    The Japanese cooling expert Scythe Co., Ltd. expands its product portfolio to external enclosures for 2.5” Hard Disks. Kamazo 2 series are available in three different versions.

    Kamazo 2 IDE (KMZ2-25IDE) and the Kamazo 2 SATA (KMZ2-25SATA) can be connected via USB to your PC, and can connect an IDE or SATA HDDs. Both devices are compatible to the USB 2.0/1.1 standard and don´t require any additional power source. For more versatility, the e-SATA Version (ESATA-KMZ2-25) is compatible with “the” e-SATA Standard as well as “the” USB 2.0/1.1 standard. Operating Kamazo 2 over the e-SATA Interface use of supplied Power-over-USB connector is required in order to properly supply the power to HDD. All three versions are made of solid aluminum which is covered by black paint and require little space which makes this product to be a compact and space saving design.

    Not really that cheap. $34 for eSATA? Bottom line is the thing still only costs a couple bucks to make, and 80%+ profit margins are entirely out of line for this type of product, especially when it offers nothing new or exciting to begin with.

    E-sata is fairly rare on 2.5" enclosures, due to the lack of power over e-sata in most PC's

    My $18 acomdata enclosure has esata, powered by USB.
    It's almost 2010 and Power Over eSATA is still not out. We probably should forget about it for now.
