That's not an enclosure, this is an enclosure! [H]ard|OCP reviews a HDD enclosure that can fit 4 drives. The enclosure it's self is much more stylish than most, but the cooling solution in it is fairly loud, mostly so it can manage to keep 4 10,000RPM Raptors nice and cool. You might blink at the price, but the good news is that it isn't the final price yet.
