Thanks.

Thanks! 70 bucks for an enclosure that doesn't even have firewire, seems quite expensive. Thanks again for providing the link!

Looks really nice but way overpriced :-(

The second link is:
OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini FireWire 800/400+USB2+eSATA Bus-Powered Enclosure Solution.

It's $109, but has everything except TB and USB3.0

I guess TB enclosures aren't far away

I got one of these and:

1. the case is huge ... bigger then it needs to be

2. The case is clear plastic and will scratch easily

3. The SSD does sit in the case properly and causes the connector to bow (i had to fiddle with it to make it work)

4. Its overpriced for just a 2.5 SSD case with a SATA to blade conversion connector (which does come out)

I really expected this to me much more portable and it should have been smaller.

I returned it.
