Default Enclosure for multiple hd types

Is there such a thing as a multi-bay portable enclosure that can support multiple hd types? I regularly have to work on hard drives of various types, and it would be nice to find a hot-swappable bay that can accomodate all of them. If such a thing doesn't exist, are there other options?

You could ask a harder one:P there it is.
Thermaltakeusa»Storage»BlacX»BlacX Duet : BlacX Duet ST0014U
Vantec ? Vantec NexStar Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock-NST-D200SU- 2.5"/3.5" SATA to USB 2.0/eSATA Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock

And this one is coming soon

Vantec ? NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock - NST-D400S3- 2.5''/3.5" SATA I/II to USB 3.0 Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock

I personnally prefer the Vantec, we add few problem with the TT. These are cheap, hot swap, USB E-sata and if you can wait for the comming soon you can have USB 3. For sure there is single bay model already available but the one I list you are dual bay so you can fit 2 drive at the same time. 2.5 or 3.5 up to 2tb.

Stay away from Thermaltake. I bought one and it's my second RMA in 3 months. The first " repaired " docking station they sent me worked for about 2 days. Right now I'm waiting for the 3rd one, TT sent it yesterday. I hope it'll work correctly this time
