    Do those exist? I want to buy a reliable enclosure that's not bulky or ugly. I really like the WD Passport ones but can't seem to find those online anywhere. Does anyone have any recommendations for a 2.5" enclosure, or know where to buy an empty WD Passport enclosure?

    Rosewill makes a nice USB/FireWire 2.5" enclosure made of aluminum, similar to the ones made by G-Technology. Here's a link to the enclosure I'm referring to, and I believe if you'll look they also sell a black anodized one too.

    I was looking at this one today. 9to5mac had it listed on their deals. You can get it for 6.49 shipped.

    There is also one that is also all aluminum without the black.
    There are a couple things i'm not sure of though: Does it screw the hard drive in and how big of hard drives does it support - 500gb?.

    Anyone ever heard of this enclosure? I like the OWC enclosures, but this one looks really nice for the price.
