The drive can also be used with storage capable digital cameras and camcorders with FireWire and/or USB data ports for quick, convenient backups of images and video while on the road.

    I like the case, but way to expensive compared to other 3.5" USB 3.0 portable drives.

    The do sell just the enclosures separately ("0GB Option"). Maybe a little more pricey than the Newegg straight from China options, but these are quality.

    $35 right now for the USB 3.0 only one.
