In Win Enclosure Roundup - Trio on Trial

Mountain Jade Tiny Tower - Exterior



Our final stop in this little roundup is the smallest of the enclosures tested. This little gem, called Mt. Jade, is a small enclosure that can be either laid over on its side (as pictured above) or stood up in a tiny tower configuration. In either case, the Mt. Jade has a very small footprint.



On the left side of the front bezel are the power button and the mounting area for a single 3.5" device. This device will be mounted vertically when the case is set up as a desktop unit due to the limited amount of space that is available to work with.



Across the way to the right hand side of the front bezel shows us a cutout for a single optical drive and the front I/O ports. I was pleasantly surprised to see a full compliment of four USB ports. While this is becoming more commonplace on larger enclosures, it is not exactly standard equipment on the smaller cases. Also included are the IEEE1394 Firewire port and the expected headphone and microphone jacks.



Moving around to the back shows nothing out of the ordinary. A nice feature, however, is the fact that this enclosure is tall enough to be able to fit in four full height PCI peripheral cards. You probably won't need this capability, but the flexibility is a nice touch.
