Are there external drive enclosures that have USB 3.0 and Firewire 800 (and preferably eSATA)?

I've seen many older enclosures that have eSATA + FW 800 + USB 2.0 but I haven't found such an array of options on USB 3.0 enclosures; if it has USB 3 my experience has been that it most likely has no other connection options.

This is your only option if you want all three. Otherwise this one if you want USB and Firewire, and your options if you want USB and eSATA.

Thanks.

I've been having to do an unfortunate amount of work on a mac laptop (a tragedy) which lacks USB 3, making external hard drives difficult as USB 2 is too slow and USB 3 add-on support for macs seems to be extremely sketchy.

As an "added bonus" I'll be able to say that after all these years I've actually used a FireWire 800 port. ;)
