AZIO Corp launches extra storage for Mac users
with the right look and feel

EL MONTE, Calif. (May 24, 2005) — AZIO Corp (, a leading
designer and manufacturer of computer peripherals, has announced a product
designed expressly for Mac enthusiasts, the new Mac Drive Enclosure Kit.
With estimated pricing at $44.95, the Mac Drive Enclosure combines both the
function and the coveted Mac style to blend seamlessly with existing Mac
desktops, laptops and peripherals. Featuring a resilient, high-impact
acrylic case in sleek white with brushed metal case rivets, the drive
enclosure converts any 3.5″ IDE Hard Disk Drives (UDMA 33/66 or
ATA-100/133) into a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 external hard drive by simply
connecting the drive to the cables inside the enclosure. These drives
will begin shipping immediately.

“We wanted to come to market with products that were designed to seamlessly
fit with any Mac user’s desktop,” said Steve Hsiao, vice president of AZIO
Corp. “Mac enthusiasts demand products that satisfy both form and
function. Also, many of today’s Mac users demand added storage for their
many graphics, numerous music files and data-intensive digital videos, so
we thought it was important to bring a drive kit enclosure to market that
gives Mac users extra storage without having to crack open their computer
