    And being OWC will probably cost a fortune, albeit being well made.

    Yep. I don't know if they had a product like this in their lineup before - if they did, whatever's changed here is probably 90% cosmetic.


    From skimming the article first, I thought it had USB-C for some reason. Until I saw the back of the thing, and thought "wait ... what?" This is a product that's been on the market in nearly identical versions for years already. Outside of an aluminium casing, what's new? Why is this newsworthy? If it had USB-C, could draw 12V from that to power 3,5" drives, and could use external power and a C-A cable for legacy PCs, that would be something. This is just boring.
