Century creates 'naked' external hard drive enclosure

updated 02:35 pm EST, Mon January 29, 2007

Century Tera-Box

Century on Monday updated its popular Tera-Box with the EX35TR4, a drive enclosure for computer owners who regularly add or swap out new storage. In place of a metal or plastic shell, the EX35 has only a small base to connect its drive array through USB. The remainder is based around rubber sheaths that insulate hard disks against shocks and vibrations while leaving the drive exposed for a quick replacement as well as better cooling. Unique feet built into the design let up to four drives stack on one enough without threatening to fall over.

The enclosure works with any Parallel ATA hard drive and can stripe drives in a RAID or leave them alone as individual disks, supporting as much as 2TB of storage spread across four 500GB drives. Compatibility is provided for most modern operating systems and includes Mac OS X as well as Windows Vista. Century is already delivering the barebones enclosure without storage for $105.
