Zonet launches inexpensive, stylish storage for PC and Mac users

If you are following my advice and using portable hard drives as your backup solution, these enclosures will allow you to increase capacity simply by changing the drive.

WALNUT, Calif. (February 12, 2008) – Zonet ( a designer and manufacturer of computer peripherals, has announced a product designed to be visually compelling from outside-in and inside-out – the new SATA Enclosures. With estimated pricing between $25 and $35 USD, the SATA Enclosures combine both function and innovative styling to blend seamlessly with the newest sleek PC and Mac desktops, laptops and peripherals that have hit the market. Featuring a resilient, high-impact acrylic case in azure blue or supple leather, the drive enclosures convert any 2.5” or 3.5” SATA hard disk drive into SATA and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 external hard drive by simply connecting the drive to the cables inside the enclosure. Ideal for sharing data between multiple computers or for storing documents, photos and other media files, these bus-powered enclosures (no external AC power needed) are designed to be compact and lightweight – perfect for people who are always on the go! Best of all, every SATA Enclosure supports the XBOX 360 and PS3!

“We wanted to come to market with products that were designed to be easy on the eyes while also offering the very latest chips and components available to the market,” said Jenny Yang, executive manager of Zonet USA. “We wanted to fulfill consumer demand for products that satisfy both form and function. It is for these demanding customers that we expressly designed these SATA drive kit enclosures to offer extra storage without forcing users to crack open their computer case.”
