LED indicators. The 3.5-inch enclosures support either eSATA ($65) or SATA-to-USB ($55) connections; a 2.5-inch enclousre ($25) only supports SATA, but comes with a water-resistant travel bag. The Jazz line should begin shipping in early October from sites such as Newegg and ZipZoomfly.
