USB 3 External Caddy

Can anyone recommend a "stylish" external USB 3 3.5" hard drive enclosure thay would compliment my 2012 Imac?

I have an ugly constructed PC enclosure with a very noisy cooling fan, that I would be ashamed to place anywhere near my new Mac.

Ideally it needs to be quiet, colour matched, fast and reliable.

Thanks

I don't think the Macally USB3.0 enclosure looks as nice as their USB2.0/FW800 enclosure; however, I have the USB2.0/FW800 version and it's clean, fast, quiet, and looks like it came from Cupertino.
