Intrex caries something that might work for what you seem to be looking
for, and it's available locally. The product is a Thermaltake Hardcano
10. It's perhaps more functions in a device that you had in mind,
though. It includes two usb ports, a firewire port, two variable speed
fan controllers, two temperature readouts, and rails to mount a 3.5"
hard drive behind the bay it occupies.
The Intrex part number is CSM-HCANO10, listed at their website here:
Pictures and more info are available here:
You can get information on finding a local Intrex here:
Cost is $29.99.
Up until recently Intrex also carried two different front panel USB
parts, a simple 2-port Antec Easy-USB, as well as a do-it-yourself
casemod-style part that snapped into the InWin V700 case that they
carried. Unfortunately both have been discontinued and are no longer
Hope the info is helpful.
Look forward to meeting a few of the names that have been going by, this
