We have been waiting for those for 18 long months, but they are finally coming :
NewerTech miniSTACK v4
and
NewerTech miniSTACK MAX
are arriving (in March ?).
The second adds a Superdrive and an SD card reader to the 3.5" hard disk drive.
Too early to tell if the Optical CD/DVD Superdrive will be a 12.7 or 9.5mm slot-in version; if 12.7mm, a Blu-ray one could be substituted Very Happy .

The ODD add-on is not as compact as the tweak I made using a Mac Mini 2010 case, but much easier (if not cheaper ?).

Two full year after the introduction of the Mac Mini new case in 2010, Newer Technology finally started shipping the miniStack USB3 they announced in January : $90 at OWC; for "only" $390 more (!) it can be pre-fitted with a 4GB 3.5" drive.
The miniStack Max, which adds an ODD to the 3.5" HD is still "coming soon".
