Satechi Aluminum External Hard Disk Enclosure + Multifunction Card Reader
Satechi has unleashed a pair of new aluminum clad accessories to go along with your Mac, and both are sporting USB 3.0—a very good thing for owners of more recent machines. Aluminum External Hard Disk Enclosure ($40) and Aluminum Multifunction Card Reader ($30) offer two different ways to transfer media to and from the Mac. The black and silver design means they’ll fit right in especially well with your favorite Apple computer.
Neither unit throws in any crazy functionality; they both do just what their names imply. The hard disk enclosure accepts 9.5 and 12.5mm SATA hard drives or SSDs, letting you turn them into external storage devices. In addition to USB, it can connect to your Mac via eSATA. Satechi’s card reader supports SD, XD, MS, TF, M2, and CF formats, making it a smart choice for people such as photographers who rely on different kinds of memory cards. It draws power from the USB port, so there’s no need for an extra plug.
