Scythe Intros Easy HDD Rack Enclosure

Scythe Japan introduced a new accessory that makes hot-plugging 3.5-inch HDDs possible for most users, taking advantage of AHCI hot-plugging feature. The SCEMR-1000 from Scythe occupies one 5.25-inch drive bay in your chassis, and provides a 3.5-inch SATA HDD caddie. Key mounting portions of the enclosure are made of steel, other parts made of ABS. The interface portion of the enclosure is "dumb", in that it merely conveys the SATA interface of the drive inserted to your SATA host controller and PSU. Slated for mid-May, the SCEMR-1000 will be sold by Scythe for 1,480 JPY (US $18.5).

Smarter enclosures allow to disconnect HDD with button push or key switch. That's the smartness of interface.
Normally smarter enclosures have fan, some have temperature monitoring.
This one doesn't seem to have even fan mount and Scyche makes fans. This is what's dumb.
