Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
Scythe introduced a pair of new external HDD/SSD enclosures under the KAMAZO series. These include the KAMAZO-S35-U3-BK, designed for 3.5-inch SATA drives; and KAMAZO-S25-U3-BK, designed for 2.5-inch SATA drives. Both enclosures take advantage of USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface to eliminate interface bottlenecks.
Made of anodized aluminum, the KAMAZO-S35-U3-BK measures 112 x 197 x 30 mm (WxDxH), weighing 268 g. This enclosure draws power from an external AC adapter. The KAMAZO-S25-U3-BK, on the other hand, relies on USB for both bus interface and power. It measures 80 x 131 x 18 mm, weighing 126 g.
Apart from running on PCs as USB mass storage devices, these enclosures are supported by smart TVs such as Toshiba Regza and Sharp Aquos. Slated for May 16, the KAMAZO-S35-U3-BK is priced at 2,480 JPY (US $31), while the KAMAZO-S25-U3-BK goes for 1,280 JPY (US $16).
